I’ll be leading a lab at Adobe Summit this year that helps to tighten the integration between Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) and Adobe Experience Manager (AEM). AEM has had the ability to manage and publish content to DPS for a couple of years now, and customers are having great success using AEM as a templated design surface on which to make DPS folios.
Customers who want to leverage DPS Entitlement have had to build or buy a solution that usually but not always runs on a Apache with PHP/MySQL. The Adobe DPS Developer portal has several examples, including a great starter kit. Customers have been asking, though, how to use the user management built in to AEM to manage entitlement.
In addition, DPS apps often have custom Libraries and Storefronts, which are basically HTML portals that interact with the DPS app and the DPS Services to provide a customized experience in the app. Customers also will build or buy custom Library/Storefront solutions based on the DPS Library APIs.
My lab at Summit, presented with my good friend Herman Lee of Ensemble Systems, shows how to use AEM to both manage DPS entitlement and to create and manage custom Library/Storefront code. AEM is an excellent design surface for this, with its flexible component architecture and its ability to integrate with Enterprise Identity management solutions. The session is “L709 – Implement an Adobe Digital Publishing Suite storefront in Experience Manager” and it takes place on Tuesday Afternoon at 1:30 to 3:30 Utah time. If you’re going to Summit, sign up today for my lab and learn how to get even more value out of your AEM and DPS investments. You’ll need to login to the Summit site in order to register.
