The Durst Organization together with Alitek, its professional services partner, implemented OpenText Content Suite (CSP) as its core content repository for capturing, storing and tracking the lifecycle of all business content. Durst's preference was to use CSP's out-of-the-box functionality as much as possible and thus steer away from building customizations.
However, in some cases, Durst's specific needs and business requirements were unaligned to CSP's standard capabilities and therefore the creation of easily maintainable tailored solutions was necessary. With this in mind, Alitek recommended Module Suite as the framework with which to create solutions through a low-coding approach and without the use of proprietary languages.
Thanks to a few demonstrations, Durst was able to perceive Module Suite's capabilities in enhancing as well as extending CSP's standard functionalities. It also become clear that Module Suite would provide the tools and framework needed to create bespoke solutions without having to resort to inflexible customizations.
With the support of Alitek, high-productivity solutions were quickly created and rolled out within Durst. The benefits of these solutions were an increase in end-user satisfaction and a subsequent wider adoption of CSP.
By allowing CSP to be tailored and personalized while maintaining customizations to a bare minimum, Module Suite became the go-to solution for Durst's present and future projects. Whenever a new requirement emerges, Durst and Alitek are now better equipped to propose a solution on CSP without having to resort to purchasing additional software. In the future Durst will grow its in-house resources skilled on Module Suite in order to support the expansion of CSP use-cases and to discover new ways of leveraging the technology.
"Even when a solution appears hard to obtain Module Suite makes me confident to think outside the box."
