Headless Architecture: The New Normal

Headless Means Agility

The customer experience you deliver today has probably become your key differentiator.  To continue to effectively meet your customer’s ever-changing demands, your underpinning technology must provide incredible flexibility and agility.

A Headless/MACH/Composable Architecture means that you can take your customer insights and use them to drive a decoupled front-end (UX and creative) that will never be constrained by your back-end systems.

But the impact goes beyond just what the customer experiences. A Headless Architecture also enables things such as:

  • Gradual extinction of legacy systems as budgets and/or internal business readiness allows (microservices)
  • Content that can be “created once, distributed anywhere” eliminating duplicate efforts
  • Auto-scaling that smooth out peak traffic spikes

Here is our monthly curated list of thought-provoking articles, blog posts, and videos on Headless Architecture:
