This document contains a technical introduction to Digital Experience Manager. It is designed to help readers with technical skills such as integrators, developers, testers or others as a starting point into the platform. It is not meant to be a user's guide or an administration's guide. Please refer to the corresponding documents if that is what you are looking for.

This document has five sections:

  • An overview of Digital Experience Manager: what it is, the different types of actors involved, technical requirements, integrated technologies and frameworks.
  • The web layer, which is a description of the layer exposed to the browser, and how it relates to the various components in Digital Experience Manager; how they may be composed to build powerful web applications.
  • The back-end layer, which contains a description of all the different services and technologies available in Digital Experience Manager. This back-end is used by the web layer but may also be in some cases used directly by integrators, such as in the case of integrating custom workflows.
  • A section about performances, and how Digital Experience Manager addresses the very demanding high-load scenarios.
  • Finally, a section that describes the additional resources available to developers and integrators, from online resources to commercial support contracts.
