Make The Cloud A Foundation Of Your Digital Experience Platform Strategy

Push Vendors And Service Providers To Describe Benefits, Not Cloud Marketing-Speak

August 7, 2015


Why Read This Report

The digital experience (DX) platform market has been slow to move to the cloud. Fortunately, major digital experience platform vendors like Adobe and SAP hybris are now embracing the cloud to deploy and operate their software, and service providers like Deloitte, Razorfish Global, and SapientNitro have repositioned their managed hosting options as more cloud-like DX platforms. But what cloud benefits do vendors and service providers actually deliver? This report for application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals clarifies cloud terminology for digital experience platforms, articulates the benefits that come from each cloud model, and prods vendors to simplify how they talk about their cloud services to accelerate purchasing and deployment. With this report, Forrester also announces its deeper investigation into how the cloud will disruptively improve digital experience platforms.
