Empowering digital experiences, redefining content management.
A headless Content Management System (CMS) decouples the backend content management functionality from the frontend delivery of that content. Content can then be delivered to any type of device or application, without being tied to a specific web or mobile interface. Seperating the administrative and delivery layers of a website allows organisations to focus on the content. No more thinking about security updates, performance optimisations or hosting. Just content. Better yet a headless CMS can be used to deliver content to multiple channels. A single source of truth for all your websites, applications, e-mails and more.
Benefits of headless websites
Better for content editors
Approval workflows, in page visual editing and optional AI powered content suggestions make it easier than ever to manage your content.
Developers love working with headless CMS. It allows them to use the best tools for the job, rather than being tied to a specific technology stack.
Omnichannel content delivery
Instead of implementing multiple, parallel content management system instances, e.g., to support web and mobile channels. A single headless CMS instance can serve unlimited digital channels.
Monolithic CMS vs Headless CMS
Monolithic CMS are built as a single application, with the frontend and backend tightly coupled together. This means that the frontend and backend are dependent on each other, and any changes to the frontend or backend will affect the other. This makes it difficult to scale and update the application. Headless CMS are built as two separate applications, with the frontend and backend decoupled. This means that the frontend and backend are independent of each other, and any changes to the frontend or backend will not affect the other. This makes it easy to scale and update the application.
- Easy to get started, but difficult to reliably scale
- Open source, but self-hosted means you need to manage the infrastructure and security
- Single codebase, so you are tied to a specific technology stack
- Easy to scale, caching and CDN support out of the box
- Great selection of open source and SaaS options
- Decoupled architecture, so you can use the best tools for the job
