Get your news out super fast

The media business never sleeps. Timing is everything in getting your breaking news to the right audiences. MBC, the largest broadcaster in the Middle East, relies on Magnolia to allow its 100 editorial staff to create and update content quickly and smoothly. Building an efficient media machine that serves great content 24/7, MBC also cut 75% in support costs with Magnolia.


Magnolia enabled us to create a lean article publishing machine across our multiple channels, allowing us to publish and update content quickly and efficiently. Our entertainment portal has microsites for every channel and program, and now we can create them in only 10% of the time it took before.

Reach your readers on any channel

The velocity at which we consume digital news is pushing media companies to continuously evolve the range of their offers. Voetbal International, the oldest football magazine in the Netherlands, uses Magnolia in a hybrid headless fashion which optimizes today's operations and gives freedom for the future. All content is structured in a way that makes it completely re-usable across all owned channels and beyond to third parties.

Al Arabiya, the leading 24-hour news channel in the Arab world, relies on Magnolia to serve its growing online audience up to 70 million page views per month, with up to 20,000 concurrent visitors at any one time. Thanks to Magnolia, it can now publish news in less than three minutes, without compromising on security or stability.

Technology that gives you an edge

Scale without limits

Magnolia allows for flexible scalability for new channels, peak loads or global rollout. Maintain stability and broaden your scale and agility with Magnolia Cloud, our platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering.

Rock-solid security

Magnolia's role-based security, single sign-on (SSO) and decoupled author and public servers provide you with the highest levels of security and reliability. Not a single penetration test failed, ever. 

Increase speed to market

Magnolia offers unparalleled speed of development to give you freedom to innovate. Its modular architecture lets your teams work in parallel and build on modern frontend technologies they already know.


Our previous system was vulnerable: we were struggling to maintain an in-house code base that had been developed by different people over a period of five years. With Magnolia we have clean, open code that is supported by the vendor. They handle the security threats.
