Headless CMS / Decoupled CMS

The Content Management System InterRed can also be used as Headless CMS (also Decoupled CMS).

In the past, a CMS was only used to manage a website, but now the requirements have increased. Several websites, apps for smartphones and tablets or even print products: modern content management systems should be able to serve a wide variety of media, output channels and formats.

While a state-of-the-art content management system such as InterRed usually comes with "view" and template engine, a headless CMS consists exclusively of a backend and a database. The information in the database is accessed via API / interfaces, which replace the classic frontend and allows access to it by various programming languages. In this way, there is a strict separation between content management and presentation of the content, which leads to greater flexibility. Content from the CMS can thus be extracted more flexibly and used in various places.

Thanks to the media-neutral data storage that has always been available in InterRed, content is stored and managed independently of the respective output channel. This makes it possible to print in a wide variety of media, e. g. different websites, apps, but also magazines, newspapers or catalogues. This already existing media neutrality offers all the possibilities of a Headless CMS and makes InterRed highly flexible and usable for a wide range of applications.

InterRed GmbH will be pleased to advise you on the suitability of using a Headless / Decoupled CMS.
