Sitecore 9.1 initial release – what is new!

In the case you did not know, Sitecore 9.1 initial version has just been released, you can download it from:

https://dev.sitecore.net/Downloads/Sitecore_Experience_Platform/91/Sitecore_Experience_Platform_91_Initial_Release.aspx

and that’s what you need to know to consider upgrading to this version:

Key improvements:

  • Performance improvements (especially cold start-up time of CMS)
  • Bringing back support for Mongo to store Analytics
  • SIF 2.0 in the case you were not happy with the first version of SIF 🙂
  • Identity server (major internal architectural change across Sitecore products)
  • Cortex (Machine learning for content and analytics)
  • Content Tagging
  • Personalisation suggestions (still basic one, but it helps marketeer to understand the best way to personalise and optimise content to drive conversion)
  • JSS is finally with us 🙂
  • Generic SXA improvements
  • Native support to index binary files such as PDF (finally!!!!)
  • support for Solr 7.2.1

 

I have just installed it and it is hard to say my favorite one, but if I have to pick one, is certainly around CORTEX feature and what will allow developers and marketers to achieve…  I have also heard very positive feedbacks on performances improvements and that’s good to see the product evolving in the right direction…
