Headless content management systems (CMS)


Server-less content management in the cloud for multimedia and multi-channel publication

Expensive CMS upgrades are a thing of the past

A headless content management system (CMS) allows server-less content management in the cloud. Traditional CMS systems manage all of your back-end content, code, templates, and plugins—as well as your front-end HTML pages. Headless CMS systems keep everything intact on the back end, but adds an API to deliver your content to any channel, via any media on the front end.
