CMSWire

Jahia hosted its annual user conference in Paris Oct. 4 to Oct. 5, and unveiled a slew of updates. Up first, Jahia’s Digital Experience Manager has been updated. Jahia DX 7.3 brings a new and simplified version of its Anthracite interface, which should provide users with “a better overall experience working on the platform,” according to Julie Asselin, Jahia’s Creative Director

Additional features include:

New headless capabilities — The Jahia Content and Media Manager, located inside Jahia DX, is now a “full-blown headless CMS,” said Asselin. With it, organizations can deliver personalized content to any channel and for any experience. Content and Media Manager uses its GraphQL API to deliver content creation, localization, aggregation and media management natively.

Content & Media Manager integrated with Jahia’s Marketing Factory — To enable personalization and testing along with headless content delivery, Jahia has integrated its Content and Media Manager with its Marketing Factory module.

Advanced localization with Local Site Manager — Jahia’s Local Site Manager (LSM) now enables users to reuse pages and content from one site to another. Global companies with a multitude of region-specific websites can now reuse either a whole website, a few pages, or specific content items in one or several languages.

Introducing Commerce IO — Commerce IO is a new Jahia connector that integrates with legacy platforms and ecommerce systems such as Hybris. Commerce IO is designed to give marketers the tools to deliver the personalized, end-to-end customer experiences they need without further burdening their IT department. 

Elasticsearch Integration — Elasticsearch is now available as a fully-integrated module for all Jahia products.

In other Jahia news, Marketing Factory 1.10 was released. Marketing Factory constitutes Jahia’s personalization and A/B testing module, embedded into its DX Platform. The new update brings about third-party analytics tracking for Jahia-delivered sites, enabling truly headless personalization. Plus, Marketing Factory’s integrated Customer Data Platform is available on the new Jahia Cloud.
