MOJO Marketplace Unveils “Do It for Me” Services
|By Business Wire

Marketplace, an Endurance
International Group (NASDAQ:EIGI) brand delivering themes, codes,
plug-ins and scripts, today announced the launch of Professional
Services. The new offering complements the digital goods already
provided through the Marketplace and includes services for e-commerce,
analytics, SEO, web design, development, and WordPress
Professional Services provides ease of accessibility for less tech-savvy
small business owners seeking to take advantage of everything MOJO
Marketplace has to offer, making it truly a one-stop-shop. According to
Brady Nord, one of MOJO’s founders, “We noticed that once customers
bought a theme from MOJO Marketplace, they often didn’t know how to
install it. Now, you can buy a theme and get it installed by a
MOJO-trusted seller – all without leaving the website.”
Cost has long been a deterrent for small business owners looking for an
online presence. According to a recent small business industry survey
published by eMarketer, nearly 30% of small business owners that don’t
have a website cite “cost to design/build” as the reason. MOJO’s new
offering fills the need for a more economical solution, with services
priced between $29-$149. And, with an average turnaround time of just 3
days, it’s a quick solution.
MOJO’s new Professional Services offering even has products developed
just for WordPress, one of the most popular self-publishing platforms in
the world. WordPress
Services includes options for installing WordPress themes, adding
Google Analytics to a site, and integrating WooCommerce into a WordPress
“We are very excited about the launch of Professional Services,” said
J.R. Farr, MOJO’s other founder. “It is great for our customers because
they have access to relevant and useful services at a great price, and
it is also great for our sellers because it provides them additional
opportunities for income. It’s a win-win.”
Farr added, “As the needs of our customers evolve, we expect to expand
the range of services available through Professional Services and to
increase the number of website platforms compatible with our
Professional Services offering.”

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures.
Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
