Al Jazeera Media Network is a global provider in news and media broadcasting. It distributes content in multiple languages, genres, and formats on a wide range of conventional and digital platforms, connected devices, and via commercial partners.
In its 20th year, Al Jazeera is experiencing tremendous expansion of its operations across all distribution channels and platforms. The network partnered with Phase2 to couple its growth with a number of strategic technology initiatives with the goal of being recognized as the world’s leading and most trusted media network, reaching and informing people no matter who or where they are.
Phase2 built a world-class Drupal 8 platform to unify Al Jazeera’s suite of digital publishing sites. The CMS plays a central role as their main tool for content production, while establishing a central code base for innovation and standardizing editorial workflow processes across the network.

As a global media network, Al Jazeera knew it was crucial to prioritize internationalization, future growth, and flexibility in its technology strategy. As the media landscape continues to evolve, it will be important for Al Jazeera to quickly pivot to capitalize on digital trends like omni-channel.
The platform enhances agility, accessibility, collaboration, and productivity for editors. Equally important, Al Jazeera achieved better governance and security of more diverse, consumer-friendly content.
Al Jazeera is now one step closer to its digital vision: increasing growth, engagement, and retention of content across all channels, devices, and users with a dynamic, unified enterprise platform.
