WCMS 3.0 update

In 2019, Information Systems & Technology (IST) issued a request for proposal (RFP) for a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment to host the University’s next generation Waterloo Content Management System (WCMS) 3.0 ecosystem. We are pleased to announce that, earlier this year, the RFP was awarded to Pantheon.
