TYPO3 is a powerful system with a broad range of possible use cases—however, it is not the jack of all trades. Its strength is content-rich websites created by trained editors; things like a community focused on users and their interactions might be better done with a software specialized on that purpose.
This exam objective highlights the use cases where TYPO3 shines and offers some advice on ways to circumvent the limitations, e.g. by integrating with third-party systems. It does not require detailed knowledge about each integration technology, but you should have a sound understanding e.g. of the differences between using an external API and synchronizing database rows.
This objective has a very broad focus, probably the most extensive of the whole exam, and will require you to know about the typical use cases of TYPO3 and widely used integrations with external systems. Case studies on typo3.org or the websites of the major TYPO3 agencies might be a good starting point to get an impression here.
Possible exam topics include:
- Dealing with requirements for things like a blog, shop, etc. in a TYPO3 website
- Ways for integrating a third-party system with TYPO3
- Migrating content between TYPO3 instances
- More advanced backend features of TYPO3
- Staging and publishing content on a TYPO3 website
