Jumpstart Your Local AEM Development Environments and Processes with Initialyze Spark
The Challenge
Setting up AEM infrastructure and development environments consistently across your entire dev team is one of the most common challenges we’ve seen across the 100’s of customers we’ve helped. Developers often run inconsistent local environments with different JDKs, service packs, patches, and content. The result -- countless hours wasted due to handholding, troubleshooting, downloading content and re-building instances. All these inefficiencies lead to inefficient teams, poor implementations, and ultimately poor experiences for internal business users as well as customers. We've often witness the following challenges

Arduous developer onboarding & local environment set-up - require handholding and support from leads and developers

Inconsistent environments - leads to hours spent troubleshooting phantom issues.

Front-end & QA leads not familiar with setting up AEM require even more hand-holding

Getting production content - no streamlined process for getting content locally or lower environments

Bugs and issues get discovered in higher environments
