Case Study | App modernization merges 70 brand websites into one user-friendly digital platform

App modernization case study image


Purina, a leading pet product company, faced a significant challenge with its digital presence. Its global portfolio included over 70 brand websites built on different technologies, hindering efficiency and scalability. This fragmented digital landscape led to slow product launches and difficulties managing digital assets, impacting the company’s market agility and growth potential.


To address these challenges, Purina collaborated with Nerdery. The goal was to consolidate these websites into a single user-friendly digital platform. Nerdery employed a multi-faceted approach, including application modernization, data security enhancement, systems integration, and agile coaching. Key elements of the project involved:

  • Replacing legacy solutions with a Drupal content management system supported by Acquia Cloud Site Factory
  • Improving consumer data organization
  • Advancing SEO strategies
  • Reducing technology and governance costs

This transformation enabled Purina’s marketing team to easily update sites and create new brand experiences without extensive development support.


As their primary customer engagement and marketing tool, it was critical to align Purina’s digital platform to meet consumer needs and grow their brand – so that’s what we did. Building the back-end functionality and streamlining the sites created a modern, central platform for Purina. Our application modernization increased the platform’s usability reducing its management costs, security risks, and time to market. For example, we reduced security scans by 95% while boosting their SEO rankings and data collection.

Partnership that magnifies your capabilities
