Ibexa DXP is a technology platform that Ibexa builds. At the heart of the technology is a server side application framework that can be hosted either on premise, in the cloud or on the fully managed Ibexa Cloud PaaS.
Developers can develop using the Symfony / PHP stack in the backend, or use the system decoupled from the backend using the extensive GraphQL and REST APIs.
With the HTTP APIs Ibexa DXP can connect to other backend systems on the Cloud, mobile apps on on the front end using or web technologies like Angular, React or Vue.
Ibexa DXP is the foundation for three products: Ibexa Content, Ibexa Experience and Ibexa Commerce. In addition we have an integrated PaaS offering in the form of Ibexa Cloud. Our core technology is available under the GPL in the form of Ibexa Open Source.
Ibexa Content is a multichannel and headless CMS (Content Management System) designed for marketing, e-commerce and self-service apps. It is designed for organizations who need to create content hubs and content services to use as a core component of their digital platform and services, and deliver content to any channel.
Ibexa Experience is a modern modular Digital Experience Platform (DXP) to build outstanding customer experiences. It is designed for customer-centric companies and organizations who want to go beyond managing content and creating websites but want to create frictionless memorable experiences for their customers and partners.
Ibexa Commerce is a commerce-ready B2B DXP designed to digitalize your business from customer awareness to purchase and beyond. It is designed for companies who need to transform the way they sell and who want to conduct business online, including the digitalization and automation of the business transactions.
Ibexa Cloud is an end-to-end cloud hosting platform for your Ibexa DXP software for more efficient development-to-production processes. With streamlined back-end infrastructure and services, your dev team can work more efficiently and deliver faster at every stage.
Ibexa Open Source
Ibexa Open Source is our core technology that Ibexa DXP is built on. It is built on other open source technologies like Symfony and React.js. The distribution is fully functional, but there is no commercial support from Ibexa. Functionality is also limited compared to Ibexa Content, Experience and Commerce.

Connect to external systems with APIs
Ibexa DXP products are often deployed in microservices architectures. In this model there are many specialized services for individual tasks. Examples could be integrating with enterprise services like getting user segmentation data from CRM or get prices from an ERP backend.
Nowadays with JAMStack platforms like Gatsby and a wealth of SaaS (Software as a Service) providers, there is a need for more ad-hoc integrations. For this Ibexa DXP comes with public REST and GraphQL APIs for the Content Engine, e-Commerce and Personalization.
