During the last 7 months, I had a side job next to my Technical Marketing Job. I was asked to create the positioning and messaging to support our Managed Cloud offering as interim Product Marketing Director Managed Cloud at Sitecore. Luckily I could pull this off because of two reasons. 1) I have amazing self-steering teams within Technical Marketing. 2) A day has 24 hours.
The job is now done, and I would like to share some knowledge about Sitecore Managed Cloud. Starting with sharing the recording of my SUGMEA presentation on Managed Cloud.
In this session, I will provide an introduction to Sitecore Managed Cloud. Highlighting the benefits of Manage Cloud, and how Managed Cloud compares to our other hosting options. Including:
Sitecore flexible hosting options
What is Sitecore Managed Cloud?
Benefits of Sitecore Managed Cloud
The efforts of hosting
Sitecore Managed Cloud critical success factors
Why Sitecore Managed Cloud for the CMO, CIO, and infrastructure teams?
You can find the recording on Vimeo or embedded below.
Another great event comes to an end with Sitecore Symposium 2019. Almost 3.000 attendees gathered to learn more about Sitecore’s products, vision and roadmap.
For me this years Sitecore Symposium highlights the announcement that SaaS is coming and a new Machine Learning Service for auto personalization. Next to keynotes from Sitecore’s own Mark Frost, Paige O’Neill and Desta Price.
And let’s not forget about the legendary keynote from Earvin “Magic” Johnson, which I also had the pleasure to meet.
This year it was -again- my honor to announce and reveal more details about our upcoming release of Sitecore 9.3.
Since the presentation I’ve received lots of requests for slides, more info and speaker engagements. As a start the slides are now available on Notists.
Notists also include my speaker schedule as I’m planned to deliver the presentation again in London (14 November) and Amsterdam (10 December). Feel free to reach out to me if you want to invite me to speak at your event.
Last month we hosted the very successful Sitecore User Group Conference 2019 (SUGCON) in India, this was our second SUGCON India. The event has been very successful in many ways and I want to share my view on the event.
First the number; I’m very happy to share that we had nearly 300 attendees during SUGCONIndia. During the days we had more than 35 sessions presented. We had over the 100 attendees across our three workshops; Commerce, SxA and JSS- during the pre-conference workshop day. We also managed to host a Sitecore certification opportunity for more than 70 developers.
I just returned home from a great Sitecore Symposium and an MVP summit. I had the honors to present the Overview of 9.1 together with Mark Groves, Senior Director Product Management. During the days that followed I received a lot of requests to share the deck and the details. To address these questions I started a blog series on our 9.1 release.
So, version 9.1 has a lot of exciting innovation and value that will help our customers get to market faster, and also ongoing refinements and enhancements to existing functionality.
Sitecore’s first major User Group conference in Asia, was held in Bangalore, India, on May 16-17 2018. Originally the event was intended to accommodate 150 people, but interest exceeded expectations and the event reached more than 200 attendees.
