Why is this important?

Optimizely Content Management Version 12 and B2C Commerce Version 14 is our first version built on ASP.NET Core – a huge step for our customers and developers alike. Our newest version represents our most significant update in the underlying code foundation that we build our CMS and Commerce engines on.

What does this mean for me?

As a Marketer

Our newest version of CMS will represent:

  • Faster page rendering times
  • A framework for Optimizely to build our CMS admin application on into the future for faster and more efficient authoring of content
  • The framework for all our future development so that you can get our latest and greatest features

As a Developer

Our newest version of CMS will represent:

  • A brand new code foundation built on the most up-to-date standards in development
  • Performance improvement across the board, up to 1200% in certain parts, by just upgrading
  • Cross platform compatibility, meaning it can now run on Windows, Linux, and MacOS
  • Faster build and start up time
  • Improved headless support


Take a look at some of the numbers* we're seeing!

*These are preliminary results of internal testing based upon CMS 12, Commerce 14, and the Foundation implementation. We intend to publish our methodology so partners and customers can do their own performance testing validation.
