The move to AEM as a Cloud service helped in achieving 25% savings on licensing cost.
The need to unlock innovation and drive efficiency in product upgrades.
A cybersecurity giant, well-known for its innovative approach in its field, was determined to do just that – innovate to enhance customer engagement on their site. Constant product updates and service packs came in the way of achieving their objectives. They decided to migrate their website to AEM as a Cloud Service, unleashing the potential to innovate seamlessly eliminating distractions. The underlying need was to leverage digital content to effectively engage with audiences of all types, making this one of the biggest migrations of its kind in the Hi-Tech space ever undertaken.
The client chose Brillio to drive the migration including code optimization, refactoring, and version upgrade of tech stack while incrementally optimizing and refactoring the code.
Charting the Digital Frontier with AEM Cloud
Brillio and the client began the quest. The objectives were clear. First, migrate non-PCI pages to AEM on Adobe cloud and bid adieu to on-prem servers while ensuring applications are compatible with cloud. Next, accelerate their time-to-market on product updates and save costs on upgrades. The weapon: code refactoring.
However, refactoring was impacted due to transformation, and this called for the Brillo and Adobe teams to collaborate and understand the impact. Brillio engaged closely with Adobe to complete code refactoring and optimization.
Integration with third-party applications opened new doors, while over 40 components were meticulously refactored. A custom CICD pipeline was set up, and a partnership with Clay tablet brought seamless integration. Adobe played a pivotal role in offering solutions and resolving issues. With this, the client had streamlined code base as per best practices.
A transformation in customer engagement and costs alike
With the migration, AEM on-prem technical debt was eradicated, making way for a modern cloud migration. IT dependencies and operational costs dwindled. Time-to-market was slashed, and the end-users were welcomed into a more engaging digital realm. The AEM architecture and code now adhered to best practices, creating a robust foundation for the future. The result? Active users managed seamlessly across six continents, ushering in a new dawn in digital engagement.
