SKILLS & TRICKS
Sadly choosing a CMS platform is a dilemma and even the very best in the industry end up arguing with each other on the pros and cons. This post is for those who are going through this phase and are finding it difficult to make up their mind on which platform would be best suitable for them.
What the hell is a CMS
Instead of getting in to historical facts and figures, lets just put this in simple words.
A content management system (CMS) is an interface that allows users to create and manage the content of their websites. Whereas CMS’s started out as simple software to publish content online, they have grown to become core technology platforms that support cross-organisational goals and objectives, from marketing to sales.
Choosing a CMS
The CMS you choose is closely linked to your business goals and the success of your organisation. Your website is your digital estate: the online representation of your brand, your benchmark against competitors and a key driver of sales. Additionally, your website will be the destination for your marketing efforts, and a core hub of your operations.
When it comes to CMS platforms, paying more doesn’t necessarily mean better. To pick a CMS that you can rely on and is right for your business needs, a considered evaluation of features and functionality requirements is crucial.

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.
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?
