Don’t you hate it when you’re trying to create an attractive marketing page, or a powerful web experience, and the tools just seem to get in your way?  Do you need to create an attractive marketing page, but the backend tools are lacking? Are you frustrated looking for skilled resources to manage and create the experiences? We can help.

HCL DX 9.5 features a new, consolidated user interface called “Practitioner Studio” and a completely new demonstration site called “Woodburn Studio”. Between them, these provide a modernized and consolidated landing page for authors and site administrators. 

Why does this matter?  Well, the new Practitioner Studio brings together all of our tools –content creation, site management, personalization, and admin capabilities – into a single, convenient workspace.   Our existing customers will find that navigation needed to accomplish common tasks in HCL DX are streamlined and intuitive, and it makes it much easier for new users to learn how to use the product and get new content published in minutes.

Need a way to get your creative juices flowing?  Great news – we have also built a new demonstration site called “Woodburn Studio.”  This site is a gorgeous demonstration of the product’s capabilities and will provide a good foundation to extend our range of demonstrations and samples in the future.

Taken together, these capabilities are a first step towards a much more extensive modernization of the HCL DX user interface.  This will help provide a faster time to market for the digital experiences for all of your audiences, as well as help empower business users.  Now you have the most powerful DX platform on the market – with an upgraded practitioner experience to match. Creating, managing, and publishing memorable experiences more effectively has never been easier.

Join us at our DX Inspire v9.5 launch events in October to learn more (Raleigh, NC, and Milan, Italy), and check our webpage on September 30 to learn more details about our latest release.

HCL Digital Experience: Rising Above and Exceeding Expectations
By: Brian Chaput, Associate Vice President, Offering Management, HCL Digital Experience Software
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And we know that when you're one of the best, competitors want to take you down. HCL Digital Experience was born from proven, trusted technology from IBM (with IBM Digital Experience, IBM WebSphere Portal, and IBM Web Content Manager), and an important question after it was acquired by HCL became: What will HCL do with it?  We are proud to say that we have made incredible strides with our product and continue to focus on helping our customers digitize their critical business processes, much to the dismay of competitors everywhere. In fact, in IDC’s recent market note, they were extremely positive on what we had accomplished in a few short months since moving to HCL, citing our “capability to innovate and modernize” this leading platform. As there are some misconceptions being perpetuated in the market, I want to share with you some of the things we are doing to continue to rise above and exceed expectations. HCL Digital Experience proves itself through the successes of our customers, not through false claims or promises we can’t keep.   Modern web languages and OpenAPIs for liberated experience delivery Developers, take notice!  You can deliver cutting-edge experiences to any and all digital touch points, leveraging the latest front-end frameworks (ie: Vue, React, Angular) and the new self-describing OpenAPI set of REST services.  This has our competitors worried as we are empowering developers to access headless services to continue to integrate to critical business processes and applications securely, using their tools and front-end frameworks of choice. Unsurpassed standardization and flexibility I am particularly proud of our production Docker & Kubernetes support on RedHat OpenShift, Amazon EKS, Microsoft Azure as well as others and the benefits that it provides to our customers.  This means that...
