Not A Typical Headless CMS

Headless CMSs were built for developers, and have unleashed higher levels of developer productivity. However, they leave the content authoring teams with a limited UX.

All built around a Git-based content repository that raises enterprise productivity through unique DevContentOps® processes. For composing fast, secure and scalable content-centric digital experiences.
