Transitioning to Optimizely SaaS Core: Enhancing My Digital Presence

Previously, The firt iteration of my site used to be on Wordpress for managing my content and delivering my site.  I then moved to a statistically generated site using Hugo. My content was then moved to Markdown files saved as part of the site code repository.  Wanting to explore different tools and technologies, I then made the switch to a statically generated site using Vitepress.

However, when I got the opportunity to access Optimizely's SaaS offering as an OMVP, I knew it was time for annoter transition. The SaaS Core is a fully managed version of Optimizely's Content Management System (CMS), providing the latest updates and cutting-edge APIs. It allows for limitless digital creativity and streamlined processes, especially for those looking to build headless solutions.

By adopting this new offering, I have gained access to advanced features and improved flexibility in creating and managing my website. Overall, the transition to Optimizely SaaS Core has been a positive step towards enhancing my digital presence.
