Kontent.ai is a Content as a Service (CaaS), or headless CMS offering. A headless (aka ‘decoupled’) CMS is one that allows you to separate the management of your content from the platform that displays it (e.g. website, app, in-store touch screen etc). A headless CMS gives you greater flexibility to create digital experiences beyond the web, and to embrace current and future omni-channel possibilities.

What sort of projects are suitable for Kontent.ai?
Kontent.ai is best suited to projects with one or more of the following characteristics:
- Omni-channel content delivery: Kontent.ai can provide excellent efficiency gains where content needs to be published across a number of channels – such as a website, mobile app and touch screens.
- Composable DXP architecture: Kontent.ai is a dedicated content management microservice. As such, its feature set is limited in comparison to a traditional Digital Experience Platform (DXP). This makes best suited to being combined with other best-of-breed microservices as part of a Composable DXP architecture.
- A need for speed: A headless CMS has the potential for increased speed to market, making it ideally suited to projects that need to launch quickly – for example campaign microsites.
- Design-driven: The flexibility to use any programming language to create a site or app removes technology restrictions and allows for the creation of a completely custom look and feel. This makes it particularly suitable for projects that are heavily design-driven, or governed by strict brand guidelines.
What are the benefits of a headless CMS?
There are a number of key benefits to having the ability to separate content management from content delivery:
- Fast-tracks project timelines: With a traditional CMS, there is a high degree of dependency. In other words, one stage of the process cannot begin until another is complete. With a headless CMS, all members of the team can be working simultaneously, enabling speedier project delivery.
- Allows content to be managed from one location and delivered across multiple channels: A headless CMS eliminates the need to duplicate your content efforts for delivery across multiple channels. It provides a centralised source of content for distribution across a wide range of channels – including websites, mobile applications, touchscreens and a myriad of internet-enabled devices.
- Offers more design flexibility: With a headless CMS, you have the flexibility to create the presentation layer of your digital experience with any tools or programming language you like. So unlike Kentico Xperience, Kontent.ai allows developers to branch out beyond the .NET framework (e.g. PHP, React.js or native apps).
What effect does a headless CMS have on your workflow?
By completely decoupling the CMS from your presentation layer - for example your website or mobile app - there is less stepping on toes, and teams can work concurrently far more effectively.
