Do Monoliths Still Trump DXPs?

"The “monoliths” are still very much a part of the DXP market landscape, according to Gartner’s new DXP Magic Quadrant published in February."

"Composable may be the talk of DXPs, but it’s not leading the way on the ground. Most DXPs remain monolithic software (owned by a single platform) and not Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) at their core, according to Gartner," argues Dom Nicastro of CMSWire.com.

That's true, from a numbers perspective.

But after Sitecore's DXP announcement last week, even the monoliths are certain that the future is a SaaS and microservice-based digital experience platform.

Elsewhere in the space, Agility CMS announced a successful start to 2022, Contentrain entered public beta, and Storyblok's VP of Marketing Thomas Peham joined us on another podcast episode of Fireside with DXP Report.
