Including Marketing Teams in Headless Architecture Planning

While headless and composable architecture is the talk of the content industry, an intriguing trend has emerged. Due to its technical nature and need for novel uses of APIs, the transition to headless is frequently an engineering-driven effort. As a result, teams responsible for developing and publishing content—which frequently do not include developers or engineers—might feel left behind and asked to use a new system that seems inaccessible to them. In this episode of MX Matters, Elad Rosenheim, who is in charge of Stackbit’s developer growth efforts, speaks with Sam and Maribel from Cloudinary. Stackbit’s visual experience editing platform serves as a layer to give engineering and marketing teams the experiences they both require – development flexibility and a user-friendly publication interface. Elad explains how he and the Stackbit team are tackling this trend, and also delves deeply into a number of crucial subjects related to content authoring and structure. You won’t want to miss this episode if you’re thinking about switching to a headless environment, especially for your content-rich blogs, websites, and other key locations!
