IHS revamps its Web site
IHS, a source of information for multinational corporations, governments and smaller organizations, has migrated content to a renovated Web site with the help of Kapow Technologies.
IHS selected Kapow Web Data Server to consolidate several Web site properties into one site under a new Web content management (WCM) system. Kapow automated and simplified the extraction and migration of IHS’ legacy data to the new WCM system from SDL Tridion.
Kevin Spiller, senior director of Web site management and strategy at IHS, says, “The IHS Web site project is a large and very important step in our online marketing strategy, and it will transform how we engage our customers, as well as position us for strategic growth. After our due diligence process, it was clear that Kapow’s successful track record of streamlining complex content migration processes, and the integration with Tridion, was the best option for us.”
In a recent press release, Kapow Technologies says that its Web Data Server allows companies to complete enterprise-grade migrations quickly and cost-effectively because of its automation capabilities. The solution’s intuitive point-and-click interactive development environment (IDE) enables data extraction of all content formats, including static HTML pages, as well as cleaning and standardization of content through data transformation functionality, according to Kapow. The company adds that its connector to the SDL Tridion WCM system speeds and eases the loading of legacy data by eliminating the need for hand-coding to APIs.
