  • The Client has 5 different business units across continents and had dozens of websites that were being managed independently on a variety of platforms.
  • Content was duplicated in many cases.
  • Operating is a highly regulated environment meant Compliance risk was high.
  • Given the disparate nature of their current platform, changes to the site(s) were cumbersome and costly.
  • After defining the client’s business goals, Xpediant proposes implementing a single content management system.
  • Xpediant then defined the end-to-end Digital Asset Management process. 
  • Xpediant created an architecture framework that allowed the client to have a visually appealing front end, a business rules middle layer (search platform) and a back-end repository, all powered by the OpenText Web Experience Platform.
  • Given that the client has numerous systems that consume these assets, reuse and asset versions control was improved dramatically. 
  • After several years of improved operation, a further cost reduction directive from management caused Xpediant to recommend a move to an open source platform. 
  • The client was able to take advantage of the architecture designed by Xpediant to transition the site from the more expensive search, portal and experience management platform. Xpediant replaced it with Magnolia CMS, Solr search engine and micro-services.
  • The time savings for building websites was improved by almost 60 percent.  
  • Conservative savings estimates for the client are nearly $500,000 per year.  
  • The reimagined digital asset manager process led to a reduction in third party creative agency costs, driving higher alignment, reuse and asset leverage.
  • The cost savings of moving away from the commercial experience platforms to an open source platform saved the client over $400,000 in maintenance and licensing costs annually.
