The current business landscape is witnessing an increasing number of companies adopting digital platforms by establishing a digital presence from scratch or migrating from traditional systems to modern platforms. Content management systems (CMS), such as Adobe Experience Management (AEM), are driving this shift towards digitalization. However, when organizations have multiple brands and digital marketers require the ability to push changes rapidly, traditional systems become inadequate and can become a bottleneck in achieving the desired outcomes. In this scenario, digital platforms built on content management systems, such as AEM, can provide much-needed scalability, reduce costs, and accelerate delivery for digital marketers. Nonetheless, it is crucial to have a fundamental understanding of these digital platforms, or they can become an overhead in the future. Therefore, grasping the basics of digital platforms is imperative for implementing large-scale transformation projects that utilize content management. Core success factors include comprehending the importance of the foundation layer in digital platforms, distinguishing between platforms and customizations, and allowing flexibility while maintaining branding guidelines.
