How does it work? How does it stack to the current technology?

It hosts options utilising the concept of serverless architecture, ie running websites and applications without infrastructure management. JAMstack creates a static website, allowing the developer to construct the content and interfaces that users interact with.

What’s the pros and cons of JAMstack? 


  • It loads quickly as it caches all data as a CDN (Content Delivery Network).

  • It’s a secure website with less reliance on a database.

  • It works well with developers as it allows them to use their own tech stack.


  • Editors and marketers would need to be quite technical or trained to create and update the content with coding.

  • It’s time consuming and is a tedious process to customise templates and execute updates.

  • It’s not cohesive. It needs more resources if dynamic features are required for your website as business grows.

  • Heavily reliant on third-party systems and API’s. (If the third-party system goes down, your website will be affected as well).

Should you use JAMstack?

For organisations that don’t require much maintenance or content changes to its’ website, or if your in-house developers and editors are technically savvy, JAMstack could work.

However, responding to the constant market changes and development of new applications, a CMS (Content Management System) may be a better option. This would allow one to easily create, manage, modify and publish contents in a user-friendly interface as well as being able to create digital experiences at scale.

A true SaaS platform from the onset, Core dna was built for the cloud.

As such, we feature unrivaled security, scalability, resilience and failover. We have clients that see huge spikes in traffic and no degradation in performance. Frontier Touring - Australasia’s preeminent concert promoter - is a good example. When big acts like Paul McCartney, Guns n Roses, or Ed Sheeran announce pre-sale weekend, their site can see several million unique visitors - each making many, many calls to the server as they seek tickets - and we are happy to show you performance logs that show no significant performance degradation.

With ERP systems, there are a number of different data points that you might be interested in passing back and forth. Here are some of the most common:

If there is an API available for your ERP system, Core dna can integrate directly with your ERP using the API to call/push the data that you are looking for. We currently have API level integrations with some of the more popular systems including Microsoft Dynamics and SAP. Often times, however, you may be using a legacy system that does not have an API. We can use secure FTP or CSV files to then connect and pass data to and from Core dna.

Core dna makes PCI compliance easy by offering integrated payment gateways that allow merchants to securely transmit credit card data via direct post API methods or with hosted payment forms provided by the payment gateway and integrated with the merchant’s checkout pages.

The Direct Post method allows for information to be sent directly to the payment gateway without sensitive data flowing through or stored on the Core dna application server. We currently have over 20 integrated payment gateways. If we do not have the one you are currently using, we are happy to integrate with it for you.
