Americaneagle.com started the project by performing multiple strategies, including web, content, experience marketing, and technical. Along with design and development, Sitecore Experience Marketing and Hawk Search were implemented on the sites.

Cristie Lynch, Director of Customer Experience and Brand Strategy at Samaritan Health Plans, commented, "For Samaritan Health Plans, moving to the Sitecore platform and having the opportunity to start fresh on our websites was an exciting challenge. It was clear from the start, we had a lot to learn. We were eager students and the Americaneagle.com team proved to be effective teachers and thoughtful partners, opening up a new world of possibilities for us to grow our business. While our new sites boast many new features that are proving to be extremely effective sales tools for our statewide network of brokers, it is the potential for offering tailored, online experiences to our varied customers, from retirees to young families to corporations, which holds forth the greatest promise. We thank our patient teachers and collaborators at Americaneagle.com for opening up this new world of possibilities to us."

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
