Cloud Connected



"I have been searching for a product like Cloud CMS for over 10 years.

After false starts with some typical content management solutions, we were finally able to design the content repository that our business required."

Finding sanity by losing your head

There was a lot of chatter last year regarding a “headless” or “decoupled” CMS design.  Zeitgeist, maybe… countermovement, definitely.

Since their inception, every expansion of content management software along the continuum from managing basic websites to full-on digital experiences drove CMSes further and further into the application’s presentation tier.

In parallel, we witnessed the maturity of frameworks such as Angular, Ember, and Ionic (just to name a few) - all pushing development out to the browser tier itself, and each one clashing with the template-driven approach ordained by any underlying CMS.

As a result, it’s become fashionable to lose one’s head.

Monolithic CMS vendors are now re-engineering their approach.  Varying levels of RESTful calls are surfacing to placate the JavaScript hungry masses.  Naturally, this journey carries risks - enough that companies keen to succeed are exploring alternatives.

And finding that an API-first solution makes for a more natural fit.

By definition, API-first is headless.  Nothing needs to be “decoupled”, but rather a pure CMS service is made available that blends naturally with your selected framework, whether for a:

  • Static site
  • JS Application
  • Single-page app
  • Mobile app

or a combination of the above.  Need proof, easy.  Just review our SDK packages, or better yet - sign up for a Free Trial.
