Project

Progress (NASDAQ:PRGS) and Layer 8 Connect partnered to deliver the Content Anywhere Cloud ™, a single center for marketers to create, develop, update and automatically deliver dynamic content across multiple platforms. Content Anywhere Cloud was the first commercial Platform as a Service (PaaS) introduced to the Cisco Intercloud.  At the time, as a Progress partner and certified sitefinity developer, the Glenfield Digital Group consulted directly with Layer 8 Connect on the proposed platform strategy and execution. This included content services platform planning, usability trials, and client scenario testing.

  • Assisted in the concept of the first “headless” CMS, providing strategic consultation to all parties involved.
  • Helped articulate the vision for the Content Anywhere content services platform.
  • Conducted trials with major Australian enterprise customers for the Content Anywhere Cloud beta.
