SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The IT department of the future may look a lot like marketing. As more companies make digital marketing a priority, budgets are shifting from IT and the CIO to marketing and the CMO. Small teams must now launch websites quickly, with fewer IT resources than before. Today Pantheon, the all-in-one Drupal platform, announced the availability of Pantheon One, a cloud platform for launching and managing thousands of websites at once. Because developers, designers, and marketing managers can work in tandem on one platform, websites launch faster and cost less to manage over time.
“Corporate websites are often derailed due to resource bottlenecks,” said Zack Rosen, CEO and co-founder of Pantheon. “IT managers get overwhelmed with requirements from multiple business units, and marketers get frustrated when their website launches are delayed. Pantheon One offers relief, addressing the needs of both CMOs and CIOs with a single platform.”
Customers like Arizona State University choose Pantheon because it lets them manage all their websites on one platform from day one. Moving 2,000+ websites to Pantheon One means ASU’s technology team no longer needs to put out fires with servers and downtime. They’re free to focus on more Rosen, CEO and co-founder of Pantheon. “IT managers get overwhelmed with strategic and creative marketing work.”
Here are a few more reasons why companies and organizations choose Pantheon One:
- Best-practice workflows. Its professional-grade tools for designers, developers, and other contractors eliminate risks and cut ramp-up time via standardization and best practices.
- Anyone can customize and update. Designers and other non-technical users can manage common elements like branding and core functionality for all sites, making content and feature changes once and deploying everywhere, without the need for complex or cumbersome workflows or scarce DevOps expertise.
- Eliminates the need for servers and system administration. Nearly 50% of all digital marketing activities are outsourced, according to Gartner’s 2013 Digital Marketing Spend report. Now digital media and content developers can focus on building websites and global brands, rather than managing infrastructure. Since marketing and IT teams no longer need servers or system administration, they can quickly launch and scale websites in the tens, hundreds, or thousands.
Pantheon is the single largest Drupal infrastructure in the world. Based on breakthrough multi-tenant architecture, the Pantheon platform delivers smooth scaling in software and eliminates the hidden risks and costs of traditional web hosting and development infrastructure. Drupal, the world's fastest growing open source CMS, has nearly a million users and powers more than 1.5 million websites globally.
San Francisco-based Pantheon is the single largest single Drupal infrastructure in the world, Pantheon serves up hundreds of millions of requests every day for thousands of customers, many with millions of visitors (or more) a month. All of this is delivered via a multi-tenant platform, allowing for unprecedented efficiency, flexibility and economies of scale.
