Getting to the top level is what Hygraph does best.
Today, the next-generation headless CMS announced a major update to its enterprise-grade federated content platform by introducing top-level remote fields.
The new capability is a significant part of Hygraph’s overall federated content vision to power a many-to-many relationship between content sources and devices as organizations look to create new digital services and business models at scale.
“Top-level remote fields empower enterprises to unify distributed content from across multiple systems, to deliver to any destination and without duplication,” said Michael Lukaszczyk, CEO and Co-Founder, Hygraph. “For example, in the context of e-commerce, organizations can now fetch data from their commerce, digital asset management, and CRM systems from Hygraph’s content API in one single query. This promises to be a real game changer.”
Hygraph’s federated content platform allows organizations to innovate faster and at lower cost, replacing tedious custom software development associated with many of today’s headless Content Management Systems (CMS).
With the recent proliferation of composable architectures, federated content enables enterprises to seamlessly develop and run content-rich features. Top-level remote fields further enable the advantages by streamlining and modernizing content connections. Rather than making multiple API calls to different systems, top-level federation capabilities allow users to fetch all content and data from a single Hygraph GraphQL endpoint.
Consider an e-commerce use case where you might want to fetch product data from your commerce system (e.g., Shopify), digital assets from your DAM (e.g., Cloudinary), and rich content stored in Hygraph. You can now fetch all this data from Hygraph's content API in one query.
The key benefits of the new top-level remote fields capability include:
“Organizations are currently unable to unlock full value from their content, as custom software and integration challenges slow the creation of new digital services at scale," added Lukaszczyk. "Top-level remote fields capabilities represent a powerful next step for enterprises to dramatically streamline and modernize content connections and drive the next generation of customer experiences."
