The Situation

Success brings new challenges. Rapid growth and more complex projects make efficiencies and content accessibility a necessity. Cortina recognized they needed to evolve their infrastructure.

“For a number of years we had a server farm, but every type of work was segmented: designers had one server, programmers had another, editors had their own,” says Cortina’s Director of Software Development Bryan Heisey.
