The client is a for-profit institution of higher learning based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It offers accredited online Ph.D., doctorate, masters and bachelor degrees for adults.
The client already had its AEM instances, application and content deployed and hosted on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform. It was looking for an in-house AEM platform to cut costs and have more control over the system to customize and integrate features. The client also wanted to upgrade to AEM 6.1 to leverage the new capabilities and architectural changes.
Our team set up an in-house AEM platform to reduce time frames for upgrades as well as faster spinning up of new instances with target AEM versions. We followed up the installation of a new AEM instance with the deployment of the application code compatible with the new AEM APIs, and a new configuration. All the content and assets of the client were then migrated in a phased manner for a seamless transition.
The client’s website performance got a boost after the AEM 6.1 upgrade, with the page download time decreasing by 20%- 30%. The client also got a greater control to integrate the application servers with the enterprise-level tools for enhancing business performance and reducing costs.
