What is Enonic Experience Cloud?

Learn how you can enhance your customer journey with our digital experience cloud, Enonic XC.

In an age where connectivity is ubiquitous, the consumers have higher demands than ever—they expect to be online everywhere and your brand to offer a seamless experience across any device and channel. For large organisations, the basic need for a simple CMS was passed long ago, but now the more flexible and omnichannel-ready digital experience platforms are also losing ground.

Enter the digital experience cloud: a fully managed platform where content management and platform services are offered in one. A DXC allows you to focus on creating engaging content and developing exciting services, while leaving the heavy lifting of operations to the experts.

This is where Enonic Experience Cloud comes into the picture. What can you expect of the brand new service?

See how Enonic fits your current architecture and skill set:

Experience as a Service

As mentioned, Enonic XC offers content management and platform services in one. We label it “XaaS”—Experience as a Service. XC is designed to meet the requirements of modern web and app development, with features targeted especially towards DevOps. We can point out continuous deployment, high customisation, server-side JavaScript, and a powerful CLI and SDK.

But software development is only one side of the coin, and the flipside features the “fully managed” part we mentioned earlier. A fully managed platform removes the complexity of hosting, upgrading, and managing your content infrastructure. Enonic XC thus comes equipped with 24/7 monitoring and backup, software upgrades, a secure and scalable framework, as well as eminent support.

Content management

Content is at the heart of your digital experiences, and that’s why Enonic stresses the importance of having an excellent content hub, to easily create, manage, and re-use content across websites and apps.

With Enonic, you get access to a true omnichannel CMS at its core. Our headless CMS allows you to model and distribute your content to any channel through a powerful GraphQL API. But Enonic XC also offers the best of both worlds with our hybrid CMS approach. If more traditional CMS features like landing pages and tree structures are a part of your requirements, our hybrid CMS will fulfill that need.

To top it all, Enonic XC ships with a user-friendly UI called Content Studio, where you can manage issues, publish in bulk, preview content, and perform access control. Add a powerful search and advanced image handling to the mix, and you have powerful tools to create, manage, and re-use your content as you deem fit.

Platform services

While editors certainly get their fill with Enonic XC, we haven’t forgotten the developers. Based on our core platform, Enonic XC features a fast, scalable, and fully customisable back-end. Our NoSQL engine can store virtually any kind of data, with a corresponding search, versioning, and granular access control.

Use our highly optimised JavaScript runtime to power your sites and applications, with pluggable authentication and metrics to enhance your experience. To set your developers off fast, Enonic XC also includes standardised tools for an efficient development process, like a software development kit, a developer portal, and a continuous build pipeline.

App store

Another feature to get your developers started quickly is the Enonic Market, an integrated marketplace for sharing apps, libraries, and starter kits for the Enonic platform.

Apps include themes, Guillotine Headless CMS, Form Builder, and SEO Meta Fields, while libraries include GraphQL Library, SQL Lib, Notifications Lib, and more. Starters include Webpack, Workbox PWA, and Headless CMS.

Getting up to speed fast is a core tenet of Enonic XC. We have only seen the beginning of fully managed platforms, so come along and share our journey to build the best digital experiences for your customers.
