The tools utilized by developers and content authors are critical to create superior digital experiences. Asponte Technology created a series of developer tools known as Xtreme Developer Tools (XDT), designed to increase the capabilities of the HCL Digital Experience (DX) platform / IBM WebSphere Portal.
The Genesis of XDT
Asponte embarked on a journey to create a set of tools that could address these challenges, identifying the diverse digital content management and web development challenges faced by every organization. The result was the XDT suite, a collection of tools designed to enhance productivity and streamline digital workflows for WCM users.
Enhancing User and Developer Experience
The XDT suite utilizes a user-centric design philosophy that enables digital content management through its easy-to-use interfaces. For developers, the Custom Authoring Tools and WCM Widgets significantly enhance their capabilities, making the creation and management of digital content more straightforward.
Seamless integration is a hallmark of the XDT suite. Whether it’s linking videos from public streaming services through Video Manager or ensuring secure rendering of WCM content, the integrative capabilities of XDT tools extend the functionalities of the HCL DX platform.
