Contentful - API-first CMS for all digital channels
Contentful is a modern cloud-native content management system that is ready for the future like no other. Contentful gives its users the tools they need to create and manage their content. Thanks to its headless architecture, developers can use this tool with any programming language, on any platform. As a certified Contentful partner, Dept is equipped to help companies implement and use this tool.
User-friendly solutions with API first focus
The modern digital landscape requires brands to have much more than a simple website. Companies want to offer their customers a uniform, personalised omni-channel experience with websites, apps, chatbots and marketplaces. Contentful offers its customers a user-friendly ‘unified content hub’ for content management across all channels. Developers can also use this tool because it has a powerful API which can be used on any channel, with any programming language. Contentful is also ideally suited to add content management capabilities to existing digital applications, where content changes now need to be made by developers.
As a SaaS, Contentful is built directly in the cloud and therefore also takes advantage of the associated benefits such as scalability, availability and speed. It also eliminates expensive upgrades.
Contentful has the following features which distinguish it as a modern CMS:
- API first: Since API’s are at the core of this system, all content can be accessed via the API’s
- Cloud-Native: Contentful is built in the cloud, which makes the system infinitely scalable and uses cloud services as a standard CDN.
- SaaS Solution: Every Contentful customer uses the same system (just like Gmail, Dropbox, Netflix, Uber or Facebook, for example), so no management is required and upgrades are a thing of the past.
- Headless/Decoupled: The world is changing, we are moving away from monolithic systems and headless is the answer. With headless and best-in-class documentation, Contentful can support even the most complex digital ecosystems.
