The case for upgrading to the Sitecore Experience Platform (XP) 8.1

You may be asking yourself why you should upgrade to the Sitecore Experience Platform (XP) 8.1. After all, your Sitecore CMS solution is doing what you want it to do, right? So why bother?

Consider a few things though. If you want your business to keep up with today’s ever changing digital advancements then you should strive to be ahead of the curve. Sitecore can help here. Chances are that, even though you are already running Sitecore, your business critical marketing technologies (and so intelligence gathering ability) is siloed. This disconnect means that your marketing team can’t obtain a rounded view of your prospects and customers. And, because of this, the opportunities to deliver real-time, contextual personalised messages to them across multiple channels are hard to effect.

By upgrading to Sitecore’s latest release, version 8.1 your business will be enabled to deliver, measure and track your customers’ digital experiences across all your touchpoints. Managed under one solution; inside one integrated user interface.

Not to mention the chance to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the marketing tool set. This can also help build a strong case for upgrading to the Sitecore Experience Platform (XP) 8.1. A few considerations here are:

  • The cost of running multiple applications
  • The cost of bringing together customer datasets
  • The cost of analysing and reporting on customer activity across silos
  • The cost of actually putting it all together
