NEAMB

Fast and Efficient Content Migration to Sitecore

The Challenge

The National Education Association Member Benefits (NEAMB), a subsidiary of the National Education Association (NEA), offers discounts and benefits on travel, insurance, finance, and more for teachers.

As part of the NEAMB site redesign, neamb.com was migrated from a legacy CMS to Sitecore. One of the challenges in the migration process was moving all the existing content to the new Sitecore system.

Armed with the experience of previous projects and already running the NEAMB Build Project on Sitecore, Oshyn could simultaneously coordinate the data migration process.

The Solution

To provide the required flexibility, Oshyn introduced Wave, a proprietary version of agile development. The first step was to define the Wave-based project and introduce the client to the methodology. The Oshyn team members from the previous project were carried over to the new project in order to improve communication and create a fast, responsive team capable of building and maintaining site components.

Oshyn provided the opportunity to execute any task from new development, maintenance, or support in a single project and covered many of the possible future requirements.

Jira was utilized to provide full transparency on tasks and progress to NEAMB and their marketing team.

A UI and Unit testing system was integrated to reduce the testing time and increase the test coverage. Since the client was part of the team, User Acceptance Testing also became part of the process to complete a task, reducing the overall task time.

The Outcome

The content was successfully migrated in time for the website relaunch. The use of Siteport helped to make the process more efficient and reduced the expected content migration time
