The ask.

Red Hat has many initiatives to support their public, partner and employee-facing applications. In the early 2010’s they were searching for a partner with well-rounded expertise and top development talent to handle overflow needs that they could not support themselves. They were maintaining four websites all built on the Drupal 7 platform and needed a team of expert developers, experienced in working with Drupal, to help them with upgrades and migration projects over the years.

The solution.

Our partnership with Red Hat has led to many different types of development projects over the years. With Opensource.com we helped to rewrite custom rules modules that were not maintained well within the community. We provided a design update (Lift and Shift) and  implemented gated content that also integrated with Eloqua. We also, managed their migration from Acquia to Pantheon, which included correcting issues with their sysadmin and architecture within the subdomains.

The end result.

While Red Hat has worked with many contractors and vendors in the past, none of them quite filled the technological niche that they were looking for until they met Atlantic BT.
