Get to know headless CMS vendors for the mid-market.
With the growing volume of content you’re working with, it may be time to invest in a content management solution. Interested in headless? Explore some mid-market options suitable for smaller operations.
Benefits of going headless
Today, many organizations rely on a content management solution to ensure that every digital touchpoint they have with customers is engaging and useful.
One type of CMS, a headless CMS, separates the management of content from what it looks like on a website or application. This differs from how traditional CMSs work. With a headless CMS, developers get more flexibility in how content will look, and marketers can create, update, and edit content with minimal developer involvement.
Enable your organization
As more organizations notice the benefits of going headless, you may find that some of the most established vendors, like Kontent.ai, along with Contentstack and Contentful, more deeply cater to large enterprises. This is because the very nature of headless technology easily enables organizations who have:
- More content to manage across more channels
- More complex approval workflows
- A greater use for localization capabilities
- Requirements for content governance and security
Part of a small team? That doesn’t mean your search for the right headless CMS should come to a halt. You can still benefit from some of the key values of a headless CMS, such as developer flexibility and a positive editing experience. So what are some mid-market alternatives?
We’ve put together this quick reference list, so you can more quickly orient your research in the mid-market space and ultimately, select a headless CMS that’s suited to your team size and challenges.
