Bjarne Fyrstenborg


With the title as MVP in Umbraco, Bjarne is certainly a specialist in the system. He has many years of experience in Umbraco, and he always manages to crack the otherwise most complicated solutions.

Today, with over 500,000 installations, Umbraco is one of the most popular CMS platforms. And with good reason. With Umbraco, you can quickly, easily and cheaply get started in establishing yourself in the online market.


Time-to-market and readiness for change are paramount in the highly competitive market, which is why Umbraco can be the ideal digital platform when you want an efficient digital content management system.

And it does not matter what kind of industry you are employed in. Umbraco is already used in both B2B and B2C as well as webshop and website by various companies of all sizes.

And that is precisely why Umbraco is one of Denmark's most popular Open Source CMS systems. This is a user-friendly platform that is easy to use, simple to customize and robust enough to contain additional features and functions.


Why should I choose Umbraco CMS?

Umbraco is an Open Source platform. This means that the CMS system as something very central is strongly supported by an active network of developers all over the world as well as a commercial organization that provides professional support. With that said, it is a platform that is constantly evolving and without expensive licenses.

The network contributes with extensions, and it makes the platform more flexible and easy to adapt to special and unique needs. It is therefore your security to get a personal expression that fits exactly YOUR business whether you are starting from scratch or are already well established on an Umbraco website.

Umbraco, however, is more than that. Therefore, you can choose to use either Umbraco Cloud or Umbraco Uno.


What is Umbraco Cloud?

Umbraco Cloud is your opportunity to consolidate the operation of your CMS in the Cloud, as all your Umbraco installations will be located in one external server park at Microsoft Azure. This means you avoid worries about server setup, performance, space consumption, security updates, upgrades, etc.

All you have to do is make sure your technical platform is in top shape.

That way, Umbraco Cloud is your path to a secure workflow - and at the same time you get released a huge amount of time, so you can instead concentrate on your business, as you do not have to think about web hotels or servers with hosting providers when you need to upgrade your Umbraco CMS, operating systems or server hardware and provide backup and security - everything is handled by Umbraco Cloud.

In addition, it is also economical for you.

This is because your developers can focus on developing new features instead of maintenance. They can work with baselines - that is, a template for your code base that can be reused across sites, and therefore your content editor will also be more efficient.

And it provides a test flow that can be described in 3 steps:

  1. In the local environment, the developers work with features, which at the end are pushed to a common code base
  2. Here, the new development of i.a. testers, product owner, and whatever else you have in your organization, and then they are pushed on to stagging
  3. At the stagging level, the content is worked on, and therefore the development is not touched upon

It is therefore a smooth process where it is possible to develop new features while working on new content. And it can be tested continuously without the live environment being affected.

And it has 3 advantages in particular:

  1. A fast environment
  2. Stable data storage
  3. And scalability when needed

With Umbraco Cloud you also get SSL, easy user and domain management and powertools, so you can manage your site via PowerShell.


What is Umbraco Uno?

Umbraco Uno is a no-code platform. And this is a place where it is especially the creative thoughts that are allowed to run free.

Umbraco Uno, like Umbraco Cloud, is a Cloud service, which is why all your content will always be stored in the Cloud via Microsoft Azure. And then it's an integral part of Umbraco Cloud. It gives you an extra range of options for creating projects. Among other things. you get pre-filled content in the form of a sample website with widgets, a CMS Saas approach is standard and custom code as well as back end settings are disabled.

Umbraco Uno is also set up with creative agencies in mind, which may not necessarily have developers employed internally in the organization, and therefore need a service that does not require a custom code to reach a both beautiful and functional website.

Therefore, Umbraco Uno is the perfect choice for editors, designers and marketers who do not necessarily have experience with the programming language, C #. However, a basic understanding of HTML is useful.

There is no steep learning curve and no code. Only your creativity.

You just choose the widgets that create the flat that is unique and descriptive of your business, you choose images, a logo, colors, fonts, write good texts, and then you have all the ingredients needed to showcase what you stand for.

And of course, everything is updated - completely automatically, so your Umbraco site always has the latest security and bug fixes. Umbraco Uno is a genuine SaaS product with a strong focus on service. Therefore, you never need to perform manual updates.

Umbraco Uno is therefore also built with features that support your SEO needs, so you always appear the best possible - no matter where your users find you.
