Sitecore Symposium 2019

Unfortunately this year I have not eXperienced Sitecore Symposium in person but I have done my best to follow all the news via Twitter and here there is my take away of the big news announced and the take away for everybody who works with Sitecore…

  1. Sitecore will finally release a SAAS version in Summer 2020

This is a big change for Sitecore that will be available on-premise, PAAS on Azure, SAAS and probably in the future hosted in a container/Docker… expectations for Sitecore SAAS are very high… will I stop writing Power shell, install and upgrade Sitecore? time will tell…
