The Next Evolution of Server Software: IntuitSolutions BigCore

October 27, 2021 | |

BigCore Server

Introduction

IntuitSolutions works on many different systems, including standard content management systems (CMS) and massive ecommerce management. One of our areas of expertise is connecting these systems to BigCommerce. BigCommerce provides a flexible Open SaaS platform that enables our customers to create robust ecommerce websites. However, there are times our customers need custom integrations built with the latest development practices and highest level of security.

Our development team often receives requests to do custom integrations for specific features on BigCommerce. There are prebuilt solutions for many requests that we receive, but we also build custom integrations. IntuitSolutions offers custom integrations ranging from simple scripting to custom ERP / API connections.

Standardizing Custom Integration Offerings 

The First Edition of BigCore

​​Since we received so many requests, we began to standardize a server. We started with a framework with Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. All of our custom integrations were securely built and hosted on the server. Over time the server evolved into a standardized package with an application called BigCore.

The New and Improved BigCore Server

Our developers work hard on improving, modernizing, and adding security to the BigCore server. Our developers carefully engineered a continuous integration continuous deployment (CI/CD) methodology, enabling us to keep apps updated and synced across multiple frameworks. The CI/CD improves testing updates both locally or on a staging environment. The updates can be deployed in the same state as they would be in production.

The Advantages of Using BigCore

We always strive to deliver the best, most modern code to our clients to improve the reliability of their websites. The benefits of upgrading to the latest version of BigCore include:
