SKILLS & TRICKS
October 16th - 19th
Yes guys i got a chance to visit Las Vegas and trust me it was not for any of the reasons usually people associate this city with. For me it was more like "What Happens in Vegas, stay with you forever". I had a wonderful time, learning, socializing and dreaming - yeah dreaming about possibilities of customer experience with Sitecore 9.
Below is a brief of items which i learned and though i wanted to attend all the sessions, time was not enough with some session happening at the same time.
Before i go out to share the technical stuff, i would like to take this opportunity to thank a couple of people who really helped me learn new concepts about Sitecore.
As usual I am late, I think I am getting used to it with updates and news flowing in from all directions – it’s hard to keep a track of stuff and post about it. Just came back after a week of learning from Sitecore Symposium in Las Vegas and thought about writing something on it, opened the To Do App and found that I need to first finish this piece before I jump on Sitecore.
Microsoft Ignite happened last month with a lot of WOW factor and I can also see some IT Pros even questioning the Wow now, particularly the guys still using SharePoint on Premise. It’s common to have two sides, the first is always about how cool it is and this will be a game changer but sadly the second is more of complains and the learning curve about how to get it right under the current circumstances. (It’s a pain to adjust business processes with updates if not properly planned and thought)
Let’s jump in to what was shared with us during the SharePoint Ignite 2017 sessions and try to constructively look at each one of them.
Since the dawn of the digital era, a company that doesn’t have its own website, is well…not considered a ‘real’ company these days. It’s become a given among consumers that a legitimate business has a website. However, there’s a huge distinction between run-of-the-mill sites and the digital experience we all talk about. And the distinction lies in the detail. As a client, you need to pause and ask yourself: what are you looking to achieve from your website and can you invest the attention, time and budget needed to meet your goal? Furthermore, once you have launched your new site, can you adequately manage the influx of new customers that come as a result of the site?
