Run your content as a service with microservices architecture

Introducing content management as a service: Our collection of APIs helps developers manage, integrate, and deliver digital content across all types of clients, devices, and platforms.

Developer-friendly API

Speed up your development cycle. Powerful APIs, well-documented features, and working demos help you prototype with ease and build sophisticated apps faster than ever before.
RESTful API

Microservices architecture
The fully decoupled write & read APIs ensure a fault-tolerant service that evolves without breaking your CMS or apps.
Optimized for speed
Advanced caching techniques are integrated tightly with external CDNs to deliver API payloads in the sub-100 ms range.
Mobile-friendly
Your content will be fully optimized to deliver stellar mobile performance thanks to selective sync, image auto-compression, and support for offline persistence.
