As the nation’s leading source of cancer information and support, the national Cancer Council website serves a critical public need.
Cancer Council Australia (CCA) had not updated its website since 2012. As a result, its presentation, content and structure were outdated and in need of a major overhaul. With an ageing CMS, security, stability and ease of maintenance had also become problematic.
Rather than attempting to conduct a ‘bandaid fix’ of the existing site, CCA decided to start afresh, switching platforms and completely rebuilding the site. As well as being fast, robust and secure, the new site needed to be highly optimised for search, as the bulk of CCA’s website traffic comes via Google from people looking to find information about their cancer journey.
While the project was predominantly driven and implemented in-house, CCA engaged Luminary in an advisory capacity, to guide and support its internal team. Luminary augmented the CCA website team with specialist services around agile consultancy, UX and design, content modelling, front end development, DevOps, QA, Kentico Kontent and Microsoft Azure.
