Axis41 Turns Expertise into Specialization


Topics: Adobe Experience Manager

For over three years, Axis41 has been performing successful Adobe Experience Manager implementations for our many industry-leading clients, including Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care, Lampo Group, Zions Bank, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, OC Tanner and most recently Browning Arms.

We now have another way to set ourselves apart and take our Adobe Experience Manager implementations to the next level. Axis41 has officially earned Adobe Specialization in Adobe Experience Manager implementations.

Why Specialization?

Specialization is a prestigious distinguishment in the Adobe ecosystem that recognizes those partners who have demonstrated an ability to deliver quality Adobe Solution implementations. Specialized partners are “the best of the best,” as Adobe puts it, poised at the forefront of Adobe Solution management. In Axis41’s case, that means we are now more capable than ever to take on web marketing’s greatest challenges.

Adobe Experience Manager is “absolutely crucial to the success of our customers,” explains Axis41 project manager, Stefen Hofmeister. “We know that a strong platform like AEM is the key to flawless web content management, which is why we’ve been laser-focused on gaining our AEM specialization for the last few years.”

What does it take to be specialized?

To become Adobe Specialized, an organization has to have a certain number of certified Adobe experts. Certification itself requires stringent training and extensive testing. Adobe requires a minimum of 12 certified employees for an organization to become Adobe Specialized. That number includes 6 developers, 2 sales representatives, 3 business practitioners and 1 architect. Axis41 gained special permission from Adobe to hold in-house Adobe Experience Manager testing through a trained Axis41 proctor to train and test as many Adobe experts as possible while working towards Adobe Specialization in AEM.

As of today, Axis41 has over double the number of certified experts that Adobe requires for Specialization.  As of today, we have 26 Adobe certified AEM experts. That includes 14 developers, 3 sales representatives, 6 business practitioners and 3 architects. With our new Adobe Specialized status, we expect that number to grow and quickly.

How is Axis41 using their new specialized status?

Specialization has given Axis41 an even deeper look into the AEM experience. “It means we can write more efficient code that will work better in programs provided by Adobe, and it opens doors to a staggering amount of new and better marketing and brand management methods we can share with our clients,” says Hofmeister. In short, we are able to help our clients turn Adobe Experience Manager into a more valuable asset.

As a digital marketing agency and Adobe business-level partner, we take our AEM implementations to a new level with fully integrated creative and development teams that to work together throughout each and every implementation. Armed with industry knowledge and Adobe expertise, we are able to help our clients tackle the massive undertaking of a CMS implementation. With our team of trained experts, we can get Adobe Experience Manager up and running quickly and smoothly.
