Contentful Introduces API-First Content Management Platform

Contentful, an API-first content management platform, is available to the public today. Contentful makes it easy to create and manage content in the cloud - and publish it everywhere: web, smartphones, tablets, signage, and whatever might come next.

Contentful provides a web-based authoring interface that lets non-technical editors work with content after configuring a content model. Designers independently craft the interface for end-users, while the powerful APIs give developers a simpler way to load content into apps, websites, or even to build completely custom editing interfaces.

“The days of a page-centric CMS are numbered,” explained Sascha Konietzke CEO and cofounder of Contentful. “Historically content management systems were built for HTML-based templates. With Contentful, content is completely separate from the presentation layer, so that you can develop custom experiences on any device.”

Contentful lets developers and designers use the tools of their choice. No more limitations from template-based systems. Contentful’s API is flexible and gives users the ability to deliver the best mobile experiences across mobile devices. SDKs are currently available for iOS, Ruby as well as interactive HTML5 and JavaScript.

David Gillis, a partner at creative agency Teehan+Lax, comments: “Contentful's platform-agnostic content set-up and its well thought out API infrastructure simplified the process of developing a mobile service for a client considerably. This let us focus more on our core features and the user experience.”

Contentful has been built for scale and delivers tens of millions of API requests to content projects in production, from very small mobile screens to large format, 70 inch multi-touch displays. Over 5,000 innovative brands took part in the Contentful beta. Customers of Contentful’s newly released platform include Nike, global media companies like Viacom and Playboy, and creative agencies like Teehan+Lax and AQ.

Contentful is open starting today at www.contentful.com.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
