Extract metadata from your digital content landscape

When implementing a new instance of Sitecore, may it be the Experience Cloud, Platform or Experience Commerce solution, it is essential to think about the content and processes that are currently in place in your existing digital experience solution. Especially because Sitecore may use different concepts from your old WCM system and that may complicate the migration process.

Xillio is able to provide you with the insight you need in order to optimize your new platform based on current content that resides within your current system. By using our connectors, we are able to extract and generate metadata from your digital content landscape. This can be used to paint a detailed picture of your digital content in the form of reports and content quantification.

And it allows you to make fundamental design decisions based on historical content in order to implement a new system, such as Sitecore, based on the content you own and need to publish or process. Read more about how we helped one of our customers to optimize their content landscape as part of the migration to Sitecore.

Sitecore integration with other systems

You want to reuse content that is stored in Sitecore in emails, commerce, support sites, social channels and so forth. While Sitecore can do a lot of those things, your digital experience technology stack probably contains other applications too. Similarly, you probably want to translate content from Sitecore in a translation system.

So getting content in and out of Sitecore is critical to giving your customers a good experience. You can use Xillio's API as a unified way to access anything stored in Sitecore. This makes your Sitecore integrations considerably easier and cheaper.

Using the Xillio API to integrate Sitecore with other digital experience applications has the following advantages:

  • One API and one content model: use only one API and content model to access content stored in Sitecore, but also in other systems. This way your business application doesn't need to be adapted dependent on where your content resides.
  • Use Xillio's big list of other connectors to pull content from any system into your business application.
