The SUGCON Europe 2019 I attended in London on April 4-5 was an exciting and informative event that gave me a chance to network with the best representatives of the Sitecore community and to upgrade my skills. Today, I’m happy to share the latest news from the conference about Sitecore CMS version 9.2, which is expected to be released in the coming months.
On March 2, the SaM Solutions team got their first Sitecore Hackathon experience, and we’re off to a great start! The team of “Brave Sitecorians” — Raman Khalupau, Andrei Shynkarenka and me, Vadzim Papko, — has successfully met the challenge, which resulted in the creation of an efficient module that enhances content management.
Why do thousands of companies entrust SAP with their digital commerce? Let’s figure it out.
Reliable connections between customers and sales officers are key to a successful business. The most powerful driver allowing salespeople to increase client loyalty is a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system.
Online businesses have become a normal practice today because they are beneficial both for clients and businesses. Communication channels are the main tools in the eCommerce industry. Earlier, it was a must to have a telephone and a website; then companies moved to mobile apps and messengers. But there’s always room for improvement, so the most recent trend is implementing AI-based chatbots for business.
At the moment, there are more than 2,500 web content management systems available in the market. Most of these CMS platforms provide a range of features that allow companies to develop high-performance websites with dynamic content and a user-friendly interface. That’s why it may be a real challenge to choose the best web content management system suitable for your marketing strategy.
Electronic commerce or eCommerce is becoming the most popular way of trading in today’s marketplace. Users prefer online purchasing because it has no time or distance barriers, unlike a traditional store. Another reason is the competitive price that most eCommerce platforms offer. That’s why an online presence is a must for businesses of any type, from small consumer-based retail shops to large corporations.
The way people shop now is changing drastically. Due to the expansion of eCommerce, retail is undergoing tremendous shifts, as many people prefer online shopping to visiting a physical store. Worldwide eCommerce sales are predicted to increase threefold, from $1.3 trillion in 2014 to $4.5 trillion in 2021.
A long-time leader of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management, Sitecore CMS has already won over more than 111,000 businesses worldwide. It provides outstanding personalization and omni-channel capabilities together with powerful management of multilingual content. All of it allows creating robust websites that enable an advanced marketing and sales experience.
Online trade has been driving out traditional commerce that has historically relied on brick-and-mortar shops and stores. Indeed, between 2014 and now, eCommerce has been showing a tremendous growth of 107%. The tendency is predicted to continue, with an approximate annual 30-percent increase. That makes trade companies choose proper eCommerce solutions that streamline their sales, improve customer interaction and enhance business efficiency.
