May 2018 Updates
More analytics tips, a great new site, faster hosting, and a fond farewell
Please note: Our office will be closed on Monday, May 28th, in observance of Memorial Day—but as always, we’ll help with urgent tickets right away. We’ll respond to all other new tickets on Tuesday, May 29th.
Also, with the out-of-cycle security update last week and the planned hosting upgrades, we will not have a standard monthly release for May. In June we’ll resume business-as-usual, with the update occurring on the first Wednesday of the month.
In this issue:
Last summer we hosted an introductory webinar to walk through the basics of Google Analytics and show you a few of the things we look at when we evaluate a website. Since then we’ve gotten a lot of feedback from clients interested in learning more about Google Analytics tools and advanced features, so this time around we focused on how you can create custom reports and dashboards for your organization.
If you’re just catching up, you’re welcome to watch a recording of our earlier webinar, Intro to Google Analytics to learn the basics.
Furthering Chiropractic Care in California
California Chiropractic Association enhances their identity and member experience with their new website
Established in 1928, the California Chiropractic Association (Cal Chiro) is a nonprofit organization comprised of chiropractic doctors and allied industries dedicated to furthering chiropractic care in California.
Specifically, Cal Chiro helps chiropractors by providing a place to find community, training, certification, advocacy, valuable industry resources and the overall support needed to run successful practices and offer their patients outstanding care.
Now that your sites collectively serve millions of visitors per month, we are pleased to announce that we are scaling up our infrastructure and will be transitioning to a powerful new hosting platform that is 2-3x faster for administrators and lightning-fast for end-users worldwide.
The new container-based hosting model will leverage Amazon Web Services, allowing for complete decentralization and redundancy. It is part of an infrastructure modernization and overhaul that has been over a year in the making. The first batch of sites is scheduled for migration mid-May.
Our team may be contacting you to make changes to your DNS records in preparation for the migration in the coming months.
After seven years with Digital Deployment, Haley will be moving on to a new opportunity. Besides keeping things running smoothly as our project manager, playing calendar Tetris, and sending countless communications, Haley has been most appreciated for her team-building abilities. She is the spirit that brings costume contests, client celebrations, and customized confetti to celebrate launches. Haley’s departure will not only mark the loss of a capable colleague, but it will leave us missing all the joy and excitement she brings to the office and to all of our projects.
For a company that prides itself on empowering communication and connecting communities, we are hard-pressed to find someone who has embodied these values better than Haley, and we thank her for our outstanding service to our community of clients.
