We’ve been using CMS to manage website content for 20+ years. But the world has changed. Today, we live in a multi-channel world. People spend more time using mobile than desktop. Traditional CMS products weren’t built for these scenarios, in most cases, they were built as a coupled CMS for websites.
We need a new breed of CMS that will better support multi-channel digital experiences. Headless approach separates content management and its presentation.
Cloud-first headless CMS provides huge benefits for modern marketers and developers. It’s not just a temporary trend for some niche market, it will change the CMS world over the next five years.
