Sitecore QuickStart Environments

Based on our past experience and from talking to other partners we have realized that partners waste a lot of time repeating the following two tasks:

1) Installing and Configuring Sitecore and various other modules over and over again.
2) Attempting to diagnose issues in Sitecore after applying custom modules and not knowing a what point things broke.

Some of this time could be saved using Sitecore QuickStart Environments.  A Sitecore QuickStart Environment is basic install of Sitecore and/or other modules configured to work with a specifically documented list of changes.  The shorter the list the better.

The idea is that you would start your project by logging into the portal and choose the best QuickStart Environment to meet your needs.  You drop that QuickStart Environment onto your servers make the small modifications and test it works.

Once you have it working in your environment they you can back it up and start adding custom code. If something fails, later you can compare it with the working environment.

Read Watch Create is currently building Sitecore QuickStart Environments for its own use and are working to build out a portal for use by other partners.

If you are interested in assisting in building them or are interested in subscribing to have access to them please email us at chris.williams@readwatchcreate.com
