About This Constellation ShortList™

Digital experience (DX) platforms are intended to coordinate the volume and complexity of customer interactions and bridge consistency gaps between key touchpoints across marketing, service and commerce. They provide a means of managing web properties, mobile app interactions and digital content; evaluating customer behaviors; and tailoring content and communications based on those behaviors in context as well as other characteristics.

The goal of DX platforms is to facilitate tailored customer experiences that are consistent across digital channels and points in the customer journey. Some also provide capabilities to support in-store or offline elements of customer experience as well.

These systems typically combine content management, web and mobile experience, and commerce management. They make it possible to create personalized customer journeys across marketing communications and commerce sites. They analyze customer behaviors and identify important or distinct patterns, often using artificial intelligence (AI). AI may also be applied to dynamically serving content to customers.
