Now the last of the 3 strategy pillars is enhancements and I want to show you how 9.2 will make day-to-day working with Sitecore a lot more comfortable.
You can see a true change in Sitecore as a company, we never have been so focused in enhancing the product. Focusing on making the platform work better for you by fixing bugs and enhancing existing features.
Our work on enhancing our platform is guided by the feedback we get from our customers, partners and analysts. You are not shy to tell us what is missing and what we can improve. We are listening and documenting everything we hear and see.
We have been working hard to enhance the platform as a whole, and we’ve made some great improvements in 9.2. We’re including over 220 customer fixes, and have also implemented over 150 customer requests! We have fixed 80 issues across multiple functionalities including Content Search, Publishing, Indexing, Caching and Security. So that goes to show that we are listening!
In a previous blog post I wrote about how the Sitecore strategy has three investment pillars and how this impacts your day-to-day job as a developer. We already covered innovation, let’s dive into the efficiency that you can get with our upcoming Time to Market improvements.
Sitecore 9.2 contains a number of efficiency improvements, but as with the previous section I’ve picked 3 key areas that will help you do your job more efficient and increase the time-to-market for our shared customers. Features that help you get up and running faster, features that will improve standardization between different implementations and features that will help the marketers in their day-to-day job.
Every release contains several innovations. I want to focus on 3 innovations for different target audiences. I will cover something for the front-end developers, something for the back-end developers, and finally something for anyone who regularly uses the Sitecore editing tools.
At Sitecore we have three 3 pillars in our continuous R&D investment strategy: Innovation, Time to Market and Enhancements.
While preparing the keynotes for the SUGCON conferences in Europe and India I wanted to use these strategic pillars since they define how we work as a company. Since I already talked about this during Sitecore Symposium in 2018 I wanted to take a different approach. This time, knowing that SUGCON is a developer event, I started brainstorming on how our pillars impact you as a developer. In this article I would like to share my thoughts and outcomes on how the strategic pillars have affect on your day-to-day job.
