Sitecore Composable DXP – Digital Bytes

This week I had the pleasure to talk with Himadri from Nishtech about Sitecore’s SaaS journey and how we are moving to the Composable DXP.

Nishtech Digital Bytes – Sitecore Composable DXP

Nish Tech digital bytes outline

When you think of a traditional digital experience platform, you probably think of a monolithic, tightly coupled full-stack suite from a single vendor that allows you to manage the entire digital experience, from content management to digital marketing and analytics. But maybe you don’t need all that. The concept of a composable DXP allows you to create a custom solution using technology that fits your needs and works with your existing processes and infrastructure.

In this episode we’re excited to welcome Sitecore Senior Director of Technical Marketing Pieter Brinkman to discuss his thoughts on the composable DXP and how it fits into Sitecore’s roadmap.

Thanks again to Nishtech and Himadri for the lovely conversation.

During the last 7 months, I had a side job next to my Technical Marketing Job. I was asked to create the positioning and messaging to support our Managed Cloud offering as interim Product Marketing Director Managed Cloud at Sitecore.
