CoreMedia CMS: powerful and infinitely scalable

Aperto and CoreMedia have been working closely together since 2003. In 2008, Aperto was the first company ever to be named a CoreMedia Platium Partner - the highest level of partnership awarded by the Hamburg-based CMS provider. Project after project, customers experience our outstanding CoreMedia expertise.

Aperto customers such as the German Federal Foreign Office, KSB, SOS-Kinderdorf Deutschland, Mediacorp and the German Ministry of Defense (BMVg) rely on the CoreMedia Content Management System (CMS). In our long-standing and close partnership with CoreMedia, we have implemented far more than 30 projects with CoreMedia CMS to date.

The Java-based CoreMedia CMS, also known as CoreMedia Content Experience Platform, is designed for large websites and is suitable for both corporate and news portals. In cooperation with IT service providers, Aperto has implemented a CMS solution with the Government Site Builder (GSB) for over 15 projects in the public sector. The GSB was specially developed for the websites of the German Federal Administration and is based on CoreMedia CMS.

Broad-based with CoreMedia CMS

We implemented around 220 country pages in 100 languages for the Federal Foreign Office - using the multi-client capability of CoreMedia CMS. The country websites of the pump manufacturer KSB are also based on CoreMedia. With CoreMedia CMS, any number of pages could be created with little programming effort. Aperto also implemented external APIs to integrate the KSB product catalog and various marketing tools. For the SOS-Kinderdorf website, Aperto used CoreMedia CMS to transparently map the organization's donation process. Aperto implemented a new content strategy for the German Federal Ministry of Defense (BMVg) using CoreMedia Blueprint exclusively.

We work closely with CoreMedia

CoreMedia CMS is a scalable and extensible enterprise web content management platform based on the latest development technologies. The system scores with its outstanding software architecture, including intelligent caching mechanisms. The advantage: With CoreMedia CMS, dynamic websites can be created that are precisely tailored to the context of use.

Developers can implement complete websites with little effort - quickly, easily and yet state of the art. The CoreMedia Blueprint provides the generic template with finished web components. Depending on requirements, the system can be flexibly adapted and expanded.

Editorial work with CoreMedia CMS - simple and transparent

With the "Studio", CoreMedia CMS offers content managers and editors an intuitive editorial interface that can be adapted individually and dynamically. Editorial work can be carried out directly in the browser, without the need for additional installations. Document types can be easily integrated and moved using the drag-and-drop principle. 

CoreMedia CMS is particularly suitable for large editorial departments. An integrated workflow makes it possible: roles and rights can be individually assigned to editors. This makes working easier and more transparent. Editors can edit, release and publish content in a structured way that is comprehensible to other editorial members. For example, changes can be easily tracked in a side-by-side view.

CoreMedia CMS: We offer solutions for the cloud and eCommerce

The CoreMedia CMS can be used flexibly: All CoreMedia CMS components can be used either On Premise or for personal cloud solutions operated by CoreMedia. If required, Aperto can adapt the CoreMedia Blueprint for the cloud with individual templates. For on-premise solutions, we not only design the system architecture - we also offer round-the-clock hosting and support. We tailor on-premise solutions precisely to the needs of our customers: Aperto develops individual features, adapts the scalable CoreMedia CMS system according to requirements and adds or removes instances. 

Editors can use CoreMedia CMS to enrich shop products with content and tailor them precisely to their target groups. CoreMedia CMS can be easily connected to eCommerce systems such as IBM® WebSphere® Commerce, SAP Hybris Commerce or Magento Commerce. Attractive, user-centric content blends with modern eCommerce systems to create a secure shopping experience. The result: a positive customer experience - on all channels.
