What sets Kontent.ai apart?

When choosing a content management approach for your teams, it’s key to make a clear decision upfront: do you go with a headless CMS like Kontent.ai or a Digital Experience Platform? Here, learn why more and more enterprises are opting to go headless.

An expert content solution or an all-in-one?

Traditional CMSs and Digital Experience Platforms (DXPs) have evolved into all-encompassing monolithic solutions that include functionality for marketing automation and commerce. However, for many enterprises who already use best-of-breed solutions in these disciplines, a headless CMS like Kontent.ai – one that’s focused solely on content – is often the right call for long-term success and agility.
