Uniform, a digital experience composition platform (DXCP), composed the evaluation guide with the help of an experienced team of marketers and developers who have worked with many headless CMS vendors when integrating their software through Uniform.
In a news release announcing the evaluation guide, Uniform noted a rapidly growing interest in composable tech stacks to avoid vendor lock-in while acknowledging the complexity of going headless.
“Over the last several years, the CMS marketplace has expanded exponentially, so has the architecture, making it harder for brands to track the differences between solutions and to know what to look for when evaluating solutions,” said Mark Demeny, Uniform's head of product strategy. “Our guide describes the modern functional and nonfunctional criteria for evaluating headless CMS and walks planning teams through each step of the process.”
Uniform helps to simplify the process of implementing a composable CMS by helping define the fundamentals, benefits, and differences between a composable and a traditional system. The guide also helps teams determine their CMS goals and compare the options available that align with those goals.
The guide is broken down into five sections designed to assist in the decision to go composable:
As a digital experience composition platform, Uniform helps companies bridge the gap between legacy systems and integrated composable solutions. It offers greater flexibility to companies currently locked into a monolithic system.
Uniform is also on a mission to eliminate glue code that presents issues when implementing new software. It recently launched a Component Starter Kit that helps marketers and content creators to use RESTful API integrations to connect content from a headless CMS or commerce system with no glue code or developer tickets.
The new Composable CMS Evaluation Guide follows Uniform's CMS Comparison guide, launched early this spring. Both guides promise to help ease decision-making for those considering a new CMS, eliminating some guesswork through detailed explanations.
