Deconstructing DXP: Rethink Content, Data and Experience

RETHINK CONTENT, DATA, AND EXPERIENCE TO SPEED THE DELIVERY OF THE RIGHT MESSAGE AT THE RIGHT TIME TO THE RIGHT AUDIENCE

Traditional marketing technologies lump content, data, and display together. Content can’t be separated from design or user data. This presents challenges for marketers who want to deliver experiences that are both consistent and individualized across multiple channels. Learn to think differently about content, user data, and experience so that you're prepared for the future of digital experience platforms. In this full day session, explore how to model content, segment user data, and govern experience in this new paradigm.

Target audience: Marketers, business leaders, digital strategists or technical architects interested in reimagining content, users, and experience in the new world of DXP.

Topics will include:

  • Content Modeling: How to make content work across your entire digital platform from CMS and Content as a Service to DAM and Email Marketing.

  • User Data: How segments work with content to create personalized experiences

  • Understanding the Experience Layer: HTML. Drag-and-drop. Design systems. Javascript frameworks. Understand what you really need (and don’t need!) to make your content look awesome
