CMS

IfThen’s technical team has been working in high-volume, high-velocity publishing environments for 20 years and has implemented a wide range CMS platforms over that period, from bespoke CMS systems for the largest news site on the web to open source and commercial CMS platforms for both large media properties and consumer marketing companies. Our experience in large editorial publishing environments has given us a deep understanding of publishing processes and workflows, as well as third-party integration requirements. We offer particularly deep expertise in both Adobe AEM (CQ) and Drupal. In addition, we have extensive experience developing back-end REST services as well as TVE integrations (OAuth, SAML, Adobe Pass, etc), and video ad insertion.

Our team brings more than 25 years of experience across major news, sports, entertainment, finance, and lifestyle digital brands. We delight in helping you delight your users.

Analytics & Optimization

The ultimate goal of our Analytics team is to help our clients make better decisions. We believe that the most fundamental business questions can often be answered with simple truths, but that those truths are often hidden in the "whats" and the "whys" must be discovered. We operate across a wide variety of data applications and analyses from simple website analytics, to aggregated business intelligence and multi-channel attribution models.
