Cloud Automation – Automated Prerequisite Checks in AEM Server Deployments

About Client

The client is a large media organization that owns about 40 print and online publications, FM radio stations, and television channels, and publishes one of the world’s most widely circulated newspapers. CCS has been their IT partner for more than 35 years.

Business Requirement

The client relied on an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) web portal hosted on AWS Cloud for the management of their digital content. The AEM application had delays in displaying the latest web content on the live site even after successful deployment. And since the deployment was not automated, it consumed many resources in the process.

CCS Solution

CCS Cloud & AEM Engineers investigated the reasons behind the latency.The team verified ports and functions both on the Cloud and the site to identify the cause of the delay. The Cloud team automated the prerequisite checks to support the deployment any time and verify the supporting packages to ensure successful deployment of new content including port verification, authentication, and access restriction.

Business Benefits

Ability to maintain an updated website with quick deployment of the latest content.

Reduced manual efforts and improved accessibility to the site’s latest content.

Removed the usage of third-party and insecure apps for deployment.

Secured authentication when deploying the latest content.

Resolved delays in deployment by restricting the network access.
