We’ve made major behind-the-scenes improvements for a faster and more intuitive Company Store platform. You’ll soon notice that our Bright Sites Admin looks different – yet, the differences go beyond a mere facelift. Essentially, the Bright Sites New Admin has been rebuilt at the core to perform more efficiently and meet user needs more effectively today and sustain long-term growth.
Forewarning: We’re going to drop in a little bit of tech speak thanks to our awesome development and tech teams to explain the fundamentals of the transformation. Essentially, we transitioned the architecture of our platform from monolithic (built as one large unit) to microservices (built as smaller, independent units) – which is what the Googles, Netflixes and Amazons of today’s world operate on. Monolithic platforms are more time-consuming to produce and maintain and overall less adaptable in the long-run.
On the contrary, service-based technology has many lean benefits:
- Agility – Functionality is broken down to the most basic level, eliminating a cumbersome update process.
- Efficiency – The reduced infrastructure and resources required revs up the platform’s speed.
- Resiliency – By spreading functionality across multiple services, the application is less susceptible to a single point of failure, resulting in less downtime and more reliability.
In short, the microservice approach leads to a more modern, business capability-focused application – that sounds pretty desirable, right?
Strengthening the foundation of our platform makes everything else about the platform better, and therefore, makes YOUR Company Store building experience better, faster and easier. After all, you’re managing stores for the top leading brands in the world. Shouldn’t your platform be as intuitive, streamlined and scalable as possible?
Better yet, you can experience the power of the New Bright Stores Admin’s stronger foundation before it goes live!
