Content Architects was part of Storage Architects BV. In 2007, Storage Architects was assigned to develop an integrated e-commerce and content management platform that could be used internationally. They have decided to choose hybris. Because of the growth in the number of projects in early 2009 they decided to change the content-related activities to a special business unit called Content Architects.
