What's the difference between headless CMS and content infrastructure?

Headless CMS Architecture makes content reusable

Traditional CMS — content management systems — mash up content and formatting for a single purpose, making that content impossible to reuse in other digital products. Headless CMS fixes that problem, keeping content and presentation separate. Unlike headless and decoupled CMSes, where you might struggle to fit your content into predefined categories, content infrastructure lets you create a tailored model from the get-go.

Content infrastructure goes beyond Cloud-first Headless CMS

Content infrastructure has the benefits of headless, but also unifies all of your content in a single, structured repository. Now, you can develop digital products and edit their content simultaneously, and control everything from a unified hub. Your content model is purpose-built — it's defined by you, so it perfectly fits your needs. We're cloud-native, API-first, and loved by digital teams at some of the world's leading brands.
