On Thursday 18th January we heard how household-name brands like Harvard University Gazette, Google, The Times, PMC and more were using our favourite open source platform. These were stories straight from the people behind some of the most complex, interesting, and sophisticated enterprise WordPress builds on the internet today.
It was definitely one to remember – let’s dive back in to the WordPress for Enterprise event!

Just a few of WordPress for Enterprise’s best bits…
Harvard Gazette: WordPress in Higher Ed
One of the standout sessions from the WordPress for Enterprise event was from Harvard University’s Senior Associate Director of Content Strategy Aaron Baker: fresh from the launch of the brand new Harvard Gazette website, developed in partnership with Human Made, we heard how Harvard has found success in the open source world of WordPress.
“For the people who are actively building experiences and stories, either on the Gazette or curated experiences like we have on Harvard.edu/in-focus, they just think it’s such a time saver. It really speeds up the time to completion: it’s so clear to people what’s happening.”– Aaron Baker, Senior Associate Director of Content Strategy, Harvard University
The Times: the WordPress Editorial Experience
Luke Sikkema, Newsroom Product Editor at The Times and Sunday Times, and Lisa McCann, Head of Project Management at Big Bite, chatted through The Times’ journey of transforming and automating their value chain and newsroom editorial experience with WordPress. Spoiler: it now takes The Times up to 30% less time to publish a story and 64% fewer clicks to create content!
