Dream. Dare. Do – that is Suyati’s work principle in a nutshell.
Enterprise application development is a topic that has been gaining more prominence as a key area of discussion. Perhaps the most common challenge faced by enterprise developers today is the need to enable seamless communication between business and development for ultimate project success. In order to work towards this goal, enterprise developers work on architectural frameworks, more commonly referred to as technologies. One of the most common architectural formats or industry-standard web development frameworks to create scalable and extensible projects is the MVC (Model-View-Controller) framework. The MVC Framework is built on top of ASP.NET and provides a large set of added functionality relying on component-based development and testing.
To understand the primary differences between Sitecore MVC and ASP.net MVC frameworks, it is first necessary to place it on a common ground and define MVC, since it forms the primary basis of comparison. This leads one to understand that, on a very basic level, Sitecore MVC is essentially an additional layer of API built on ASP.net. As one of the leading enterprise-level content management systems built on ASP.net, the primary purpose of these technologies or frameworks is to enable web editors and e-marketers to organize their websites in a way that allows them to take complete control over significant aspects of their websites such as social media integration and advanced personalization.
Sitecore MVC is slightly different from the conventional ASP.net MVC, but the basic concept remains the same. Let’s compare the two on specific terms.
As already mentioned, Sitecore MVC has an additional layer of API that is very powerful. As a result of this, Sitecore items can be queried using a several methods/technologies, from standard .NET web forms to using MVC. Besides, Sitecore comes up with its own query languages, namely the Sitecore Query and Sitecore Fast Query.
Sitecore MVC provides ample flexibility, scalability and security. It has the ability to scale up to increasing demand and has been the most preferred enterprise solution for tech giants such as Microsoft to financial powerhouses such as American Express.
