AEM with WordPress

It’s surprising how often companies use WordPress alongside Adobe Experience Manager (AEM). Some of the biggest corporations such as Cloudera and Informatica are using AEM for their main website, while they’re using WordPress for their blog. That allows them to benefit from the best aspects of both systems.

While AEM leads the category of content management systems in many ways, WordPress offers one of the most productive interfaces for writing and publishing blog posts. New authors can quickly learn how to use WordPress, and it’s straightforward to optimize content for search engines (SEO) and prepare it for social media. If both systems are integrated well, processes will be even easier and faster. Here are the main areas for integrating AEM with WordPress:

  • User management: Single-sign on lets users have one secure account across all systems.
  • REST API: Utilize data from WordPress within your AEM components, for example by requesting recent blog posts. AEM enables us to request data server-side and cache the data.
  • Asset management: Store all media in one place and make it accessible in both systems.
  • eCommerce: Manage shop items and orders in one system but display them in another.

Our deep understanding of Adobe Experience Manager enables us to build integrations that other “experts” can’t. Check out our case studies to see how we integrated Magento and Solr.
