Sitecore XM Cloud and SXA

Accelerate your time to market with a next-generation interface

Your CMS shouldn’t keep you from responding to your customers’ needs in real-time. With Sitecore Experience Accelerator (SXA), content, design, and development work streams run in parallel, empowering your teams to respond to market changes when they happen.

SXA is a complimentary add-on available for Sitecore Experience Manager (XM) and Sitecore Experience Platform (XP). Once integrated, create beautiful and lead-generating pages for your site with little to no CMS coding. 

SXA - Workflow

The tool also gives your team more control over their workflows and speeds up development through reusable pre-built components, templates, and themes. What's more? Enjoy unparalleled creative flexibility without relying on developers to make coded changes.
