Application in Enonic XP
Enonic has a Siteimprove integration, letting the solutions of the Danish namesake company work flawlessly within the Enonic platform. Siteimprove is available as an application on Enonic Market, which means that you can install it on your Enonic site with the touch of a button in Enonic XP.
Note that the application requires a subscription with Siteimprove to function properly, and which features you experience is dependent on which Siteimprove services you are subscribed to.
When the Siteimprove application is installed and activated on your site, you can access reports on site quality, accessibility, and SEO scoring in Content Studio, via the widget menu in the upper right corner of the UI.
The widget has two modes. When you choose a site in Enonic you will get the site overview metrics, but you can also get details for a single content by selecting any content that is published.
You can see a nifty overview directly within Enonic's editing environment, or let handy links take you to the Siteimprove dashboard, for more comprehensive details.

Features of Siteimprove
Siteimprove aims to improve different aspects of your digital experiences. In practice this has led to the development of three sub-dashboards: Quality Assurance, Accessibility, and SEO. Underneath each of them you get a score overview, score details, score progress over time, issues that need fixing, and a list of fixed issues. Under each issue you are told how many points you can potentially gain by fixing it, which serves as a nice incentive.
It’s also worth to mention that you can easily open a specific content in Enonic from Siteimprove to correct mistakes and improve your content.
We'll take a quick glance on each dashboard to show you what lies beneath.
Quality Assurance handles misspellings, broken links, overly large images, content quality (like readability, long sentences, etc.), content freshness (last updates, documents in need of updating), security (publicly exposed personal ID numbers, unsafe domains), and user experience.
The accessibility section includes factors taken from the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These factors consist of, among others, images with no alt attribute, page element without description, image map without reference, headings check, formatting check, colour contrast, and many others.
