Burn it Down: a Case Study in CMS Replatforming
Fairfax Media, one of Australia’s largest publishes, collaborated with Human Made to replace its proprietary CMS with WordPress. The transition to using WordPress as an enterprise-grade CMS was a bit scary but on release day it ended up being like any other day in the newsroom.
After months of working hand in hand with a client on a nose-to-tail relaunch of a newsroom’s CMS, it was a dream come true for it to be just another day.
