Problem Statement

The client is a leading regional property developer with adjacent retail and community business units. Their line of business application landscape included a variety of legacy CMS solutions that have not been updated over the years. The CMS utilized a number of third-party modules and out-of-date templates, which have prevented its further development. It did not talk to the current portal platform, leading to a disjointed service. The CMS did not lend itself to the rapid development of micro-sites and the search function currently in use lacks administrative functionality. The ultimate goal was to adopt the public cloud and reduce legacy maintenance, further adapting to modern technology landscape changes.

What was needed: Architect and deploy cloud-native SiteCore along with upgrading existing CMS

Solution

After initial assessment and workshops sessions to on-board proposed design and delivery plan, phased out implementation is kicked off. The onboarding and enablement of the client’s development team were conducted by establishing a CMS containerisation process and CI/CD pipeline for the same with release process improvisation.The SiteCore modules were evaluated with the required changes and deployed on top of AKS cluster with helm packaging and scanning which is controlled through Azure DevOps. Once the entire application and database were migrated, the new process was documented, and customers were onboarded to the new process.

Desired state
Seamless integration with existing platforms
The new CMS allowed customer to integrate seamlessly and securely with the new customer portal to create a platform that can meet the digital requirements for the foreseeable future and provide a much more personalised and responsive experience.
