TIME - DIGITAL CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Time Inc. is one of the largest media companies in the world reaching more than 130 million people globally each month across multiple platforms. They run a total of 24 magazine titles as individual properties on the web. These sites are overseen by a multitude of editorial staff and, over the years, the editorial UI became an amalgamation of custom integrations between Vignette, Wordpress and their homegrown TIPS CMS. The architecture was becoming cumbersome and creating a number of issues.
Over a span of 18 months Time Inc. made a tremendous investment in Drupal to be the core of their DCMS. With Appnovation, they developed a large infrastructure around managing editorial Drupal sites and integrated Drupal into their legacy systems.
Pfizer - PFIZERPRO DRUPAL MIGRATION
Pfizer, Inc. is an American multinational pharmaceutical corporation headquartered in New York City, with its research headquarters in Groton, Connecticut. It is one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies by revenues. Their global portfolio includes medicines and vaccines as well as many of the world's best-known consumer health care products such as Advil, ChapStick and Centrum.
As part of Pfizer’s strategy to standardize their web properties to the Drupal platform, the Pfizer business technology unit wanted to migrate all of the PfizerPro microsites from the NetWeaver platform to Drupal.
The project saw the PfizerPro homepage and all 60 of its microsites migrated to Drupal. The project leveraged automated migration technology, which Appnovation developed in the POC. This allowed all sites to be migrated without requiring recertification by the compliance department.
The second stage of the PfizerPro Drupal Migration Project was in migrating the US PfizerPro site over to the new responsive Global Template hosted on Drupal. The purpose of this project was to implement the new PfizerPro design for the main PfizerPro website, using the new Advanced Template.
In parallel to the main Drupal Migration project, Appnovation was executing two other projects simultaneously:
- Creation of the new Advanced Template for Drupal
- Drupal Redesign of the new PfizerPro website
This project was dependent on the completion of the new design and the new Advanced Template. Once new PfizerPro sites were live in production, the site owners for each microsite were encouraged to move to the new Advanced Template as well.
The Economist Group - SITE REDESIGN & BUILD
The Economist online is the digital arm of The Economist Group responsible for all of The Economist’s online properties. The Economist online offers authoritative insight and opinion on international news, politics, business, finance, science and technology. The Economist maintains a searchable online archive that dates back to June 1997 and offers a variety of web-only content, including blogs, debates and audio/video programmes.
Appnovation redesigned a site for The Economist’s Global Marketing Group that consolidated digital media buying for all The Economist publications for agencies and clients. With a smoother, consistent look and feel, The Economist achieved not only online brand consistency, but also a site that properly reflects The Economist’s spirit of innovation and embrace of digital.
The Appnovation team used a full-on Scrum/Agile process, emphasizing collaboration, team self-management and the flexibility to adapt to emerging business needs to design and deliver the new website. The design phase included development of the site map, wireframes and detailed page designs, and laying the groundwork for an efficient development stage. The final delivery provided The Economist with a single maintainable codebase, lowering update/maintenance effort and cost.
The World Trade Organization - Management Information System (MIS)
The World Trade Organization (WTO) is the only global international organization dealing with the rules of trade between nations. At its heart are the WTO agreements, negotiated and signed by the bulk of the world’s trading nations and ratified in their parliaments. The goal is to help producers of goods and services, exporters, and importers conduct their business.
Appnovation designed and developed a management information system (MIS) that contains all information pertinent to the management of The Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF) (a multi-donor programme, which helps least- developed countries (LDCs) play a more active role in the global trading system, and promotes economic growth and sustainable development, helping to lift more people out of poverty) projects and helps to streamline operational procedures and incorporate notifications and alerts.
It serves as the main management and tracking tool for the EIF Partnership that includes project-related information, data, EIF Board decisions and documentation in a transparent and user-friendly manner.
The new MIS allows countries to submit forms and other documentation related to new and existing projects.
Based on those submissions, the Executive Secretariat (ES) and the Trust Fund Manager (TFM) will be able to provide comments. The ES will also be able to send documents to the EIF Board and EIF Board Members to allow the approval/rejection of documents and to provide comments within their restricted areas.
