DX Graph - An API-First Data Layer

Conscia's DX Graph™ allows you to create a modern, API-first data layer on top of your existing data sources so that your content and data can be made available for modern experiences via APIs from a centralized repository. Conscia syncs data and content from external content and data repositories into a connected graph that provides a 360 view of all business entities involved in powering a customer experience.

Use Cases

The DX Graph can be used for the following use cases:

  • Modernize Legacy Systems - Encapsulate legacy systems within an API-first data layer that is performant and scalable.
  • Content or Knowledge Graph - A unified and connected view of content from multiple CMSs and content sources
  • Master Data and Product Information Management - A connected view of data from multiple source systems that can be distributed to all downstream channels
  • Enterprise Data Integration Hub - Transform and load data from any backend, including batch files in delimited, json or xml format, transform it to the schema you need, create a single view of all your data and publish it to any downstream channel.
