This invited paper presents the research work on a Web-based development infrastructure which is based on Microsoft's latest development tools, for the core functions of higher education institutes covering eLearning drop box system, assignment submission marking, examination board reporting etc. After 15 months of development experience with user try out and suggestions, we postulate that the prototype systems produced can be translated into a Make-To-Order (MTO) methodology for rolling out applications that provide better student user experience, more efficient programme administrative operations and better service to teaching faculties via a web-based environment. The MTO methodology includes the Dell (Dell Technology Forum) proposed MAT approach which advocates the concept of Modernization, Automation, and Transformation (MAT).
