Headless content management gives you speed and flexibility

When deciding between a traditional and a headless CMS, it’s essential to find a solution that will help you work smarter, not harder. Your days are already busy enough, so think about where you can save some time while still creating the most engaging content.

A traditional CMS manages both the content and presentation logic, and outputs fully formatted HTML. It’s easy to publish to a single channel like a website. However, as content needs expand across multiple channels, brands, and geographies, the content production cycle can get out of hand. And it can often require more time, energy, and resources as efforts need to be duplicated.

A headless CMS separates content from the presentation layer — the head. It creates blocks of channel-neutral content and uses APIs to present the same material across platforms and devices. Because it can use any front end to display content, you don’t need to create new code for every experience. A headless CMS eliminates redundancies by unifying content in a single hub, making it easier to scale and display through virtually any application without losing quality and delivering a better overall customer experience.
