In 2004, the European Parliament used version 4 of Jahia’s CMS, which supported many of the
Parliament’s websites. By 2016, 80 Jahia projects were in production on the platform.
The Parliament wanted to strengthen its capacity to exchange information between its sites and, in particular, to aggregate news items published on the various sites of the Directorates-General.
Additionally, there was a significant need for personalization on the European Parliament’s intranet. The hope was to be able to browse with a variety of user profiles (MEPs, assistants, external staff or members of other institutions, etc.).
“We needed to be able to access the site’s information through a range of profiles in order to provide a more relevant navigation for everyone...such as their calendar, favorite applications, bookmarks to be notified when a page is updated, and so on.”
