The future of DX is bright, find your shades! The Asponte Technology report from IBM Think 2019 on the future of IBM Digital Experience and its transition to HCL.
With the announcement of HCL Technologies acquiring the on-premise Digital Experience Suite, customers have been curious as to the future of the platform. We learned so much about the future of Digital Experience that we're prepping our shades because the future is bright! IBM held several sessions targeting this specific topic and they have announced a very exciting roadmap. All of these exciting enhancements are being worked on in parallel, with some being delivered as soon as next quarter.
First up is support for cloud technologies, specifically Docker and kubernetes. This will allow the product to be containerized and allow customers a lot of flexibility in the deployment infrastructure. For a more detailed dive into why this is so important for the future, please reach out to us and we'll be happy to dive deeper into this topic with you.
Microservices are the new wave of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), and the Digital Experience platform is getting an internal makeover to enhance the available APIs and provide them as microservices that developers can leverage. This will allow the reuse of content across all channels. Details on this are being kept close, but we're super excited to start leveraging Portal microservices within our portlets and content!
