What Are Content Experience Platforms?

Content experience platforms are the next generation offering to address the age-old enterprise need for creating and delivering dynamic experiences to users on any device. Historically, this need has been met by web content management systems (WCM), which have undergone numerous transformations as they have evolved to address the shifting needs of the modern enterprise content pipeline, which needs to move beyond the static website model of the past.

What is Digital Experience Analytics?

Today, Digital Experience analytics is about the ability to measure and understand the way that people and machines interact with applications, and, in particular, web experiences. The analytics offerings of the past were focused on basic insights into pageviews, clickthrough rates, and other surface-level metrics that give a basic impression of digital engagement. They also helped to identify gaps in journeys where the expected action by a user did not occur due to a variety of reasons. While these metrics are invaluable numbers to have, they often only provide a top-down perspective on the website as a whole, rather than an understanding of what the customer is doing and thinking.

What are Key Benefits of Content Experience Platforms?

Content experience platforms don’t just solve the same problems as yesterday’s CMS. They are instead designed to drive return on investments by prioritizing user experience. Content experience platforms allow streamlined content authoring and publishing workflows, emphasizing omnichannel content delivery, integrations driven by APIs, scalability, and quick deployment through low-code solutions. New platforms are built to accelerate enterprise go-to-market viability by cutting out the content management busywork that holds back product deployment.
