Uniform has announced the availability of a composable digital experience platform (DXP). Company officials say the platform gives marketers, merchandisers and developers a vendor-agnostic, composable DXP for which they can choose their own technology stack. Marketers and merchandisers can use no-code tools to build personalized, omnichannel digital experiences that blend content from multiple sources, including content management and commerce systems, according to company officials.
Developers can build a front-end using their preferred libraries and frameworks and leverage content delivery networks (CDNs) and edge-computing platforms. Smart Grid technology enables brands to connect their existing legacy systems to new, headless systems that use Jamstack or MACH architectures.
"Uniform sits one layer below the technologies that a brand uses," Alex Shyba, Uniform CTO and co-founder, said. "This simplifies switching applications because in a composable system, you can add/remove/replace components without touching the rest of the stack. In designing this, we realized we can orchestrate across the systems in the stack, even if those systems come from multiple vendors."
