Budget Challenge Case Study

Budget Challenge had a website challenge.  Their site was cruising at a few hundred users per day, but a unique marketing opportunity rose quickly that required them to prepare for as many as 50,000 user per day ... almost overnight.  Normally, even the most successful small businesses grow more slowly.  The team at Budget Challenge knew that they needed to scale very rapidly and there was no margin for error.  A site that was using simple structures and single web servers had to increase capacity to multiple web servers and robust databases with high availability and distributed load.

Retaining Healthcare Resources: a Practice Sights Case Study

Practices Sights had a very unique challenge. Although their new website would be publicly available, it was not a public website. Rather, they needed a data-collection and application platform to conduct and process statistical data and deliver results and reports to a small group of organizations and Practice Sights team members.
