Future trends for DXP’s
Digital Experience Platforms (DXPs) have rapidly evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of businesses and consumers. A DXP is an integrated platform that provides businesses with the tools and technologies needed to deliver a seamless and engaging digital experience to their customers, who have visited their website. You can find out more in our previous article about how a DXP can bolster your business.
In this article, we will explore the future trends of DXPs and how they are set to shape the online experiences we have in the future.
1. AI and Machine Learning
One of the most significant trends in the future of DXPs is the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. AI can be used to analyse user behaviour and preferences and provide a personalised experience in real-time.
This level of personalisation can significantly enhance the user experience you’re providing on your website, leading to increased engagement and, ultimately, more people buying and/or becoming a customer of yours. The more your software gets to know your visitors and their behaviour, the more specifically tailored experiences you can provide.
2. Headless Architecture
Another trend in the future of DXPs is the adoption of headless architecture. A headless architecture separates the front-end user interface (i.e. what the user sees on the website) from the backend system (i.e. the technology that drives the website), allowing businesses to create highly customised and flexible digital experiences.
Headless architecture also allows businesses to integrate easily with other systems and technologies, providing a more seamless and integrated user experience.
3. Low-code/No-code Platforms
Low-code/no-code platforms are rapidly gaining popularity as they allow businesses to create digital experiences without needing extensive coding knowledge and/or a developer. These platforms provide pre-built templates, modules, and widgets that businesses can customise to meet their specific needs, reducing the time and cost of development.
This trend is set to continue as more businesses look for ways to streamline their digital experience development processes, being able to adapt their website as a working tool to fit the interests, behaviours, and patterns of their visitors and target audiences with easy solutions.
4. Voice and Visual Search
Voice and visual search are set to become more prevalent in the future of DXPs. Voice search allows users to interact with digital experiences using natural language, while visual search allows users to search for products or information using images.
These technologies will provide businesses with new ways to engage with their customers and improve the user experience; by including this audience, you’re including a wider audience. For those that are visually impaired, this can open doors, helping you provide a more engaging, interactive user experience within your DXP’s.
5. Omnichannel Integration
Finally, the integration of omnichannel capabilities into DXPs is set to become more prevalent in the future. Omnichannel integration allows businesses to provide a consistent and personalised user experience across all their digital touchpoints, including websites, mobile apps, and social media channels.
This will become invaluable within e-commerce experiences, ensuring customers can move forward and backwards in their shopping experience without facing any complications or having to start from the beginning again. By providing this seamless shopping experience, you’re making sales much easier, encouraging more to follow through with their basket to purchase.
This integration will provide businesses with new ways to engage with their customers and improve the overall user experience.
The future of DXPs is exciting, with new technologies and trends set to shape the digital landscape in the coming years. AI and machine learning, headless architecture, low-code/no-code platforms, voice and visual search, and omnichannel integration are just a few of the trends we can expect to see in the future of DXPs.
As businesses continue to focus on creating seamless and engaging digital experiences, the role of DXPs will become increasingly important in driving customer engagement and conversions.
