siteore

1. Sitecore Experience accelerator (SxA) –
·         Predefined templates available for development.
·         Drag and drop tool box
·         Can be used with existing projects. 8.1 and 8.2
·         http://helix.sitecore.net/
·         Why PowerShell extensions required for SxA

2. Express migration tool
·         Razl – http://www.razl.net/ – is one migration tool. Now Sitecore came up with its own migration tool
·         Drawback – only 7.2 to 8.2
·         https://1drv.ms/f/s!AgelUxtURx3gl0PjesVyngmzalBs – Tool and guide line book

3. Publishing
·         Slowness issue resolved.
·         Publishing service introduced
·         This can be installed in separate box and even no license required
·         Normal and publishing service any one should be choose. Both will not work at a time
·         Only for 8.2

4. Continuous improvements – xAnalytics
·         Combination charts
·         Experience editor –
o   New feature – Usage count – how many times component added
o   General information dialog
·         Email experience manager – Spark post elite and Sitecore tied up for delivering emails. Spark post is a leading email delivery service with 100% success rate. In future it will support for SMS and push message

5. Connected customer data – xDB
·         More efficient now
·         Requires 8.1+
·         WFFM not in 8.2 – Drawback

6. Path analyzer – For marketers
Which pages were most visited
Can customize reports

Sitecore architectural changes
————————————————–
7.2 – Sitecore planned to freeze cms and experience
7.5 – xDB introduced
8.0 – application foundation and new applications
8.2 – focus more on SPEAK

Finally many new features without WFFM!
