The recordings of the SUGCON event are now available including the keynote that Jason and I delivered on Friday morning.

Session outline

Composable DXP is all the rage, but what if you already have a platform installation with years of investment into getting it just how you like? How do you gradually move your architecture over to something that is MACH and headless? Do you need a full rebuild? Do you need Next.js or not? Where does content go now? What are the benefits and downsides?

Pieter Brinkman (@pieterbrink123) and Jason St-Cyr (@StCyrThoughts) take an overview of a few XM and XP scenarios and how you can gradually migrate to a composable architecture, along with some of the advantages and disadvantages of different options.

Architecture guide to migrate from On-prem/PaaS to SaaS

Composable DXP is all the rage. Why is the industry moving towards SaaS and Composable architecture? What are the benefits of composable for customers? And is composable for everyone. These are all questions that are addressed in the Architecture guide to SaaS video.

Next to that we’re also addressing that the actual migration. What if you already have a platform installation with years of investment into getting it just how you like? How do you gradually move your architecture over to something that is MACH and headless? Do you need a full rebuild?

Sitecore Symposium: What’s new in Sitecore Land (9.3)

pieter session Symposium sitecore 2019

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.
