Using an API first system allows for decoupling of the content and the front-end. A further upgrade to this concept is using GraphQL. This allows for quicker editing, and load times.
No developer enjoys adding punctuation, changing an image or updating a blog post. With GraphCMS’ headless content management, all of these issues are a thing of the past.
Headless enables developers to use any technology, framework and programming language to create web apps, mobile apps, IoT apps and more!

GraphCMS no longer constraints teams with design. That means our Content Management System manages and delivers pure content and you the client decide how the visual display of the content is shown.
Traditional systems require you to worry about your own hosting. Using a headless CMS, such as GraphCMS, places the burden of hosting on us.
As the first GraphQL content management system, we have the best perspective on what is needed out of a Headless CMS. We know that this product needs to be focused on making life easier for developers.
The needs of a developer for a headless CMS are typically mobile developers who require a backend to feed their apps with content, or front-end developers who interact with APIs on a regular basis. While both technologies have been around for a while, its becoming increasingly popular to use a CMS as a Service because of its simplicity.
Content creators generate their content for many different channels and devices. It’s far too tedious and expensive to have seperate tools for different channels, so a CMS as a Solution like GraphCMS saves time and money. Using GraphCMS’ service allows developer’s precious time to be focused on the application instead of minor post-edits.
