How does Sitecore Experience Accelerator (SXA) help?

Sitecore Experience Accelerator (SXA) was initially introduced to speed up the process of building websites on Sitecore and to re-use layouts, components, & templates across various sites.  SXA is a feature that separates structure from design, so front-end designers; content authors, creative designers, and developers can work similarly and together. You can also deploy and maintain multiple sites quickly and cost effectively. Once a basic user experience plan is in position, everyone can get started on the platform.

For example: the content author can start by entering the content in the wireframe environment, at the same time the front-end developer can work on the theme, and the developers can set up the data templates.


With Sitecore Experience Accelerator (SXA), you can:

  • Deliver the sites faster using standard functionality with minimum-to-no Sitecore CMS development.
  • Work simultaneously on different work streams.
  • Gather sites using responsive and reusable renderings.
  • Use themes to facilitate brand consistency.
  • Choose between different grid systems.

Sitecore Experience Accelerator (SXA) uses the following concepts:

  • Toolbox
  • Grid and column layout
  • Pluggable themes
  • Page designs and partial designs
  • Creative Exchange
  • Share content and presentation
  • Asset Optimizer
  • Data modeling

Sitecore Experience Accelerator (SXA) enables back-end development, front-end development, and content entry teams to work in parallel.

SXA might be particularly useful:

  • Where businesses want to create pages for micro-sites, specific products, or campaigns SXA can be the ideal choice. SXA has a component based Page builder, which helps content creators to create pages quickly.
  • SXA saves time in a project cycle as front-end development, back-end development and content entry tasks can be performed simultaneously.
  • Sitecore 9 includes SXA components that have sample product catalogs and ecommerce components, which makes it a great tool to design ecommerce sites. It also has features like virtual shopping cart & check out facility.
