Reuters Analysis and Opinion
To reinvigorate the Reuters global blogging platform both in terms of content management and performance.
Commissioned in 2008 to take over the management of the Reuters global blogging platform, we first had to overcome legacy issues that were affecting both performance and indirectly usage of the platform. In taking over the development, hosting and support of
the website, we prioritised the hosting performance issues which were quickly resolved before focusing on a more structured approach to the ongoing development of the site.
At this time, the blogging platform was a minor part of the Reuters website and was suffering from performance issues and a general lack of support from the business. With our focus and commitment over the past 3 years, the platform has significantly (can we quantify) grown and is now a core part of the main Reuters website with over 1,500 journalists blogging and contributing content within it 24/7
A project like this doesn’t stop there of course, and our expert teams combining development, hosting and helpdesk actively works on the site adding new features and capabilities on an ongoing basis. This allows Reuters to keep the platform aligned with their
business objectives. The service is also backed up by our very own robust and scalable clustered hosting platform which provides 24/7 monitoring and support.
Reuters therefore enjoy a solid, well supported and dynamic site without needing to draw too much on their internal resources.
