Heavy flooding from Hurricane Katrina absolutely destroyed the hosting systems used by the University of New Orleans, forcing them to take extreme measures to maintain at least some type of digital presence in the months following the storm.
Their homegrown solution relied on outdated technology that was surely going to be a temporary fix for the school. In 2010, as the school began to recover and stabilize itself, university officials knew they needed to transition to a more adaptable, robust CMS solution.
But which CMS platform would they choose?
One thing was for certain: the school wanted to turn to a CMS that was easy to install, affordable, and could integrate with systems like Active Directory.
The University of New Orleans chose DNN.
“DotNetNuke [DNN] enabled us to stick to our aggressive deployment schedule, and gave us great support from the very beginning stages with formal training and unlimited technical assistance,” said Walt Brannon, manager of messaging and media systems for University of New Orleans.
Under unique, dire circumstances, the University of New Orleans discovered that only one CMS – DNN – could offer them the full features they needed, in addition to a quick deployment.
But they’re not the only ones who’ve discovered the power of DNN.
