What's inside

If you’re a developer using a traditional CMS, there’s a good chance you’re struggling to ship digital products quickly and efficiently. After all, the CMS was created for a different time when the website was the only digital contact point and apps, digital signage, wearables and conversational interfaces didn’t exist. Traditional content management systems (CMSes) can’t always meet these heightened expectations, especially in terms of scalability and flexibility.

Digital leaders are increasingly turning to a new platform to solve their needs: content infrastructure. Content infrastructure is an API-first, modular approach to managing content that integrates a fully editable backend content repository with a flexible, customizable front-end. As a pioneer in developing content infrastructure, Contentful helps to manage and deliver content effectively on any digital platform, including websites, apps, wearables, signage and conversational interfaces.
