Welcome back to season 2 of Happy Porch Radio.

As you know season 2 is all about Umbraco and one of the most common requests we have had is for interesting case studies or stories from Umbraco “in the wild”. And we have a great example coming up for you.

On this episode, I am absolutely delighted to introduce Dann Sheridan. Dann is responsible for e-commerce in a global division of a large multi-national – in fact the 3rd largest information services company in the world.

Dann shares the story of their multi-year project to pull a complex and disparate collection of technologies across the globe into a common digital marketing and sales solution – a solution that depends upon Umbraco – and specifically Umbraco cloud.
