Office 365 Ignite

Aaron Sew-Hoy, Project Manager, Provoke Solutions

"Building the new Ignite solution on Orchard CMS means the site is easy to manage for its administrators. This allows Ignite to  quickly and easily promote new material for IT professionals and maintain a resource rich site for their community."

Ignite Technical Training Public Website



The Office 365 Ignite program provides workshops and learning materials for IT Professionals and Microsoft Partners. The Ignite website delivers information for the program's events and training materials. The previous solution had only basic web content management capabilities, creating delay in publishing this content.

The Ignite program had outgrown its existing website and achieving their operational objectives meant they needed new functionality and an easy way to consolidate all their content in one place. The customer also wanted to bring its visual design more in line with their brand to ensure a complete user experience.


Provoke's deep program knowledge and personal understanding of the customer’s needs meant they were able to quickly turn around solution designs and rapidly deliver. This, coupled with extensive design experience, enabled Provoke to develop the sophisticated and content-rich site Ignite required.

Orchard CMS was selected because of its easy-to-use, lightweight disposition and ability to satisfy all the authoring functions needed. Coupled with its ability to run on the Windows Azure cloud platform meant it was easy to deploy and scalable. It could also be easily customized, giving Ignite greater flexibility.
