Wordpress released in 2003, and this was a huge leap forward in the democratization of the web. Wordpress was easy to use, and had multiple ready made templates to help you express your brand better. ‘Hosted Wordpress’ solutions ensured that even non technical users were able to manage their own content online.
And this shows: Wordpress still powers about 30% of the internet.
This was primarily due to three factors:
A Headless CMS removes the presentation layer from your CMS. Instead, your CMS only manages content, and outputs this content via APIs, allowing you to build multiple consumer channels, including your website. This technique is known as Content as a Service, and solves multiple of the above problems.
Even better, keeping a standard set of APIs opens the possibility to outsource your CMS, drastically reducing your IT costs.
Quintype uses all of these benefits by providing your CMS as a service. We manage your entire publishing stack, from infra and maintenance, to recommendations around SEO. Thanks to the decoupled nature of our CMS, we find that our publishers are able to go live with a gorgeous, offline first version of their sites in a matter of days, where it earlier took months.
