Headless CMS Development

Headless Content Management Systems (CMS) are the natural solution for enterprise-level businesses looking to create advanced and unique user experiences across multiple digital platforms. By decoupling back-end content from the presentation layer, headless CMS has already allowed multinationals like Spotify and Amazon to capitalise on superior front-end flexibility, browser compatibility and scalability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unlike traditional CMS that combines both back-end content with front-end display, headless CMS decouples the two. This positions headless CMS as a back-end only way of managing content – a content repository where content is retrieved via APIs that render the front-end presentation layer and distribute it to whichever digital channel you need.

Separating the back-end and front-end allows marketers and content editors to focus exclusively on structured content, while front-end developers are free to utilise the best frameworks and tools available to render excellent digital experiences across your website, email marketing, IoT, mobile apps and more.

In this sense, you can always be sure that your content will be optimally adapted for its digital destination.

WordPress can operate as both a traditional and a headless CMS. To access the decoupled configuration, content should be shared via the WordPress REST API.

When and whether you should use a headless CMS will depend on the requirements of your particular brand. If you’re a business that needs to connect with customers at scale by capitalising on omnichannel content delivery, then headless CMS may be for you. We would also recommend that businesses relying on native mobile apps, static site generators and JavaScript frameworks also consider adopting a headless CMS solution.
