Some of the benefits of Amazon's cloud infrastructure include:
OMBU was honored to develop Paramount Pictures current website. This important site features a clean and light design implemented with a responsive front-end that automatically adjusts to smartphones, tablets, and desktop users. The site makes use of cutting-edge HTML5 technologies such as push-state navigation, video, and 3D transformations. OMBU's role in the project included technical planning, platform and infrastructure development, and the migration of Paramount’s extensive movie database. Site design by Sisu.
OMBU planned and developed a customized CMS for the five schools of the University of Oregon's Lundquist College of Business. The College needed a powerful publishing and moderation system capable of delivering its message in a forward-looking design that could reach their wide audience, on any device. We delivered a solution that not only met these requirements, but leveraged and extended existing University systems, such as their calendar and single sign-on solutions, so this shiny new website remained a good neighor in the University's web infrastructure.

When the classic NPR radio show Car Talk saw that their growing web traffic was starting to clog their servers like rush hour traffic on I-95, they came to OMBU for the design and management of a cloud-based infrastructure that could handle pretty much anything. With that success under the timing belt, we then helped them make their porpular content available to smartphone users, their largest growing Web segment.
Stand for Children is a national advocacy group for children's education, with headquarters in Portland, OR. When they asked for assistance with a new site, we raised our hands high above our heads. The goal was to deploy a site that wouldn't just serve their current needs, but also be the foundation for an ambitious multi-year roll-out and keep up with the organization's rapid growth. Site design by Swift Collective.
