Globally Load Balanced, Auto-Scaling Content Management and Delivery System

We architectected, built, monitor and maintain a global content delivery system for a leading publishing house. In conjunction with a team of third-party software developers, we built a system on AWS that ingests content authored by journalists, deploys this content across locations based in the US, AsiaPac and Europe and delivers the content using truly elastic cloud based technologies.

Serving over 130,000 concurrent users at daily peak and being fed by extremely viral social media traffic, our system automatically grows itself by building new worker virtual servers at various graduation points, routes traffic strategically to healthy working zones, then closes down virtual servers in an orderly fashion when they are not needed any more. This 'build and dispose' ethos ensures that resources are kept at an optimal level thus saving cost when the systems are experiencing quiet periods.

This system has been a revolution for this publishing house, taking the huge headaches of systems administration away from staff and allowing them to scale exponentially on a global scale without further capital expenditure.


iPad Based Presentation and Business Impact Modelling Apps

We have built various sales and discovery apps for leading global pharma and financial services clients crossing multiple business functions and use cases. Mostly presentational in origin, many of these apps feature rich, retina-quality, adaptive, multi-lingual content as a starting point to a discovery and/or sales process.

The apps then go on to capture analytical data, business impact data and comparison data, most of them then culminating in a report, an interactive graph or any other sort of ongoing engagement. All of our apps are somehow cloud-connected, with content being managed and synchronised, and with analytic and CRM data all being synchronised via secure data feeds. Multiple sales and customer facing teams around the world are using our apps to automate their workloads.


Digital Asset Management System - Various Corporate Clients

Following demand from several clients including leading names in the pharmaceutical and retail sectors, we developed a secure Digital Asset Management System (DAM). The DAM is designed to allow sharing of digital files and documents within a private network between project stakeholders, including clients, project managers and vendors.

The DAM system will typically sit on a secure virtual private cloud within AWS, Microsoft Azure or your hosting platform of choice, is fully penetration tested using third party ethical hackers and features ultra-secure SSL layers for data transmission. We use solid audit trails and logging within the application to ensure that all changes and moves/deletes are fully tracked for compliance reasons.

Other features of the DAM include multi-role and group management, folder creation and allocation to groups, multi-role file view/edit functionality and read/write access specific to folder, group and user. The DAM has streamlined the file sharing workflow for multiple clients and has decreased their dependency on less secure, more commercial SaaS based systems.
