What a Good Start of the year 2018 with Sitecore 9







Excited to share this great information,  Go live with Sitecore 9 update1 on Azure PaaS.

We dared to opt the decision to go with Sitecore9 which is very new release and trust me it was not the easy decision to convey to the stake holders of the business to implement Sitecore 9 because the version is fairly very new  it was not the straight forward implementation, lots of new feature, which we had to explored, and researched including Bug Fixes, Support from Sitecore, patches etc. 

Also, Not too much documentation available in the market yet as the product is very new, but we took this implementation as an opportunity to implement with all innovative technology stack with Sitecore, as below:

  • Sitecore9
  • Azure PaaS
  • Sitecore 9 Forms
  • SXA 1.6
  • xConnect
  • Unicorn
  • MVC 5
  • Glass Mapper
  • bootstrap 4
  • CSS 3
  • HTML 5


I can say this was one of my challenging and interesting project with Sitecore 9 with lots of learning in the Sitecore9 and Azure PaaS configuration as below:

  • Sitecore 9 Forms Customization - Custom Server Validation, code injection
  • Sitecore xConnect - Customization 
  • Sitecore SXA 1.6 - Great learning as this is the first project on SXA
  • Azure DDoS Protection
  • Azure CDN Configuration - Standard Verizon
  • Azure Custom Binding and SSL Configuration
  • Azure Dynatrace configuration



Again, thanks to the development team and Sitecore product team specially Nilesh Thakkar who made this journey possible for their extended support in this project.
