Sitecore 10.4, which was announced in April and released a few weeks ago, brings important updates for Sitecore Experience Manager (XM) and Sitecore Experience Platform (XP) users to enhance their websites.

We know that many of our Sitecore users are considering the upgrade to 10.4 to deliver better content on their sites, so we updated accordingly:

SearchStax Managed Search service now supports Sitecore 10.4 via our Sitecore connector.

Let’s take a quick look at what’s new in Sitecore 10.4

What's New in Sitecore 10.4?

Upgrading to Sitecore 10.4 gives a huge boost to organizations who are looking to enhance their digital experience platform (DXP). One of the key benefits of Sitecore 10.4 is its improved performance and scalability.

The latest version introduces:

  • Improved accessibility within the content editor
  • Improvements to Sitecore’s Solr drivers
  • Numerous bug fixes and optimizations

 

Another substantial advantage of upgrading to Sitecore 10.4 is the enhanced user experience for both content editors and end-users. The new version features a more accessible and user-friendly interface, making it easier for content editors to create, manage and publish content efficiently. This reduces the learning curve for new users and increases productivity for experienced editors.

With a more efficient pipeline for creating and personalizing content, teams managing content-rich websites will also need a robust search solution that matches the scope of Sitecore 10.4’s updates. Our 10.4 connector update delivers a seamless upgrade experience for Managed Search users.

Thinking about migrating to XM Cloud?

Sitecore 10.4 includes additional enhancements and support for XM to XM Cloud Migration tooling. Whether you’re migrating or starting fresh with XM Cloud, you’ll need a site search solution as the Sitecore ContentSearch API is not available in Sitecore’s SaaS-based XM Cloud offering.

SearchStax Site Search pairs perfectly with XM Cloud and will help you create a fast, relevant site search experience that gives marketers maximum agility, actionable search insights and the ability to promote content with just a few clicks.

You can learn more about integrating Sitecore 10.4 with SearchStax Managed Search in the Product Documentation. You can also download the latest Sitecore Connector package from our Github repository.
