Figures celebrate the winning of an award by a team member

Jihyun Kim was one of only 215 Technologist worldwide and one of only 79 in the U.S. to be named a Sitecore MVP this year. 

The Sitecore Experience Platform

Sitecore's experience platform combines web content management, omnichannel digital delivery, customer insight and engagement, and strategic digital marketing tools into a single, unified platform. The platform is incredibly easy to use, capturing every minute interaction—and intention—that customers and prospects have with a brand, both on a website and across other online and offline channels. The end-to-end experience technology works behind the scenes to deliver context marketing to individual customers, so that they engage in relevant brand experiences that earn loyalty and achieve business results.

The Sitecore MVP Award

The Sitecore MVP Award recognizes the most active Sitecore experts from around the world who participate in online and offline communities to share their knowledge with other Sitecore partners and customers.

"Our rock star web development team is dedicated to implementing innovative solutions that will allow USF Health to be more agile and robust in our web presence for our clients." ~ Heather Sampson, User Interface Technical Lead, USF Health Information Systems

Jihyun's contribution were especially unique. He noticed that although there were many people discussing Sitecore online, there was minimal discussion of the platform in his native language, Korean.

So, he created and maintained a blog to share information about how best to use and benefit from Sitecore using the Korean language. This helped to expand interest in Sitecore around the world and enabled many others in different countries to learn and grow from his expertise and personal experience with Sitecore.

"The Sitecore MVP awards recognize and honor those who make substantial contributions to our loyal community of partners and customers," says Pieter Brinkman, Director of Developer and Platform Evangelism, Sitecore. "MVPs consistently set a standard of excellence by delivering technical chops, enthusiasm, and a commitment to giving back to the Sitecore community. They truly understand and deliver on the power of the Sitecore Experience Platform to create contextualized brand experiences for their consumers, driving revenue and loyalty for life."
