The client needed to migrate to the AEM platform for a better content authoring experience. Our AEM 6.1 implementation effectively managed their translation needs, positioning the site for future growth in 29 regions.
The client was looking to migrate from CQ 5.4 to AEM 6.1 as Adobe ends its support for the CQ platform. A major challenge was to preserve the consistency in the existing assets as well as improve the overall authoring experience on the website. An additional requirement was the integration with AEM’s Clay Tablet Connector to automate the content transmission for all the translation needs.
AEM 6.1 was chosen for its flexibility with the needs of the traditional websites and integrated content management applications, and the client’s requirements for a better authoring experience. We customized the client’s CQ 5.4 version as per AEM 6.1 to maintain consistency for the content and other assets during the migration process.
Next, we removed purge workflows/audit logs to clean system and enhance performance. Regular system health checks such as data store garbage collection were performed to free space. We also changed the OSGI configurations to resolve the post-upgrade issues.
With our meticulous AEM implementation, the client’s websites are better supported in 29 regions, positioning it for future growth. We also improved the website query performance with the addition of properties that need to be indexed. Finally, an improved site performance and content management with better content authoring and translation abilities has led to a better end-user experience.
