Do you need to upgrade?

If you are not sure about upgrading to the newest version of XP or moving to Sitecore XM Cloud, Sitecore’s recommendation is:

  1. Stay with XP if you are…

              a)    a new XP customer (version 10.x)
b)    using functionality beyond the content management
c)    have on-prem requirements or long-term commitments

     2. Add CDP to your existing XP if you’re looking to

              a)    expand customer data use across channels
b)    augment current personalization and testing

     3. Migrate to XM Cloud now if 

              a)    using versions prior 10.x
b)    not using XP functionalities investment
c)    planning to redesign/reorganize experience delivery at scale
