Business Situation - The Challenge

Chevron was overwhelmed with the task of managing important employee news and critical personnel information. The information was sourced from multiple locations through a message bulletin board system. They needed a more efficient electronic central clearing house for sourcing, managing, distributing and archiving massive amounts of information content on a daily basis.


We created the Corporate News Portal for the client. The clients corporate office team approached Aptia seeking a solution. A working group was formed, a principal lead stakeholder was selected and requirements and use cases were gathered from various stakeholders. We then worked with the group to design a custom enterprise-grade content management and distribution software application based on these requirements.

One key requirement was that the application needed to connect to thousands (and later, tens of thousands) of subscribers. The corporate news application was launched as a central clearing house for employee news and information. Since inception, the application has grown in popularity and now supports additional information and data management for other business units throughout the organization.
