Twitter Chat Reveals – Is headless CMS signaling the end of WCM?
By Kellsey Ruppel-Oracle on Apr 21, 2017
On April 20, @oraclewebcenter hosted a live Twitter Chat at #contentdgtl. The topic – Is headless CMS signaling the end of WCM?
Decoupled CMS architecture (aka “headless”) is rising in popularity in the development world. This model allows breakthrough user experiences, gives developers great flexibility to innovate, and helps site owners future-proof their builds by allowing them to refresh the design without re-implementing the whole CMS. With all this upside, it’s no wonder this type of build has gained serious traction.
With that in mind, the live Twitter discussion focused on the topic of headless CMS and whether companies need to be thinking about it. The Twitter Chat explored headless CMS vs. WCM and use cases of when it makes sense to use one or the other. Industry thought leaders including Melissa Webster from IDC, Dave Gray from Xplaner.com, numerous partners and more participated in this very engaging discussion. The interaction ranged from the benefits of headless CMS to both the developer and business, to things to watch for with headless CMS and ended with best practice recommendations for content production, management & delivery in a cloud world.
From serious musings to light hearted commentary (including this pic that Tanu Sood shared), the Twitter Chat proved to be a great meeting of minds.
Even if you participated, you may have missed portions of the live discussion so we have curated the chat here; it might be worth going back and following the discussion.
One of my personal favorites was a tweet from Carlos Picazo (@carlines) that said "in a few years, we will have even more connected than today and content is key, Internet of People!"
