Businesses need agile and adaptable platforms to deliver exceptional experiences. That's the power of a composable DXP

A Composable DXP is a modular approach to building a Digital Experience Platform that's tailored to your unique needs. At Marcel Digital, we bring a decade of expertise as an Umbraco Gold Partner to help you implement a Composable DXP strategy that future-proofs your tech stack. Learn why Composable DXP creates exceptional digital experiences.

What is a Composable DXP?

A Composable DXP is a Digital Experience Platform built on a modular architecture. Unlike traditional DXPs - also known as monolith DXPs - which offer a one-size-fits-all solution, a Composable DXP allows you to choose the components that align with your specific requirements. This flexibility enables you to utilize best-in-class solutions to create a platform that can easily adapt to market changes and evolving customer needs.

Why Adopt a Composable DXP Strategy?

Adopting a Composable DXP strategy is an investment in the future. It allows you to scale individual components independently, adapt to market changes swiftly, and deliver a personalized experience to your customers—all crucial elements for future-proofing your tech stack. A Composable DXP allows you to continue utilizing technologies you currently use, and to plug and play new solutions as needed to better adjust to changing organization and client needs. 

Key Benefits of Implementing a Composable DXP

  • Flexibility: Choose components that align with your business goals, whether it's content management, e-commerce, marketing automation, or customer relationship management.
  • Speed of Implementation: The modular nature of Composable DXP allows for quicker deployment of individual technologies, helping you go to market faster.
  • Customer-Centricity: Tailor your platform to meet the specific needs of your customer base through a variety of technologies, enhancing user experience and satisfaction.
  • Cost Efficiency: Pay only for the components you need, making it a cost-effective solution for businesses of all sizes.
  • Scalability: Scale your solutions as needed without the need to change or drastically reconfigure your technology. Need to add a new marketing automation platform? Choose your favorite and integrate as a part of your composable DXP.  

How Marcel Digital Implements a Composable DXP Strategy

At Marcel Digital, our approach to implementing a Composable DXP strategy starts with developing a custom Umbraco website tailored to your business needs. As a 10-year Gold Partner with Umbraco, we leverage the platform's flexibility and robust features to serve as the foundation of your Composable DXP.

Once the Umbraco website is in place, we focus on extending its capabilities through API integrations with your existing marketing stack. Whether you have a specific CRM, e-commerce platform, or other marketing tools you wish to keep, we ensure seamless integration to create a cohesive and powerful digital experience.

This two-pronged approach—building a custom Umbraco website and integrating it with your existing tools—ensures that you get a Composable DXP that is not only flexible and scalable but also perfectly aligned with your specific business goals and requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

The implementation time for a Composable DXP can vary depending on the complexity of your needs and the components you choose to include. However, one of the key advantages of a Composable DXP is its modular nature, which generally allows for quicker deployment compared to traditional DXPs. At Marcel Digital, our expertise in Umbraco and API integrations enables us to implement Composable DXP solutions in a time-efficient manner.

The cost of implementing a Composable DXP depends on various factors, including the number and type of components you wish to integrate, the complexity of your existing digital landscape, and any custom development that may be required. The modular nature of Composable DXP allows you to only pay for the components you actually use, making it a cost-effective solution. For a detailed quote tailored to your specific needs, we recommend scheduling a consultation with us.

Non-composable DXPs are usually monolithic systems built by a single vendor. These platforms come with a fixed set of features and capabilities, and you cannot easily replace apps or add new ones. This lack of flexibility can make it challenging to adapt the platform to meet evolving business needs or to integrate it with other tools and systems.

I went with Marcel Digital over a larger - and much higher priced - competitor and it's one of the best decisions I've made. Marcel Digital are lovely people to deal with, extremely knowledgeable and approachable and willing to take the time to examine possible solutions that differ from how they would normally proceed. I value the partnership with their company and am planning on having our company be a client of theirs for years to come. Can't recommend them enough.

Marcel was an excellent thought partner in the evaluation process as we considered major changes to our systems and website. They were willing to engage on many concerns and worries we had approaching the project. Thanks to their help, we felt confident that our concerns could be planned for, and that we had selected the right system for the changes we wanted to make. Their subject matter expertise and client care were exactly what we had hoped for.
