Business SituationEMI planned a cost savings program that included web site consolidation for approximately one hundred existing sites hosted across five hosting providers. Web consolidation to a single hosting facility and shared hardware required a plan to implement a core set of web services to deliver content to these and other external web sites.
SolutionAvanade was asked to implement these web services as part of the overall program. A core set of web services that deliver artist, catalog, and album discography information about EMI music artists was implemented using ACA.NET 3.0. The implementation included build-out of the physical hosting infrastructure at the customer’s hosting vendor facility.
