DXP Done Right

Content and Data form the foundation of digital experiences. Acquia’s Digital Experience Platform (DXP) combines both in an open, flexible platform that helps customers accelerate their digital transformation. This empowers you to build for the future with a platform that will scale and grow as needs evolve and markets change.

"A digital experience platform (DXP) is an integrated set of core technologies that support the composition, management, delivery and optimization of contextualized digital experiences. DXPs place a high degree of emphasis on interoperability and cross-channel continuity across the entire customer journey.

The purpose of a DXP is to be the central technological foundation for the digital customer experience aspect of a digital business."

Your Experience Infrastructure

As enterprises rethink their digital stacks from end to end to run, operate, compete and differentiate in the digital-first world, they must put in place a new, flexible digital architecture that will scale with them for the future. An architecture that enables digital-first enterprises to flourish, with modular services to quickly develop and roll out new types of applications and experiences reliably & securely to engage customers and help them achieve their goals. 

Content & Data at the Heart of DXP

The foundations of a DXP are content and data, because: 

  • Content is guiding the customer on their journey. Content is 70% of digital marketing spend. It's the lifeblood of experiences and the customer journey.
  • Data is what guides content and experience to deliver at any moment. What content to product, what content to surface, at what time, to whom.
