The POLITICO challenge

With its sights set on global expansion, the team at POLITICO realized it was time to transition from an outdated, homegrown CMS to a modern content management platform. In order to improve editorial efficiency and better execute on its business strategy, POLITICO needed an extensible, multichannel, real-time publishing solution that would provide stakeholders—both journalists and developers alike—with the freedom to operate self-sufficiently.

The Brightspot solution for POLITICO

Brightspot empowered the expansion of POLITICO’s coverage beyond Washington, D.C., to additional states and global markets across three sites: POLITICO, POLITICO PRO, and POLITICO Magazine. All of these enhanced sites are managed within one integrated editorial interface.

POLITICO project highlights include:

  • A centralized content repository that provides enterprise-wide access and encourages the reuse and repurpose of shared content.
  • The ability to launch new page and site experiences quickly and easily without reliance on developers.
  • Subscription, license, and user management across POLITICO.com and POLITICO PRO within the same CMS platform and SSO capabilities for users.
