KHS Musical Instruments is one of the world's top full-scale musical instrument manufacturers. KHS has many brands of instruments including Jupiter, Mapex, Hercules, Walden, Majestic and Altus. Through extensive market research, KHS identified an opening in the market of drum kits and developed a plan to allow consumers to build and purchase custom configurations through their Mapex brand. They needed a web application that would allow users to easily configure their own kits by choosing from a large selection of drum types, sizes, and finishes.
Bit-Wizards developed a solution using Kentico CMS 6.0 as the content management system for this project. Kentico provided the authentication mechanism, data management interface and integration with Windows Azure and SQL Azure, all necessary for the high availability and high performance requirements of the project. Kentico was also the perfect choice to solve the need for KHS to be able to fully manage the application and be self-sufficient after the project completion.
