Functional range and applied analytics are just two out of many strengths of Sitecore that positioned it as a leader in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms.
Gartner defines a Digital Experience Platform (DXP) as "an integrated set of technologies, based on a common platform, that provides a broad range of audiences with consistent, secure, and personalized access to information and applications across many digital touchpoints."
Sitecore was recognized for its ability to execute and completeness of vision. Gartner highlighted functional breadth, applied analytics and interoperability as major strengths of the platform.
The company integrates its industry-leading content management and native digital marketing tools – including analytics, personalization, automation, machine learning, and omnichannel delivery – with a central repository of real-time, multichannel customer experience data. It collects real-time audience data and interactions from all campaigns, sources, and third-party systems in the Sitecore Experience Database (xDB). The interconnectedness of customer profile information throughout Sitecore gives organizations the ability to understand and respond in real time to the context of every customer interaction, regardless of where it happens.
With its web content management (WCM) heritage, Sitecore has established itself as a vendor with both a strategy to address various industries and a substantial array of horizontal DXP capabilities. Personalization, context awareness and analytics – including Sitecore Cortex machine learning - that generates real-time actionable insights for serving up the most relevant content to enhance the user's experience.
Gartner found that „customers have high regard for Sitecore's ability to exploit web analytics" and „value the platform's insights which are geared toward IT and business users alike."
Gartner's conclusions further validate Sitecore's vision not just to reach customers but understand and respond to their preferences through a single, integrated platform. It's a vision the company continues to deliver on, most recently with the Sitecore Experience Cloud.
Announced in October 2017, the Sitecore Experience Cloud continuously learns from each customer interaction so brands can deliver optimized real-time engagements – with content, customer insights, and commerce seamlessly integrated. Machine learning capabilities optimize audience targets and paths to conversion to power the most relevant conversations.
Built on the industry standard .NET Framework Sitecore as a robust platform leverages the full Microsoft technology stack. It offers customers the flexibility to connect with a range of applications and deploy either in the cloud (PaaS or IaaS), on- premises, or with a hybrid approach. Sitecore's „revamped, API-oriented architecture (in version 8), along with an increasing array of connectors, reportedly benefits organizations that previously spent considerable time working on custom integrations," Gartner found. The platform is ready for any channel with capabilities to support the web, social, and mobile channels of today alongside the emerging systems of tomorrow such as IoT, AR, and VR.
Besides Sitecore Experience Platform for digital marketing, Sitecore Experience Cloud also includes Sitecore Experience Manager web content platform and Sitecore Experience Commerce digital commerce platform. They are recently upgraded to Version 9 with a focus on smart personalization capabilities. Gartner pointed out that the integrated commerce functionality adds significant breadth to DXP offerings.
Sitecore is one of only four leaders in the Magic Quadrant. According to Gartner, they „have ample ability to support a variety of DXP use cases and consistently meet customers' needs over substantial periods. Leaders have delivered significant product innovation in pursuit of DXP requirements, and have been successful in selling to new customers across industries."
All these qualities and advantages state behind ALLWIN's decision to use Sitecore. Many successful projects and satisfied, long-termed partners prove that it was the right decision.
In this article, I will show you a solution for zero-downtime deployment in Azure Kubernetes Service. To add a context for it, first, we are going through some Deployment strategies. Then, I will choose the one that fits our needs. Some of them are supported by Kubernetes natively, some are not (yet). Next, I will outline a System overview by showing you the necessary Kubernetes objects in our AKS. The following part of my article presents our Azure DevOps deployment pipeline to you and briefly goes through the scripts and other settings that do the main thing: zero-downtime deployment. Finally, I am going to Wrap up the things
On one of our recent projects, we needed to implement an application with CRUD operations and some relateively simple integration by pushing content to two different systems, and monitor if they have been processed or not. We opted the Amazon Lambda route with Amazon DocumentDb, and the goal of this blog post is to summarize the developer experience that we faced during development of the project and comparing them to Azure Functions. As .NET developers, we faced that the developer experience is significantly better using the matching Azure technologies, and running an Amazon Lambda function locally might also have a steep learning curve for some people who are not familiar with Docker and containerization.
A vízesésmodell, agilis fejlesztés esetleg scrum vagy hibrid modell. Az informatikában, a szoftverfejlesztésben, ha projektekről beszélünk, ezek mindennapos fogalmak, hol egyiket, hol másikat alkalmazzuk egy-egy project kapcsán.
Ideje levonnunk az elmúlt időszak tanulságait, ráadásul addig amíg még friss az élmény. Ezért május végén beszélgetésre hívtuk Nagy Istvánt, az ALLWIN CEO-ját — szigorúan Microsoft Teamsen —, és arról faggattuk, milyen kihívásokkal kellett szembenéznie vezetőként, illetve hogyan kezelte a cég a hirtelen jött változásokat.
