Challenge

Back in 2012 DTU formulated a new communication strategy with digital as the most central driver for sharing knowledge amongst DTU, and the societies around them. This included all internal platforms and systems to be integrated into one central platform to ensure more efficient workflows and knowledge sharing internally, and externally. The platforms communicate to multiple target groups including all students, applicants, press, teachers and any other person related to DTU. DTU hosts students and teachers from all over the world. They decided to base the new platform on a Sitecore multisite solution with Kruso as their digital partner.

Solution

Kruso has been DTU’s trusted digital partner all the way, and been responsible for the development, launch and maintenance of this ambitious Sitecore project. The complex platform stands out for its ease of use, excellent service design, flawless performance and stability. The system is serving up data from a wide range of various 3rd party and internal systems in more than 40 different integrations. This includes ERP systems, various specialized learning platforms, training management systems and many more.

Result

The prestigious award “Sitecore Site of the Year 2013” proves that DTU has one of the most complex and market leading Sitecore sites till date – honoring the sky high ambitions of this international elite university. The entire platform today consists of more than 700 individual sub sites, 35.000 pages, +200 editors and 200.000 unique visitors per month.
