You can manage multiple websites, create content, launch websites, and deliver stunning experiences. In order to get access to the XM Cloud portal you have to belong to an ‘Organization’ (your account at Sitecore). Once you’re able to get access on that ‘Organization’ account, you can then start managing your users, provision projects and provision various environments for those projects. The XM Cloud portal is the way to go for easily launching solutions across the Composable DXP (Digital Experience Platform) either as a Sitecore Partner or a Sitecore Customer.
- Headless CMS: XM Cloud also offers various features to create, update and share content within and across these environments or to your various channels, such as websites, apps etc.
