Adobe Experience Manager as a Cloud Service has taken the AEM tech space by storm this year and has garnered most of the attention. However, before AEM as a Cloud Service came into the picture, a significant implementation approach was introduced: Digital Foundation Blueprint. While Adobe has only started to promote it, we wanted to discuss this new implementation process and show how it can achieve successful outcomes at even faster speeds.
The intention is to bypass older, and in some cases, almost outdated processes that use heavy customization as the norm and leverage a refreshed set of Adobe's best practices. By using the most beneficial approaches like Digital Foundation Blueprint, we can give clients the advantage of a speedier go-live, and thus the benefit of time. What makes this method so appealing? If you have a marketing or product goal that has been set but seems unrealistic given a tight deadline—this new method provides guidelines to complete an AEM site within 90 days.
Adobe's Digital Foundation Blueprint is a holistic approach that differs from the typical workflow by defining a two-phase process compatible with AEM as a Cloud Service, Adobe Managed Services, and self-hosted infrastructures.
