With more than 50 websites under its umbrella, the AHA relied on a legacy content management system that was severely outdated. Maintaining its sites was cumbersome and expensive. Internal AHA developers struggled to manage the system’s increasing demands, and each site featured heaps of bulky, redundant code, slowing the user experience for everyone.
Our team partnered with internal stakeholders to diagnose the greatest headaches across the legacy system and create a scalable architecture that AHA admins could manage themselves. The resulting Enterprise Drupal Platform (EDP) streamlined the AHA digital experience, uniting each property under a single content management system while integrating complex search and single sign-on capabilities.
The EDP immediately shrank AHA’s technical debt. By removing site redundancies and introducing flexible components, custom themes, and independent domains, the new architecture transformed the AHA experience from an outdated chore into a modular machine.
