The Client

Sigmalive is a news publishing site in Cyprus. As one of the first to enter the field, Sigmalive continues to be a pioneer in its domain of online news publishing.  The need for innovativeness is deeply engrained in the company culture and extends beyond the Sigmalive portal and onto its people who work to keep Sigmalive at the forefront of this industry. 

The Challenge

Sigmalive publishes more than 500 articles daily, serving 5000 concurrent visitors, and has more than 20 concurrent content creators (editors, administrators, and so forth).   It has the need to handle more than 1 million visitors to its site and recently attained some 10 million page views. 

Sigmalive came to Kondiment because they required an innovative, high volume publishing solution that could handle their high peak traffic demand along with their large number of concurrent visitors and users to their site.  They needed a partner that could deliver a flexible, robust, modular and scalable solution, and at the same time also be able to provide strategy and consulting to ensure that Sigmalive maintained its position as the market leader and driver of innovation.


The Solution

The solution has been designed to not only enable the publisher to get the most out of the content displayed on their site, but also, to ensure that the user experience for visitors to the site is seamless, without any disruption or lag time. The solution is highly scalable, robust, and secure, as it has the ability to handle high volumes of traffic (volume and concurrency) without using any CDN (Content Delivery Network) Solutions.

The site’s live blog and live streaming functionalities have added significant value to the site by serving Sigmalive audiences updates in real-time, whether this be breaking news, sports coverage or media commentary.  A mix of media including videos, graphics, social media and polls can also be integrated into the live blog.


The Results

Sigmalive has been another noteworthy achievement for BRANDCORE Customer Experience Platform.
Our years long association has produced incredible results for this innovative online publisher, particularly regarding the attainment of a seamless, high-quality user experience for Sigmalive audiences. A high-quality viewer experience has been achieved through an extensive array of digital processes and systems implemented and utilized by the publisher on their site including content management, content caching, mini-site on demand, polls & competitions extensions, and a timeline extension to present the development of news and stories in a chronological way.

We are proud to mention that we have managed to serve 1,500,000 page views within a 24 hour period with a very high user concurrency, and without the use of any CDN solution.

This, along with many other custom extensions of BRANDCORE Customer Experience Platform initiated solutions, has assisted Sigmalive in retaining its lead as the number one online publisher in Cyprus, continually surpassing any competition through its drive for constant innovativeness.
