Proud of the cloud—what Enonic is planningMorten Eriksen on
What does Enonic have in store for the Experience Cloud solution?
The Enonic Experience Cloud (XC) is a fully managed cloud solution where customers are offered content management and platform services in one. Enonic XC allows you to concentrate on making engaging content and building immersive services, while hosting, deployment, upgrading, and managing are handled by cloud professionals.
One thing is knowing what we offer today in terms of content management (like headless CMS and Content Studio), platform services (like NoSQL engine, JS runtime, and SDK), and our app store Enonic Market. But what is in the pipeline? What can you expect of the future Enonic XC?
See how Enonic fits your current architecture and skill set:
Self service is around the corner
The largest new function we aim to release in 2020 is a fully self-serviced Enonic XC. With this we are making the next-level cloud, based on the modern infrastructure of Kubernetes.
Today you must contact the sales team when you wish to sign up for the Experience Cloud—and when you want to do configuration changes or updates, you need to use the support system to contact our DevOps.
Removing these manual, human steps from the process will ensure not only faster results, but also more security and stability. The self service functionality will let you sign up on Enonic.com, change plans, change configuration, and access logs. It will give you full control and instant changes, whenever you require it.

The planned introduction of self-service will have several advantages for both customers and partners of Enonic. Customers will experience several new functionalities and possibilities they haven’t had access to—if they like DIY, that is. If not, you can always get help using our support channels.
As for partners, they will be able to manage projects and customers fully self-serviced, and will be less dependent on Enonic for resources and action. This can speed up projects and launches markedly.
All in all, the future of Enonic XC will enable your company to become more agile—more able to be proactive and reactive towards changes with the possibility of handling several operations aspects yourselves.

Self-service, although important, isn’t all we have to offer in the future. More upcoming functions include:
- Enonic CLI with cloud support
- Continuous delivery
- Simpler platform upgrades (Enonic XP)
Autoscaling is a handy function for automatically managing server capacity during traffic spikes and the like, and conveniently takes the assorted stress off your mind. The Enonic CLI exists already, but will be extended to operate the cloud as well as the platform—essentially being a developer’s tool to build solutions faster. The continuous delivery solution will become a setup out of the box, removing unnecessary chafing from any project—while the simpler platform upgrades speak for themselves.
We hope you will be as excited as we are for these upcoming improvements of the Enonic Experience Cloud, and we can’t wait for even more thrilling news further down the line. Stay tuned!
