Oshyn Team Rebuilds Sitecore Site for California Teachers Association

Los Angeles, CA – April 27, 2012 – Oshyn Inc., (www.oshyn.com) an Enterprise Technology Agency with a reputation for delivering innovative business solutions and products for the web, mobile devices and emerging technology platforms, is pleased to announce the release of theCalifornia Teachers Association (CTA) new site built on Sitecore 6.5. 

“When CTA.org contacted us to help them update their current Sitecore implementation, we discovered that their site had been build using custom coding that completely bypassed Sitecore’s main content database,” said Christian Burne, Oshyn Vice President of Services. “We started the entire implementation again from scratch, using only Sitecore best practices.”

Oshyn migrated CTA.org’s over 3,000 pages using Siteport, an automated CMS platform migration solution. Siteport allowed Oshyn to migrate CTA.org’s content, tags, author items, location items and media library in less than three weeks. This automated software allowed Oshyn to reduce CTA’s platform migration time by 90%.

“With Siteport, we were able to take our focus off migration and put our efforts into implementing Sitecore using only best practices,” said Burne. “Now the site is much more editor-friendly.”

Besides upgrading CTA.org from Siteport 6.2 to 6.5, Oshyn also implemented Sitecore’s Web Forms for Marketers, allowing non-technical editors the ability to easily make forms for their site. Now that CTA’s site has been implemented using only best practices, editors can easily maintain, update and upgrade their site.
