Optimizely and Blend

Our decade-plus history of helping projects create valuable digital experiences through Optimizely (formerly Episerver).

Partners since 2008

Optimizely (formerly Episerver) has a mission to make it easy for customers to create effective digital experiences for their customers in any channel on any device. It's a reason they are consistently named leaders in Gartner's Magic Quadrant — one of just five in 2021 — and a Leader in The Forrester Wave™ for Digital Experience Platforms (DXPs), Q3 2021.

Blend has been working with Optimizely and Episerver since 2008, and was named North American Partner of the Year in 2009. Blend is a Gold Solution Partner with four Optimizely certified developers on staff: Bob Davidson (Commerce Cloud), Chris Wahl (Content Cloud), John Pavek (Content Cloud), and Steph Uher (Content Cloud). That's 100% of our Optimizely developers.

Blend's work with Optimizely spans the entire scope of what you can do with a content management system:

  • Full-scope strategy-through-launch projects
  • Guidance and consulting for difficult installations
  • Migration into Optimizely from commercial and in-house content management systems
  • Strategy and design projects that understand how design works within Optimizely.

Here are some of the projects we've built or supported using the Optimizely CMS.

Partnering Toward a Fresh New Credit Union Design

A Fast Turnaround from On-Premise to Cloud

A migration from on-premise to cloud infrastructure in just a few days helped keep Florida's emergency communication on board.

Iterative Technical Planning: A Smoother Development Cycle

Gradual technical scoping leads to a more informed — and smoother running — project. Here’s how we did it.

A Development Collaboration Designed for Success

A partnership in coaching and co-development designed to bring a regional communications giant up to speed on Episerver.
