In my previous blogpost, I explored the possibilities of marrying the descriptions of ADF pipelines and its generated ARM templates and the Terraform scripts that can describe the other parts of the cloud infrastructure.
In 2022 fall, ChatGPT has been released, which was one of the biggest milestone in the generative AI space. Huge companies started to integrate with OpenAI really fast – such as Microsoft, Bing Search has integrated a Bing Chat which is using OpenAI APIs in the background. This huge hype and consume of ChatGPT was an eye-opener, the time of using AI in our daily life as human beings has come.
With the rise of headless systems, during the recent years, traditional CMS and traditional e-commerce vendors extended their existing products with (mostly) RESTful API endpoints to able to connect different head applications. This article will show an example of how a CMS and an e-commerce system can be connected, to solve the limited content editing options in an e-commerce system.
What is Azure Data Factory? Azure Data Factory, or simply ADF is Microsoft’s solution for data integration in the cloud. It is a fully managed, serverless service having around 90 different protocols that can use as dataset (both for input and output). Some of them are generic like HTTP, ODBC, File system, and there are specific like Jira, Magneto, or ServiceNow, besides a lot of standard Azure-related services like Blob storage, Azure SQL, or Azure Cosmos DB.
As a company comprised of healthcare clinicians, our primary motivation is improving the patient experience. In radiation oncology, we want to ensure cancer treatments go as smoothly as possible, focusing on accuracy, efficiency, and the provision of patient-centered care. In partnership with ALLWIN, our SaaS solutions break down healthcare workflow and data silos to create a seamless experience. By placing the broader electronic medical record (EMR) system at the center of our architecture, Fuse eliminates duplicative and inefficient efforts to enable a future where oncology care moves at the speed of patients.
Have you ever wondered, what are these new products released by Sitecore in the last few years? Maybe you’ve heard about products like Content Hub One, Sitecore Search, Order Cloud, or XM Cloud? If so, then this post is for you.
It is a common problem that companies hesitate to work with outsourced IT partners. This blog will discuss why so many companies are afraid of selecting an outsourced IT partner and some of the ways they can overcome this problem.
Christmas is just around the corner, and I wanted to show you something that is a specialty on this blog: contributing to open-source projects and, this case, to the official ASP.NET Core repository. As I had recognized, this is really popular around the holidays (by looking at the issue comments and commits of open-source libraries), as probably most people have some free time from work to do something for the greater good. Based on this article, this is indeed a real thing.
Imagine that you’re a software development company that started to work with British and North American companies a long time ago, preferring AWS as their cloud provider. So, you have already picked up a significant amount of knowledge and experience about AWS. Then, some of your clients’ recent developments required some Azure and Microsoft API-related knowledge as well to achieve their goals. Let’s review our two recent case studies where having a partner experienced in Azure turned out to be beneficial and efficient for our client.
You are developing a product, but you're short on some developers to meet the deadlines. Or your business has its own IT team, but you're missing some experts for your unique project. You need to invest in some development but also save some money. We understand your struggle.
If you need a web portal and start searching on the Internet for the best solution for your company, it is easy to get lost in the wealth of information. And at first glance, it is not clear what the difference between the different solutions is.
Sitecore JSS and Sitecore Headless is out for a few years now but we started our first headless project last year. Our chosen stack was Sitecore Headless 10.2 with Next.js SDK (19.0.0) using Server-Side Rendering (SSR). I would like to talk about 2 main topics in this post. The first one is how the development processes are changed because of the changed tech stack. The second part is about the technical challenges we met during the implementation.
Serverless was at its 2nd major version when we were building the project and their slogan was that you can easily deploy your application with the framework to most cloud platforms – including AWS, Azure and GCP.
Budapest, Hungary —February 1, 2022 —ALLWIN, a leading custom software development company today announced that Tamás Tárnok, Senior Software Developer at Allwin, has been named a Most Valuable Professional (MVP) in the Technology category by Sitecore®, the global leader in digital experience management software. Tamás Tárnok was one of only 141 Technology MVPs worldwide to be named a Sitecore MVP this year. This is the 5th consecutive year Tamás has been recognized as a Sitecore MVP.
On one of our recent projects, we needed to implement an application with CRUD operations and some relateively simple integration by pushing content to two different systems, and monitor if they have been processed or not. We opted the Amazon Lambda route with Amazon DocumentDb, and the goal of this blog post is to summarize the developer experience that we faced during development of the project and comparing them to Azure Functions. As .NET developers, we faced that the developer experience is significantly better using the matching Azure technologies, and running an Amazon Lambda function locally might also have a steep learning curve for some people who are not familiar with Docker and containerization.
Workforce diversity is necessary for business. Teams made up of people with greater individual differences between each other leads to higher productivity and better performance. Despite statistics showing how GDP will increase by an average of 35%with a closed gender pay gap, women in tech remain at a disadvantage over men. Where women take up less than 10% of C-Suite positionsat tech firms, there’s plenty of room to promote representation, leadership and inclusion of women at all levels –from CTO to administrator. And when it is, there is no doubt that a more motivated and higher-performing workforce will emerge.
IT outsourcing is very popular nowadays due to the fact that it has a lot of pros from a business perspective. There are a couple of blog posts written on this topic. You can take a look at one of them here. This post is about showing what makes an outsourcing partnership tempting for a developer – and at the end of the day, it is a win-win situation when both you and your developers are happy.
Last year Sitecore (the company) acquired several API-first, cloud-based products. With these acquisitions, Sitecore has been reacting to the trend of Headless CMS (Content Management System) and Content as a Service (CAAS). In this blog post, I will lead you through the new and old Sitecore products and then try to speculate the Sitecore product roadmap and how it affects the customer and partner base of Sitecore.
Agile software development is pretty popular nowadays, but it can be frustrating for people in various roles working on the project. Here are a couple of notes on the experience that we faced on recent projects.
In the modern world, we all like automating repeatable tasks; one of them is the continuous delivery of Sitecore solutions. This post will show you a generic checklist about what to consider when building your Sitecore deployment pipeline for CM and CD servers.
In this article, I will show you a solution for zero-downtime deployment in Azure Kubernetes Service. To add a context for it, first, we are going through some Deployment strategies. Then, I will choose the one that fits our needs. Some of them are supported by Kubernetes natively, some are not (yet). Next, I will outline a System overview by showing you the necessary Kubernetes objects in our AKS. The following part of my article presents our Azure DevOps deployment pipeline to you and briefly goes through the scripts and other settings that do the main thing: zero-downtime deployment. Finally, I am going to Wrap up the things
By now, you might have been introduced to the term "digital transformation." But what does that mean? For those who still don't have a clear picture, generally speaking, digital transformation is how businesses integrate digital technology into their work, thus changing their business processes, activities, models, and customer relations.
