Ditch the silos! Why composable tech is the way to go

Content Management Systems (CMS) have come a long way since their inception. But as tech and customer needs have evolved, so too have CMSs. We're in a world where experience matters and companies must evolve and deliver better experiences at speed, hence the evolution to Digital Experience Platforms (DXP) that offer extensive capabilities and flexibly.

They can combine the best of a 360 view of customer interactions with a great content experience across channels..

Composable technology allows you to 'bolt-on' applications that suit your business needs.

Wiki's official definition of composability is:

"Composability is a system design principle that deals with the inter-relationships of components. A highly composable system provides components that can be selected and assembled in various combinations to satisfy specific user requirements."

'Specific user requirements', like those of your audience, can apply to your business too. 

Composable DXPs

These can really help in streamlining your entire digital infrastructure. One such DXP is the Sitecore Composable DXP. It’s a platform that encompasses the elements needed for a great digital experience; designed so you can bolt on whatever suits your business needs.

It's a common occurrence that data is dispersed in different systems. It’s a pain. From email marketing and automation to CRM systems, you can almost hear your colleagues’ frustrated sighs whenever they have 5 browser windows open.

With a composable DXP your business will enjoy a rosy future of a streamlined, tailored and all-in-one system where the analytics from experiences are stored in a Customer Data Platform (CDP).

Let's take Sitecore for instance. Its composable DXP allows you to add applications to get the optimum performance from your digital systems. Sitecore's composable stack is built on 5 pillars:

  1. Delivery

  2. Commerce

  3. Experience

  4. Content

  5. Platform

Each pillar is dedicated to delivering specific technologies and APIs for developers, content editors and marketers.

  • Experience Edge

  • Commerce

  • Order Cloud

  • Experience Platform

  • Personalise

  • Search

  • Send

  • Experience Manager

  • Symphony

  • Content hub

  • Analytics

More composables

A composable infrastructure isn't just limited to DXPs though. Its far reaching capabilities enables businesses to become a lot more agile. It reduces the operational complexity of the workforce while increasing operational efficiency. Other benefits include, but aren't limited to:

  • Cost effectiveness

  • Less maintenance

  • Ease of deployments

  • Reducing tech silos

  • Quicker to adapt to the pace of change

Composable apps and infrastructures are expected to grow, according to GoodFirms, at a rate of 20% by 2028.

In banking for instance, a composable architecture is used in the design and delivery of financial services. In healthcare, telemedicine platforms with remote patient monitoring tools established their value during the pandemic.

It’s evident that the composable approach is the way forward. It will streamline your business and exceed customer expectations.

Back to the DXP. Remember those sighs? By adopting a composable DXP those sighs will evolve into satisfying smiles.
