Emergence of Headless CMS
Traditional CMS have often been designed for developers, but can be challenging for editors or marketers to use. This is due to the limitations of visualising content changes. The “headless” CMS comes from the concept of splitting the “head” (what the content looks and where it appears e.g. the website) from the “body.” (The back end, i.e. the content repository). As a result, the content can be published to any channel and designed to look as required. The Headless concepts (CMS and commerce) is becoming increasingly attractive to many brands and retailers.
Storyblok’s says its CMS provides highly customisable content blocks and visual editing tools. It claims it is the first headless CMS to integrate these features directly into a modern headless architecture.
Matt Riley, Associate Director of Development at Campbell Ewald, said: “At Campbell Ewald we value speed-to-market and efficiency. With Storyblok we can knock out high-quality work quickly. We’re excited to use it on upcoming client projects.”
Earlier in the year, Storyblok raised $8.5 million in Series A investment to fund international expansion. The company intends to develop new functionalities on its platform, introducing new features including a new custom design system for third parties. In addition to agency partner listing, geo-location filtering, and typed GraphQL support. Storyblok intends to grow its international team and begin its global expansion. The company will open sales offices in Germany and Ireland in the coming months.
