Within the framework of the BR trimedial strategy, television, radio and online collaboration should be fundamentally improved. In addition, it was necessary to sustainably reduce operating costs and expenses for three separate editorial systems. The defined goal was the creation of a central system.

Against this background, sommer + spohr was commissioned to take over the overall project management for this project. Special challenges were on the one hand the demanding and extensive requirements management as well as the creation of a high-performance and highly available platform for the central system. For both aspects sommer + spohr helped to develop and implement very specific procedures.

The new solution was able to go live on time and was far more stable and performant than all previous individual systems. Due to the early and lasting involvement of the user representatives of television, radio and online, the new solution had all the prerequisites to be successively trained and rolled out in these areas.
