Wrapping up Sitecore DX Minneapolis

Sitecore’s biggest global event series in North America came to an end with their last stop in Minneapolis. Having attended Sitecore DX in Boston earlier this year, Minneapolis sure did offer some exciting new releases with one goal in mind, accelerating the adoption of a composable DXP (Digital Experience Platform).

Sitecore’s DX events brought together hundreds of attendees where we connected with the community and our valued clients to discuss how we can help accelerate their journey to a cloud-based SaaS solution.

Meritage Homes Share their Road to Composable

As a full-service digital consultant and Sitecore Platinum Partner, our purpose is to help our clients determine the best strategy to help them future-proof their tech stack while delivering digital experiences that evangelize their customer base.

XCentium, Meritage Homes, and Sitecore took the stage to hear more about how Meritage cultivated the right internal culture and partner relationships to relieve pain points and drive organizational change.

One of the key challenges that Meritage was facing was building content at scale and having organizational alignment. XCentium took actions by identifying champions and setting foundations early on in order to map skillsets to new/additional roles, which resulted in our composable promise:

  • Flexibility and choice 
  • Decreased time to value 
  • Marketing agility 
  • Decreased IT dependency

Our partnership resulted in breaking down internal siloes and creating a single source of truth. Meritage was able to deliver content at scale more quickly and efficiently to a larger audience.
