NOW Digital Designed a New Platform for Yarra City Council
NOW Digital delivered a new, integrated digital experience platform for Yarra City Council, one of Melbourne’s youngest councils.
Yarra City Council
Yarra City Council is one of Melbourne’s youngest councils, formed in 1994 and incorporating some of the oldest suburbs in Melbourne and more than 230 hectares of open space.
NOW Digital was tasked with performing a full-scale multi-site redevelopment on Sitecore XP and hosted on Microsoft Azure, with a key driver being updating the site look-and-feel and delivering complex integration requirements in seamless, user-friendly manner. Through an agile delivery process, the re-platforming project was delivered early, on budget.
A Modern Digital Experience
Yarra City Council engaged NOW to lead the delivery of a new, integrated digital experience platform using Sitecore XP, a platform providing a seamless transition between Council’s many supporting systems and technologies and delivering its content authors the power and flexibility to create rich, modern, attractive, responsive and fully WCAG-compliant websites with ease.
Azure Cloud Delivery
Yarra City Council’s new platform was designed from the ground up for hosting in the Azure cloud architecture using an IaaS model with SQL Azure. Fully automated continuous integration and automated deployment processes were established by NOW and in place from day one, providing a best-practice development and delivery model that leverages the major benefits of the cloud, including DR and the ability to scale and load/geo-balance, while minimising cost.
