Common People United (CPU) had a client with strict requirements about leveraging Adobe Experience Manager (AEM), a Java based CMS, for a new campaign website. The site would be targeted to end users and had specific goals for conversions and reach. CPU needed a partner to help with requirements gathering, project phasing recommendations, generation of user stories, and minimum viable product suggestions. RocketBuild had limited direct AEM experience, but that experience coupled with vast Java knowledge provided a foundation for discovery, partner vetting, and strategic project planning.
Provided technology and strategic consulting to a client looking for a partner with experience in a specific CMS Platform.
Brand new CMS
Potential dev parters vetted
Development recs to partner
RocketBuild met with CPU to work through user stories and gather high level requirements. We dug into Adobe Experience Manager to amplify our understanding of its capabilities and limitations. Potential development partners were vetted based on experience level, cultural fit, ability to work within the client’s timeline, and the plans they presented. CPU needed to provide their client with transparent, communicative, and collaborative partners who would be able to deliver a finished site that met the needs of the project.
The discovery engagement deliverables included three proposals. Two of the partners researched provided proposals, which were shared with CPU. In the course of the discovery engagement, it was decided that RocketBuild could confidently provide the development required by the project, so the third proposal was submitted by RocketBuild at the request and approval of CPU and their client.
One of our favorite parts of a project is helping to discover opportunities, define goals, and develop the plan for implementation. Engaging early with Common People United allowed us to provide greater insights and additional value above and beyond generating code.
RocketBuild's contributions went beyond mere technical knowledge. They are strategic, big picture thinkers, and they are truly a joy to work with. We couldn't have asked for a better partner on this project and look forward to future collaboration!
