Digital Transformation on a Deadline
Elastic needed to replace its CMS and redesign its website in three months or less.
A New Tech Stack, a New Brand, a New Design, and Not a Lot of Time.
A Consultative Approach
Raw Engineering stepped up quickly to help Sylvie identify and address the pain points in Elastic’s current platform. We partnered with Sylvie to architect and implement a new nimble Tech Stack with a microservices-first approach, while concurrently developing the new website brand and design.
- Architected a Microservices-first Technical Stack
- Contentstack CMS Implementation and Management
- Web/CMS Development
- DevOps & Cloud Management
- QA Automations & Testing
- Ongoing Technical Maintenance & Support
We analyzed how Elastic planned to use Contentstack - who would be editing content, how workflows would be approached, how content would be approved, etc. We also looked at Elastic’ content approach and environment requirements (dev, staging, production). Once we analyzed this data, we created the Content Architecture, Platform Architecture, Set up the User Management workflows, and set up Elastic’s AWS environment.
Elastic wanted to develop its website using a framework that was fast, scalable, and simple. That is why we chose ReactJS. It enabled our experienced engineers to develop a more stable site more quickly efficiently.
Exceptional Service & Project Management
We used, and continue to use, Agile Ceremonies (Scrum / Kanban) including grooming meetings and daily standups. We track progress using a JIRA and resourcing via Harvest. We also conduct weekly, general Account Management meetings and remain in constant contact with the Elastic project team via slack and email. Additionally, we provide Elastic a clear escalation path should the need ever arise.
