Why Your Organization Should Go Headless, Part 1

Part 1

Background

The traditional CMS systems we know were only built for websites. As a result, they are very channel-centric, which means that your business probably uses different CMS systems for each channel you are present on. But modern businesses are not organized around delivery channels, which is why Contentful offers a more agile technology that can be used broadly across different products and different teams in order to deliver omnichannel experiences. With a headless CMS system, your organization can merge all content into a headless content hub – a true game changer.

Why Go Headless?

How do you know if a headless CMS system is the right choice for your organization? Inspired by, and in collaboration with Contentful, we provide you with 5 insights, which can help you decide whether a headless CMS is right for your organization.

1. You’re using multiple CMS systems. Copying, cutting, and pasting content between a number of different CMS systems are highly inefficient, time-consuming for your team, and have a high risk of inconsistencies. With a headless CMS, you gain speed and improved quality in your work.

2. With a traditional CMS system, developers are distracted from their core functions. If you’re waiting on developers to edit or publish content, that will create unnecessary delays. Additionally, the developers are distracted from their core functions. With a headless CMS, you can create a healthy amount of empowerment and separation, which will benefit all parts of your business.

3. You have a ton of time-consuming workflows. If you have to transfer complex demands into a traditional CMS or manage multiple CMS systems at once, that will most likely result in time-consuming workflows. To compensate for the CMS shortcomings, you have to take on manual work, which slows down the workflow. With a headless CMS, you can streamline your content operations, which saves time and helps you get to market faster.

4. Your traditional CMS requires a specific programming language. If your traditional CMS system requires a specific programming language, it will get more difficult to find and keep developers, as you ultimately limit the talent pool. With a headless CMS, your developers can work in their preferred languages, providing a far more flexible workflow.

5. Your traditional CMS has become a challenge. If your organization uses a traditional CMS system, it can feel like an inflexible box full of barriers. Eventually, it will pose more challenges than enabling opportunities. With a headless CMS, the barriers are removed, as the content is made more flexible and accessible wherever you want to use it.

We hope that these 5 insights have provided you with knowledge about headless and helped you in deciding whether it is the right solution for your organization. Are you curious to know more? Contact us at Kruso, and then we can help you in implementing a headless solution.
