Why you don't need a CXM platform


Published on

With so many buzzwords in our industry — like CXM, CEM, WCXM, WEM — it is no wonder that many technology buyers are confused, and many technology vendors exploit that to their advantage.

In this session Irina Guseva will talk about what exactly is CXM and how it applies and, more importantly, doesn’t apply to the discipline of content management. You will learn what differentiates CMSs that have experience management capabilities, and why you should stay away from the so-called “CXM platforms and ”leading CXM vendors”.
