With mobile traffic pushing aging web architectures to the brink and customers coming to expect compelling digital experiences, more and more engineering teams are turning to headless content management systems (CMS).
A headless CMS uses modern storage, stateless interfaces, and cloud infrastructure to efficiently deliver Internet-scale content experiences on any device.
Drawing on interviews with practitioners and technical experts, the March 2016 Forrester report identifies key features of the headless approach, examines the trade-offs it entails, and highlights its rapid adoption among the "Millennial architects."
"If you have a large engineering team building APIs, and you’re doing native mobile development, then you’ll ‘get’ headless CMS solutions like Contentful."
