Why the Cloud is Key for a Digital Experience Platform

Why the Cloud is Key for a Digital Experience Platform

Why is using the cloud so important? In short, it doesn’t rely on hardware which frees us space, the cost of servers, is faster to use and navigate, and is ideal for scaling for fluctuating demands in bandwidth.

Brands and retailers are increasingly using cloud tech. In fact, 67% of their infrastructure is now cloud based, with even more turning to it to support specific aspects of their company. Meanwhile, traditional architecture fails to meet the necessities of modern-day marketing.

As one of the best cloud-based platforms for ecommerce brands, Adobe Experience Manager empowers both marketers and ITers to get stuff done faster, cheaper, and more efficiently.

Cloud Manager for Adobe Experience Manager

Why the Cloud is Key for a Digital Experience PlatformOffering first generation cloud-native functionality for Adobe Experience Manager is Cloud Manager, offering two hands full of useful digital tools.

With creatives having to bang out fast content that resonates well with consumers and provides valuable and relevant experiences, it requires the turnaround to be squeezed and shortened through best-in-class tools.

Based on Adobe Engineering, its code quality checks are being carried out as part of the process of rolling out new deployments. By doing this, it relieves the pressure that’s put on IT teams, as code quality checks automatically checks each and every time a new code release is scheduled, making this move faster and faster to production, meanwhile ensuring both security and quality.

Beyond Code Deployments

AEM’s Cloud Manager also provides brands with the capability of scaling. Think about if you were a retailer who received unexpected high rates of user traffic because a social media post went viral and everyone’s cramming onto your site. With Adobe Experience Manager, its autoscaling ensures little to no disruption to the site’s performance and allows your teams to deal with curating experiences in real time.

Also, the APIs available on AEM’s Cloud Manager via Adobe input/output allows for connectivity to external systems as well as Experience Cloud products. And gets teams to integrate custom processes into AEM Cloud Manager’s Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery pipeline.

Keeping up to date

Why the Cloud is Key for a Digital Experience PlatformThe environment management of AEM is continually evolving and updating, with new cloud-native functionality being released on a monthly basis. One cool update in the last few months was frictionless upgrades. Via wizard-driven processes that boost Adobe Experience Manager and the efficiency of upgrades, these frictionless upgrades means no disruptions to any current operations.

Clouds are very much the present and future forecast of company infrastructure, its agility and scalability an important piece of the modern day infrastructure of a big and bold company – to speed the innovative process, and times to delivery. And with Adobe Experience Manager, companies get best-in-class digital solutions.
