Our work with Reuters Events
Since 2013, we have been providing support and development for the company's portfolio of Drupal-based news and information portals. Initially starting with a portfolio of 14 sites, this grew to 21 sites at its peak.
In addition to ongoing support services, we began a roll-out programme in 2014 to rebuild each of the sites in Drupal 7, improving the design and UI and making the sites responsive. We also integrated a number of the sites with multimedia platform, Ramp, enabling audio and video content to become searchable by text and providing a valuable additional resource of conference material and other audio/video to their subscribers.
The whole platform is hosted by Adaptive via Amazon Web Services.
We had struggled to find Drupal developers with the right balance of resources to pro-actively lead on new projects, whilst maintaining their ability to react to the daily updates and amendments our existing sites require. In both of these respects, Adaptive have, and continue to deliver excellent results.
