Progress announced the latest release of its digital experience management platform, Progress Sitefinity 12.

With this release, Progress has brought Sitefinity to the cloud and provides new levels of productivity, efficiency and faster time-to-market.

Progress Sitefinity, a Web Content Management (WCM), is now cloud-native and the only true WCM Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) on the market today. Redefining productivity, Sitefinity Cloud empowers organizational scale, eliminates the need for infrastructure management, and deeply integrates Microsoft Azure services allowing organizations to focus on their core business.

Offered as a hosted, managed service, Sitefinity Cloud brings to bear:

- Operational Efficiency: minimizes the burden on enterprise IT organizations and increases rapid time to market in support of business goals

- Simplified Management: uniquely leverages Azure DevOps lifecycle management tooling for high-visibility into state-of-the-art CI/CD processes required for today’s WCM environments

- Reduced Risk: autoscaling infrastructure backed by 99.9% service level availability and 24x7 support

- Proven Performance: provides best-in-class performance to visitors delivering up to 1200 pageviews per second, exceeding performance requirements needed to lead in today’s digital economy

Providing improved performance, enhanced content management capabilities and multiple productivity tools, Sitefinity 12 now delivers a completely revamped page management experience to ease implementation of day-to-day work and boost marketer productivity; improved synchronization of staging and live environments minimizing reliance on IT; and dynamic role-based forms to allow for improved capturing of profile data based on personas to enhance personalization efforts and unique interactions.

Developed and delivered by an organization entrenched in the app dev community, Progress understands the need for developer control and productivity. In addition to previously available capabilities such as high-extensibility, API-enabled for headless implementation, and central multisite and multilingual management, Progress Sitefinity 12 has taken an MVC-first approach, increasing time to market and enabling developers to easily address business demands and the use of popular third-party frameworks for quicker time-to-market for mobile-first web projects.

“As customers continue to evolve, their web content must focus on overall digital experiences, and Progress is uniquely positioned to give them what they need. With Progress Sitefinity, businesses can effectively enable creation, curation, conversion, insight and optimization,” said John Ainsworth, SVP, Core Products, Progress. “Sitefinity 12 brings to market a host of new capabilities to improve operational efficiency and better enable marketer productivity. In addition, with Sitefinity in the cloud, we’re enabling our customers to focus on their core businesses with the assurance of a full Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that minimizes complexity, reduces overhead and ensures maximum performance.”

Progress Sitefinity 12 is available today.
