EPiServer Announces Digital Experience Cloud Spring 2015

Introduces Seamless Consumption-Based Cloud Model; Availability of Cross-Platform Functionality; Expanded Connectivity with CRM and Marketing Automation; and Advanced Sales and Marketing Features for Standout Digital Engagement

STOCKHOLM and NASHUA, N.H., May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- EPiServer, a leading provider of digital marketing and digital commerce solutions, today launched its Spring version of the Digital Experience Cloud™ featuring key enhancements to use the platform based on consumption and enable seamless experiences that span digital marketing, digital commerce, and post-sale customer experiences.


The Spring launch also delivers on EPiServer's customer centric roadmap to extend the functionality of its flagship solutions. The release advances the strategy established through the Ektron/EPiServer merger by the availability of best-in-class features to extend customers' existing investments in advanced web content management, enterprise connectivity, enabling search and digital commerce.

Digital Experience Cloud: New Cloud Configurations

The Spring launch delivers expanded configuration options for the Digital Experience Cloud. Staying true to its simple pricing approach, EPiServer now offers three new levels of software- as-a-service (SaaS) subscription ownership: Group, Corporate or Enterprise. This straightforward cloud packaging provides elastic scale based on the scope of the organization and its objectives. EPiServer Digital Experience Cloud – a cloud-first solution – can now be delivered on-demand via a consumption model; in a private cloud; and continues to be available for on-premise deployments.

"It's sales and marketing focused organizations that have pioneered the use of the cloud to gain efficiencies in deployment, scalability, and the agility to act quickly to address new strategies and customer needs," said Bob Egner, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing for EPiServer. "The EPiServer Spring launch offers a way to unlock your most critical experiences, content, and catalogs and put them where your customers already are – in the cloud."

Extension of 'Best-Of' Features from Ektron and EPiServer

The Spring launch extends key features from the two product lines in both directions. Most notably for existing EPiServer customers, availability of the Digital Experience Hub (DXH) allows connectivity and interaction with third-party systems to tailor every digital experience through the benefit of a 360-degree view of the customer – history, preferences, and habits. DXH supports new connectors to popular marketing automation solutions like Marketo, Hubspot, Salesforce Sales Cloud (Pardot) and Salesforce Marketing Cloud (ExactTarget), giving marketers the power to dynamically personalize content through the integration of email, rich content management and the web. DXH connectors also support ease of integration with CRM platforms such as Salesforce and Microsoft CRM.

For existing Ektron customers, EPiServer Find relevance technology is now available, a unique capability that streamlines the process of surfacing the most relevant content to individual visitors for one-to-one marketing. Additionally, EPiServer Commerce may be used side by side with the Ektron platform to streamline the process of creating digital commerce experiences.

Spring Launch Enhancements

Additional features are designed to save marketers time and effort and optimize digital experience creation and maintenance:

  • Find Virtual Appliance -- now available as a stand-alone offering or as a managed service -- moves Find beyond the firewall with an on-premise Virtual Appliance.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
