Magnolia CMS has officially announced a partnership with ETECTURE@Ogilvy, the technology arm of Ogilvy & Mather UK. The new partners have developed a dynamically scalable cloud implementation of Magnolia’s open source content management platform. This delivers a flexible technology base for new, more advanced digital marketing and creative campaigns.
“When you capture clickthroughs from intense, interactive media such as social networks, gaming and smart television, a static microsite is not going to keep people’s attention for very long,” comments Daniel Menges, Managing Partner of ETECTURE@Ogilvy. “Consumers now expect new and imaginative digital brand experiences with meaningful functionality. Delivering this demands new levels of power, flexibility and openness from the chosen web technology platform. Having looked at the options in detail, we believe Magnolia CMS offers the best solution.”
Magnolia makes it fast and simple to produce flexible new web environments that can be integrated with existing websites and internal business systems, as well as with external media, information and services. Agencies and marketing departments can not only integrate campaign websites seamlessly into a company’s existing web presence, but also deeper in the back office transactions and processes at the core of the business.
“For us, it is vital that digital creative is no longer stifled by the technical limitations of a client’s incumbent, legacy enterprise CMS or by a lack of capacity within their in-house IT department,” continues Menges. “One of the most common needs we have found for large scale digital campaigns is the ability to scale up very rapidly and handle massive traffic peaks. Our clients do not want the cost and risk of accommodating this within their in-house web infrastructure.”
To answer this need, ETECTURE@Ogilvy has worked with Magnolia on building a new implementation of the CMS that responds to traffic demands with near-instant scaling on Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure. ETECTURE@Ogilvy has used its experience as an AWS Managed Services Partner to develop a set of process automation scripts that replicate live Magnolia instances on demand, without impacting users or ongoing processes within the system.
“Consistent and scalable customer experiences across any device are exactly what Magnolia is about”, says Christopher Justice, Chief Marketing Officer of Magnolia. “From microsites to international product launches, ETECTURE@Ogilvy enables global brands to effectively engage large audiences and easily adapt to changing online user demands with a proven web experience management platform.”
For ETECTURE@Ogilvy, Magnolia also opens up new possibilities for tighter integration with the core business functions behind global brands. Magnolia’s Blossom module offers class-leading integration with the popular Spring Java development framework, which is widely used in the back-office applications at the heart of many large corporations.
“Magnolia allows us to take business logic - the essence of companies’ internal business systems and what they do - and expose this in new, creative ways on the web”, says Menges. “This allows us to develop new, more useful and more meaningful online brand experiences that connect to the technical heartbeat of the organisation.”

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, showed how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningful f...
