Viewpoints on the Future of Interactive Websites and Apps
Vasilis Linakis, Founder and CEO at Linakis.digital shares his perspectives on the future of interactive websites and apps:
“Over the last decade, the nature of the internet has changed drastically. The use of AI, machine learning, and the availability of big data are the tools to excel in the 4th Industrial Revolution, so nothing we know now is not going to be the same in the coming years.
Leveraging cutting-edge technology and having strong partnerships with tech experts will allow us to deliver highly personalized user experiences to help our clients achieve a successful digital transformation. We are investing heavily in user research and interaction design to successfully utilize all this available power coming from the technology and tech partnerships.
From our experience, we have seen that big data won’t deliver positive results unless you have an experienced UX team to track the users’ digital footprint and translate it into a story that expresses their wants, needs and preferences. The second step towards an interactive website is to transform this story into a design that successfully serves their needs and the last step is bringing this design to life. For the last step, we need a team of highly skilled experts and reliable partners who understand the technology and share our vision.
We believe that the future of interactive websites and apps lies in personalization, and to achieve this all you need is a diverse team of experts and an extended network of partners, like SearchStax.”
Linankis.digital Partners with SearchStax to Expand Services
According to Mary Manolelli, Head of PM and Business Development, these are the reasons why Linakis.digital partners with SearchStax:
“We decided to join in a partnership with SearchStax as a strategic move to expand our services and partnerships with international digital agencies. Our partnership with Searchstax came along as we were looking for a reliable and experienced partner that has been trusted by large international organizations to minimize our team’s burden for implementing and supporting Solr. Sitecore recommended that SearchStax would be the partner we were looking for.
As a digital agency, we commit ourselves in designing, developing, and supporting many different digital assets so working with SearchStax simplifies our work due to the high availability and the automation of their Managed Solr solution. Our partnership with SearchStax lets us deliver projects much faster for our clients while giving them confidence that their Solr infrastructure will be up and running 24x7x365, even on high traffic websites.
After collaborating with Searchstax on two projects for subsidiaries of the Eurobank Group (including Postbank Bulgaria), we know we share the common values and a passion for cutting-edge technology to help companies reach their full potential in the digital era.”
“SearchStax has a deep understanding of the needs of large corporations that use the Sitecore CMS from a research perspective – our partnership will help us to maintain our vision of delivering extraordinary digital experiences in the digital era.”
