Khoros is the enterprise-grade community platform

The platform offers extensive customization so anything you think of it is most likely possible. Customization like this does require developer support however but once engaged they will be able to leverage quality documentation and an active customer community (Khoros Atlas) that can help them accomplish their tasks.

In terms of handling crisis or high-volume events, I have experienced a few of these using this platform and each time Community remained stable and snappy.

I mentioned this earlier but this platform is definitely enterprise-grade, secure, and scalable. It can handle millions of page views without degrading response times. It can also "scale" in terms of supporting a variety of business use cases through configuring the system and features to meet a variety of needs.

Our Khoros community is hosted in AWS in multiple nodes, and we know that as demand increases this can scale. Khoros manages all of this for us and delivers solid uptime. The community platform is extensible and we can customize the experience in many ways. For example, we used bulk data transactions and our own SAS analytics to build a topic recommendation engine, which we plugged into the community visitor experience using our own services and APIs.

Our community has multiplied in size many times over since we first started using Khoros Community. Between our own ongoing education, expanding the application of Community, and development of the product, we are always discovering new ways to utilize the software. We've never once felt like we were outpacing the capability of our software.
