Software solutions built with a headless architecture separate the front-end interface from the back-end functionality, allowing flexible and effective integration of applications. For example, a headless CMS or headless digital asset management is used for modelling, capturing and managing content; but the presentation of this content is left to specialised applications. These applications (e.g. websites, mobile apps, social media channels, online marketplaces, etc.) obtain the content from interfaces (API or application programming interfaces) of the respective headless software. Via the APIs, companies can thus build networked systems that exchange or distribute content and information between the different applications (such as a CRM, a CMS or a PIM system) for marketing and publication activities.
In many companies, a number of software components that build on each other form a platform that is used to run a common application. The totality of these different components is called a "software stack". Although this suggests a clean structure of interconnected software tools and processes, unfortunately this is often not the case in practice. Silos continue to exist among staff, between different teams or even when working with external service providers, and disconnected software solutions are used. Collaborations and processes that lead to silos are inefficient, risky and lead to a lower return on investment. This is especially true in IT landscapes where the software solutions used are intended to increase speed and capacity. Headless architectures and APIs help companies free themselves from restrictive and prescriptive architectures and build a customised ecosystem in which the various software solutions are seamlessly integrated.
The headless architecture is particularly relevant for those who want to take an omnichannel approach to delivering content to their users. It is also suitable for managing and delivering digital assets and for centrally managing and publishing content across multiple channels. Perfect for high-performance digital applications, it offers developers a solid way to deploy their front-ends more freely and without compromise. As projects become more complex, the need for reliable development solutions has grown significantly in recent years. With a headless architecture, companies gain full control over their data and can customise their APIs as needed.
The headless architecture allows development to ensure that content is managed efficiently and that it can be made available across channels. This creates the flexibility for companies to build their own software stack and use their preferred tools. This greatly accelerates and professionalises the management and delivery of content and products.
There are important indicators that a company must consider when purchasing a headless software solution such as a CMS or digital asset management. Basic answers as to whether headless fits as an architecture model must be provided by the following questions, such as the complexity and the number of sales or communication channels (B2B, B2C, social commerce, etc.) or how the IT landscape is generally set up and how many peripheral systems such as CMS, CRM, DAM and PIM have already been implemented or will be implemented in the future. The synergies increase with each third-party system and this results in many advantages that can be gained from the headless approach.
