Proof from the past

1996, Hamburg, Germany. People were starting to ask what a Pokémon was, Gen-Z weren’t even born and two university students are on the cusp of a ground-breaking new business. Software that could create and edit text, audio, video and images, all stored in a single CD-ROM for easy distribution. What’s not to love? 

But the internet was coming, so the idea was expanded into something truly fit for the future. A content management system to breathe new life into digital marketing. A system that could keep up with a constantly shifting space. In the 2000s e-commerce went global. We adapted with translation and localization tools. The social media explosion of the 2010s? No problem, we connected the tech. The smartphone revolution? How about unique responsive design tools. 

Brands started to take notice and CoreMedia went global. 

We won the hearts of Deutsche Telekom, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Emerson Electric and the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. We broke into retail and fashion, providing stunning brand experiences for Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Deckers. 

As tech and channels have changed, we've innovated with new solutions, curating an all-in-one service for our customers. Always with the same aim, to make the complex simple.    

Our client successes

Promise for the future

In the beginning we travelled from customer to customer, installing our software using CD-ROMs. Today our Content Cloud CMS looks a little different to say the least.  

One thing that’s stayed the same though, is our relationships with customers. We have deep roots with our clients because we blend the most innovative tech with real people. People they can really work with. Creators, innovators, solution-finders. Technically minded dreamers who love to think big. 

Lasting partnerships with so many leading businesses speak for themselves. Businesses like Deckers, Luxottica, PVH Corp, Finnair, Deutsche Telekom, Continental, Claas, Emerson, DMG-Mori. As their needs continue to change, our people are always there, finding new ways for our tech to help them succeed. 

Today, as the pace is once again turbo-charged, we’re already developing new connections to deliver unimaginable leaps forward in hyper-personalization for our clients. For the first time ever advanced AI technologies can deliver experiences that truly talk directly to individuals. Together with our clients, our partners and our community we are helping to shape the future once again.

How digitally evolved are you?

Evolution is adaptation to change. Will you survive?

Keeping up in a fast-paced digital world can be a struggle. Whether your business is still stuck in prehistoric times, or already fully-evolved, finding out where you fall on the Digital Evolution Model will help you stay competitive.

Stage 1: Fragmented: Multiple Channels

You’re a digital dinosaur!

You have a beautiful website, but with fragmented digital experiences, you run the risk of extinction.

It’s time to evolve.

Your audiences want a seamless experience, no matter what's happening behind the scenes. When your experience is different or difficult, it’s important to start with the basics, such as cultivating a holistic approach to online digital experiences. Realign your teams, platforms, processes, goals, and metrics around a comprehensive view of the online experience. Focus on the end-to-end customer journey cutting across channels, desktop and mobile.

Stage 2: Integrated: Multiple channels

You’re a fish!

Signs of exciting life are starting to form. Your DX is responsive and adaptive but it’s not quite personalized yet.

Keep swimming!

The integration of your brand content across every touchpoint (website, online store, social media, emails, apps, point of sale) creates immersive experiences. These flagship sites combine content-rich brand experiences with immediate conversion capabilities. Business teams and marketing are closely aligned. However, while the digital experience is responsive and adaptive, it’s not yet personalized.

Stage 3: Instant: Global expansion

You’re a crocodile!

You’re taking it global. Speed and scalability are key and just like a crocodile, you’re fast…but you’re clumsy.

Oh snap!

In this stage, the online digital experience becomes completely dynamic. You need content that is global, yet relevant, with plenty of local insights: Who is the user? Are they using a mobile phone? Is it raining where they are? Is it snowing? If it is, maybe they need warm, waterproof boots. All of this contextualized information creates a better user experience. With one global orchestration, you’re able to adapt everything, in whatever country or language you choose – while keeping turnaround times low. So keep evolving.

Stage 4: Dynamic: Real time personalization

You’re a lion!

You’re reaching more customers in more countries and languages than ever before, and now you’re finally hunting and collecting info with precision.

But you can do more to keep your brand roaring!

As you graduate to the Instant level, you’re able to rapidly update everything - not just in one language and for one country, but in 20 languages and for 100 countries. Speed and scalability are key, driven by the need to roll out global campaigns in all languages and all touchpoints and make updates in minutes or hours, not weeks. But there’s still more to do to reach nirvana.

Stage 5: Immersive: Elevated experiences

You’re Captain Content!

You’ve done it! You have opposable thumbs AND you’re saving the world with your seamless, elevated customer experiences.

You're a superhero in the digital space.

Your digital world and your physical world are blending together in the most complementary way possible. When shoppers visit your store, they’ll be greeted with their pre-selected products. Language changes dynamically depending on country of origin – it's like the whole store was set up just for your one specific customer.

In this final stage, your customer experience is truly immersive and superior, and your flagship store merges your physical and digital world into one, with a truly personalized individual experience.
