Structure templates and content within Sitecore, work with integrated tools, and leverage its extensive automation capabilities. Sitecore was recently recognized as one of the most reputable and reliable, enterprise-class web content management solutions (WCMS) available in the marketplace. Thousands of companies are using Sitecore to manage their digital experiences online.

Phil Wicklund is a regional practice manager (responsible for the Sitecore team) at RBA, Inc. He provides managerial, operational, and profit/loss oversight across RBA's portals, business intelligence, enterprise social, collaboration, and managed services teams within RBA's North region. Phil started working in IT in 2003 and has since designed and deployed many dozens of large-scale enterprise solutions, including many for Fortune 50 companies. As a regional practice manager he owns the profit/loss for his practice which has him performing many activities beyond a typical technologist, such as ownership of a great employee experience, ensuring unparalleled customer satisfaction, opportunity tracking/planning in CRM, pre-sales solution alignment with customers, account strategies, go-to market strategies, marketing/promotion strategies, and fiscal budgetary responsibilities. Phil is currently in his 2nd year of Doctoral studies at the University of St. Thomas. He works to extend his studies in technology and business by deepening his understanding of Organizational Leadership, working toward a dissertation that combines the three disciplines. He hopes to graduate in late 2016 or spring of 2017. Jason Wilkerson is the Discipline Lead of the Sitecore practice at RBA, Inc., a Sitecore Platinum Partner. In 2016, he had the honor of being selected as a Sitecore Technology MVP, primarily due to his commitment to the Sitecore Community as a speaker, blogger and thought leader. Jason's passions lie deep in architecture and technology. With an unrivaled eye towards quality and elegance, he strives to make every customer's solution the most intuitive and maintainable it can possibly be - not only from a technical standpoint, but also from the user's perspective. With almost two decades of experience building enterprise-class software, as well as leading teams of developers, project managers, business analysts and quality assurance testers, he's been able to assemble an impressive list of successful projects, leaving nothing but satisfied customers behind him. In his free time, Jason is also an avid singer, guitar player and bassist. From a very early age, the same passion that has driven him in technology, has driven his love for music and the honing of his talents. It is this creative outlet, he believes, that provides a unique perspective in the realm of technology. His training and education in computer science provides the foundation for the engineering side of software, but his creative nature serves as the backdrop for creating intuitive, user-centric, customer solutions.
