Blog Headless CMS
With a content management system, you manage dynamic content on your website without any problems. To manage multi-sites (websites, mobile sites, apps, intranet, ...) as an enterprise, a simple CMS like Wordpress and Sitecore is not enough. That's where headless CMS comes in with the solution.
Wondering why companies like VAR (the advertising arm of VRT) are increasingly opting for a 'headless' content management system? We briefly explain.
Tell me more!
'Headless' CMS gets its name from the decoupling of the "header" and the "body". Imagine it like this: the back end of your website is no longer in the same codebase as the front end, the visual part.
You manage all content in a central place for different channels and post them online in a few steps. Modifying or placing content on your website, offline channels, social media, apps, internal platforms, ... has never been easier.

JSON based API
Through APIs in JSON format, content is sent from the content management system to the various devices.
A headless content management system is stored in the cloud. This means you don't have to maintain servers yourself and they can be accessed from all over the world.
In addition, you save a lot of time with the help of building blocks. Specifically, you only need to set up a content block once and then easily reuse it afterwards with just one click. So you easily establish relationships between different content pieces.
In terms of project management, a headless CMS like Contentful also offers many advantages. For instance, within a workflow, you respond to each other quickly and effectively and the set-up requires little effort and time. So setting up a new project requires little time and preparation.
