WALTHAM, MA, January 25, 2012 – Uoma, headquartered in Helsinki and winner of a Deloitte Technology Fast 50 award for being the fourth fastest growing company in 2010 in Finland, has launched a new website using Telerik Sitefinity deployed in the cloud on Microsoft’s Windows Azure.
With the growth of their online business, Uoma wanted to increase agility in enterprise CMS deployment. Their goals included achieving faster turn-around for marketing campaigns and for web content publishing as well as allowing IT to focus on their own strategic projects. To meet the requirements for an easily scalable solution, Uoma chose the Windows Azure platform. Sitefinity was the natural choice for the website as it offered all the core features out of the box. "We have worked with other content management systems before, but none of them comes close to the flexibility and extensibility that Telerik Sitefinity offers." says Mikko Heilimo, R&D Director at Uoma.
Among the main benefits provided by the new website were:
- Scalable cloud solution;
- Approximately 60% more visitor capacity at the same cost level;
- Service Level Agreement increased from 98% to 99.5%, with no additional cost;
- Reduced overall development time (cut by 40% to 1.5 weeks).
“As organizations evolve and respond to growing online presence needs, it is increasingly difficult and expensive to scale IT infrastructure,” said Ivan Osmak, Product Manager of Sitefinity at Telerik. “With Sitefinity and Windows Azure, companies achieve greater scalability without additional cost – enabling them to focus on their core business.”
