What is JAMstack and the value prop of "Uniform for Sitecore"

JAMstack is a modern approach to web architecture that leverages the best of the modern web: CDNs, front-end frameworks, static site generators and APIs

"Uniform for Sitecore" makes Sitecore compatible with JAMstack, without losing any of the features that make Sitecore compelling to marketers:

  • - content authoring experience (in-line editing and previews)
  • - visitor tracking
  • - personalization

Works with practically any version of Sitecore.

From Sitecore 8.2 all the way to the latest version of Sitecore 9.
Any presentation technology - MVC, with or without SXA, with or without JSS.

We call it... the "Magic Button"

Adopting JAMstack usually means re-platforming from your existing CMS or at the minimum rebuilding the whole front-end tier.

With Uniform, you don't have to do that.

That's why we build and MVC adapter allowing you to reuse the existing MVC presentation component in JAMstack context. This means that you can start your JAMstack journey now.

Key benefits of "Uniform for Sitecore" on Netlify

1. Achieve the fastest possible performance

JAMstack architecture means there is no need for the roundtrip to the Sitecore delivery server during page rendering - all pages are baked build-time, so your visitors don't have to pay the cost. The "A" in JAMstack stands for APIs, allowing you to pull more data from Sitecore and other origins dynamically, allowing to build engaging web experiences without compromising on performance.

2. Optimize your infrastructure footprint

Shifting expensive page baking from runtime to build time means that you can greatly reduce the footprint of your on-premise or Platform-as-a-Service infrastructure and optimize it to handle dynamic requests.

3. Where traffic bursts meet a peace of mind

No matter where you deploy your Sitecore infrastructure, getting scaling done right is hard. Getting predictable spend is even tougher. Address the challenges of auto-scaling head on by scaling together with the elasticity of global multi-cloud Application Delivery Network that Netlify is offering.
