In 22.4, new capabilities in OpenText Experience Cloud, make it faster and easier to increase relevancy, consistency and responsiveness across the entire customer journey with two new must-have solutions to solve for Customer Experience Management (CXM) and Digital Experience Management (DXM) use cases. Delivered in a unified environment, these solutions bring together key capabilities across OpenText applications Exstream (CCM), TeamSite (WCM/CMS), Media Management (DAM), Experience CDP, and Core Experience Insights, all within a composable platform out of the box.
