Abril Mídia is one of the largest media companies in Brazil. In 2011 it published 52 titles and is a leader in 22 out of 26 segments in which it operates. In the digital world, the big challenge Abril faces is deliver a large volume of information that it generates in a high diversity of digital channels, such as websites, mobile sites and TVs. The chosen solution was the building of a distributed platform, named Alexandria, that allows the content to be added and handled by separated information domains, implemented with REST constraints and with a hypermedia API, that is exposed to publishers and end users. This present chapter explains how we built the platform, and the lessons learned in this process.
