Sitecore DXP: Proof Monoliths are Dead

Sitecore, a popular monolith in the digital experience platform (DXP) space, is swapping its legacy, monolithic approach to web content management, and is adopting what appears to be a composable, API-first ecosystem. At least that’s what the latest announcement indicates.

More than anything, this proves that migrating to a modular DXP is the sure-fire way to future-proof your content offering. Likewise, Gartner affirms that the future of enterprise applications is composable

Sitecore DXP Transition Proves Monoliths Are No Longer Fit For Purpose

Enterprises need a solution that’ll give them maximum flexibility to meet present and future demands, and monoliths can no longer suffice. For a modern enterprise seeking to be fully agile, digitally savvy, and able to create engaging customer journeys, using monolithic platforms brings out a range of issues that can be severely limiting or even damaging to a modern enterprise. 

Let’s take a look at some of these problems:

Still Using a Monolithic DXP? Here’s What You’re Missing

For enterprises still relying on monolithic DXPs, you are missing out on a ton of benefits by not leveraging a composable DXP like Zesty.io. Some of these benefits include:

Seamless Integrations With Best of Breed MACH Solutions

Building your tech stack with the right solutions is a good way to ensure success—and one way to do that is to choose best-of-breed solutions that follow the principles of MACH architecture. These principles help you select and integrate microservices-based, modular, and flexible solutions that will future-proof your tech stack, ensuring you can adapt easily to any market needs. 

Scalability Without Limits

Consistent success cannot be possible without the right foundation for scaling your technologies. Composable DXPs enable you to scale your tech stack up or down according to your needs. You can easily add or remove any solution as you see fit without breaking existing infrastructure. 

Faster Time to Market

Since composable DXPs enable you to take advantage of modular microservice-based solutions, you can always rely on solutions that are easy to use, developer and marketer-friendly, and highly effective. Building your tech stack with a composable DXP ensures faster development, automated upgrades, seamless integrations, and customer-centric experiences.

Omnichannel Delivery

‘Build once and deliver everywhere’ is a guiding principle for ensuring brand consistency across all channels. Composable DXPs help to future-proof your tech stack, ensuring you’re always ready to build and deliver consistent digital experiences to any channel or device, such as websites, email, mobile apps, digital assistants, and IoT-enabled devices.

Customer-Centric Digital Experience

Customer experience is an increasingly vital element in any business. Having composable DXPs enable you to tailor experiences to each customer through API-first, AI-powered, analytics, and personalization functionalities. You’ll be able to adapt to current and future customer demands and deliver omnichannel experiences.


Zesty.io: Start Building Your Composable Digital Experience Platform

Recent Sitecore acquisitions demonstrate that the future of DXP is composable. However, Sitecore’s journey toward full composability will still take time due to its underlying monolithic architecture. Continuing with these monoliths will inevitably place your company behind your competitors, negatively impact customer experiences, and limit future growth. 

Thankfully, there’s hope; you can easily migrate to a MACH-powered, API-first composable DXP by leveraging Zesty.io. Zesty.io is a hybrid headless CMS with the full power of WebEngine to build complete sites, ensure consistent omnichannel delivery, developer/marketer-friendly, and most importantly serve as the basis to build your DXP by integrating easily with other best of breed solutions.
