Headless & Jamstack Development

Tired of your clunky, monolithic proprietary system? A headless DXP architecture focuses on best of breed tools and skills, enabling agile workflows, SEO-optimized presentation and lightening fast user interfaces.

What is Headless Development?

In a traditional DXP (Digital Experience Platform), the presentation of your site is generated by and linked directly to the DXP itself. Rejecting the chains of proprietary systems, headless development frees site presentation from the clutches of back-end systems. It is important to note that headless development does not require a headless-only DXP to implement. Many DXPs that support traditional presentation development can support headless development as well. Headless development at its simplest contains the following elements:

  • The business logic of your DXP is expressed through an API
  • That API handles delivering content to your decoupled presentation layer
  • Your decoupled presentation layer can be whatever best-of-breed technology you prefer

What are the Benefits?

Here’s some highlights.

  • The flexibility to choose best-of-breed tools
  • Massive improvements in user interface performance, reliability and scalability
  • Hire staff with general technical skills vs. proprietary platform skills
  • Improved agility – decouple front-end development from back office development cycles
  • Better security via reduced external systems exposure

It’s Incremental

A move to headless development doesn’t require you to toss earlier work in the trash.

Headless is a good neighbor and can live in harmony with others & that includes your current code and projects.

You can dip a toe into the headless waters to see how you like it before implementing it in a wider way. Not a problem! Our team can help you plan and execute a headless strategy that you can build on over time.

Where Does Jamstack Fit?

Jamstack is a variation of the headless architecture. The JAM in Jamstack stands for Javascript, APIs and Markup.

  • Javascript – The Javascript-based framework (React, Vue, etc) used by your decoupled headless front-end
  • APIs – APIs consumed by your front-end, both from your CMS but also from any other tools
  • Markup – Jamstack separates dynamic content from pre-built markup. This approach has many benefits for performance and scalability

Whether you are looking to go with Jamstack or would like to approach headless development in a different way, our team can help.
