We’ll build your beautiful website powered by robust API architecture in no time. An amazing modern digital experience is just around the corner.
Creating high-quality content is a perfect way to grow your business, reach new customers, and provide them with a superior digital experience. Therefore, the CMS industry market has been rapidly growing, especially in the past-COVID world. Unfortunately, most web CMS software is not designed to support the need to manage content for multiple channels and experiences.
Traditional content management systems assume that all pages for screens are built and managed in the CMS. This is why at Liki, we provide our clients with a strategic approach that separates the management of content from where and how it is displayed – a headless CMS.
A headless Content Management System is a system that separates where content is stored from where it is presented. The content can be stored in the CMS and then sent to display anywhere, which offers a lot more flexibility as to how the content is presented in different places. The ‘head’ relates to where your content ends up and the ‘body’ is where your content is stored and authored. A headless CMS is any type of back-end content management system where the content ‘body’ is separated or decoupled from the presentation layer – the ‘head’ (decoupled CMS). Simply speaking, a headless CMS allows you to manage content in one place and still be able to deploy it across any front end you choose. You don’t need to build the backend operation with the front end for only one source. Instead, you deliver content to any device, app, or browser via API.
The point of headless CMS is that you can choose which heads you send your content to. It works best for the mentioned use cases, but not only. Let's discuss your digital project.
Traditional content management systems have been around since the early days of web development. They store and present content elements like text, images, and video on websites. So, the main difference between a headless CMS and traditional CMS is that the traditional one offers back-end functionality only. A headless CMS offers an all-in-one solution for managing content and the presentation layer.
A headless CMS gives you an interface for managing content and provides that content via APIs for developers to query and build apps with. APIs consume data through REST or GraphQL languages. As a result, the content inside the system is no longer tied to a particular template or delivery layout. Instead, it can be easily sent to any channel or device using API. This architecture means that you can send data to any part of the network after a request has been made to the content repository.
Most headless content management systems are offered as Software as a Service – you have to log into a web app and the APIs are hosted in a cloud-based backend.
Headless CMS have multiple benefits. This is what it’s for your business:
Content editing takes no time
You don’t have to spend resources on editing and rendering. A pure headless CMS doesn’t have to deal with the rendering side of things. On top of that, content is ready for all digital channels at once.
You can manage content for more channels
Content editors can easily manage content for apps and websites.
Your development team can choose their own frontend tooling and interchange parts of their stack without affecting the CMS. A headless CMS minimizes restrictions caused by predefined components like layouts, formats, and templates while maintaining content consistency.
You can use the CMS API to query for various operating systems like Linux, Windows, Android, macOS, and an embedded OS for IoT devices.
Performance is boosted
When you go for a headless CMS, you don’t have the overhead of the CMS app on every web server. This improves the speed of the delivery tier.
Scaling is easier
You can manage your digital content from a single source of truth and change developer tools at any time. Most headless CMS options are highly scalable, and they deliver little to no downtime during maintenance. On top of that, a headless CMS offers enhanced security – the content publishing platform isn’t accessible from the CMS database as they are separated on different web servers and domains.
