Chorion: Migrating and Consolidating Localised Branded Web Sites With Drupal

Presented by

Chorion is the owner of a number of major brands which it develops globally through the production of family entertainment. Historically Chorion has developed rich flash-based web sites for each of its brands, sometimes for multiple territories.

In 2010 Chorion recognized a number of issues with this approach including:

  • Inability to quickly update sites and dependence upon flash development resources and organisations
  • Inability to interact with social media networks
  • Relatively high cost
  • Inability to localize content easily

David Redshaw, interim CIO at Chorion, will present how they dealt with those issues using Drupal tackling the complexities of internationalisation, multi-brand sites, security models and load testing as well as how they dealt with the organisational issues and also achieved cost savings.
