    • Data Integration Tools: RabbitMQ and Talend
    • Development Environments Tools: Vagrant and Docker
    • Hosting Environments: AWS and Google Cloud
  • How and when to use the Sugar Extension Framework
  • Best practices for high-performance data loading and integration
  • Architecting for Sugar On-Demand vs Sugar On-Premise.

"I'm very excited to be part of this year's SugarCRM Architect Panel! Last year's was a huge success where everyone got to learn something from Sugar's experience managing solutions. This year we're going a bit more in-depth technically, and with a panel comprised of mostly partner experts, we will give a hands-on look on how we deliver successful Sugar implementations. If you do anything SugarCRM, make sure to check out UnCon and stay in the technical loop!’’
