What's new in the EPiServer Spring '15 release

On May 27 EPiServer released a new version of the Digital Experience Cloud Platform. What does this new EPiServer version bring us? Cloud and connectivity seems to be the keywords here.

Cloud

“Cloud first” seems to be the way to go. Although the EPiServer Digital Experience Cloud package is presented as a cloud first solution, it can still be deployed on premise. The cloud solution comes with a pay-as-you-go model. Several levels will be available based on page views, number of items and availability. EPiServer Find will be included in the package.

Connectivity

New for EPiServer is the Digital Experience Hub, a technology that was already available in Ektron.
The Digital Experience Hub provides connectors to marketing automation and analytics tools like Salesforce Sales Cloud (formerly Pardot), Oracle Eloqua, Silverpop, Marketo, HubSpot, and Salesforce Marketing Cloud (formerly ExactTarget).
