What is Ensemble?

Ensemble is the Web content management system (CMS) for Virginia Tech. It allows website contributors to update their Web content without worrying about the technical details of creating, editing, and maintaining websites.

Ensemble is powered by Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) and is a joint effort between University Relations and the Division of Information Technology. Percussion Rhythmyx websites were converted to web hosting sites in March 2017. For web hosting support, you will need to file a TeamDynamix ticket instead of a normal Ensemble ticket.
