Overcome obstacles to Headless & XM Cloud
Sitecore’s directional shift towards headless architecture and composable solutions may leave customers with investments in Sitecore XP struggling to envision a path to modernization.
To get there, we start by assessing your existing marketing technology stack and its ability to meet your business objectives. We then look at your established KPIs and evaluate your organizational readiness to achieve your future state. Finally, we break the future state into a sequence of projects and tasks, identifying their complexity and business impact, while understanding dependencies to properly sequence them into a roadmap.
This approach helps identify priorities, create strategic alignment, and guide decisions about where and how to embrace XM Cloud, headless, and composable strategies for driving business KPIs.
