Prezi - Migration to django CMS

django CMS Prezi case study

Prezi makes it possible for anyone to make beautiful dynamic presentations with powerful built-in analytics to measure the results. Presentations are instantly more engaging with a fresh and innovative presentation experience.

The Requirements

The company has seen tremendous growth and, with over 100 million customers, needed a more scalable future-looking solution. Introducing the right CMS would allow the team to become more autonomous and work more effectively. For this project, Prezi assigned Divio the task of creating a new modern content management system using django CMS. The website migration to django CMS was made from their previous customized CMS solution.

Prezi runs django CMS on its own infrastructure and receives expert technical support and enterprise add-ons from Divio. django CMS multisite functionality allows Prezi to easily implement content and make use of the add-ons to tailor the website to their needs.

Migration to django

Prezi uses Django and Python extensively so using a Django-based CMS was a natural choice and facilitates integration with existing Prezi services and infrastructure.

Prezi decided upon the migration to django CMS primarily for ease-of-use in content creation and the add-on ecosystem that allows the Prezi team to customise and tailor to their needs with the confidence and backing of long-term support.

The main website features are:

  • Dynamic Designs
  • Fully responsive
  • Visual Representation
  • Plenty of interactive presentation template to engage users and professionals


The designers would prototype each page on a dedicated test server before the engineering team would do the CMS migration to the live production site and add any additional features.


As a central and tightly integrated part of the overall Prezi experience, Prezi runs django CMS upon its own infrastructure. With the tremendous growth Prezi has seen, the CMS migration allows the team to autonomously implement the content and work more effectively.


”django CMS with Divio Enterprise Services allows the Prezi team to focus more on what’s important: creating the best possible content and services for our users” - Jonathan Schwartz, Senior Product Manager, Prezi
