Content to interact with

Content to interact with

Content today is interactive “application content.” Rather than just being passively consumed, content needs to be actively interacted with, personalized, contextually adapted, and omni-accessible.

GraphCMS allows teams to create content and upload media assets once at a micro, modular level, before powering leading streaming platforms, SaaS products, omnichannel fitness apps, and more.

Unlock programmable content management

Unlock programmable content management

GraphCMS lets you enhance your content through other services. Using remote fields, webhooks, GraphQL mutations, and integrations, you can connect all your existing tools and platforms to GraphCMS via API.

This allows you to not only programmatically create, enhance, and deliver content from GraphCMS, but consume interactions with your frontends to channel back into your other services via GraphCMS.

Structured content driven applications

Structured content driven applications

The structured content approach to application content production makes it easier to launch new projects, refine existing ones, and introduce new enhancements, all while reusing existing content models.

Instead of starting from scratch every time your team needs a new presentation layer, using structured content enables you to build off of existing content, reducing your time to market, enabling a sustainable content strategy.

Case Study: GraphCMS and Telenor

When you work with a monolith, you become a spec writer. We needed the abstraction layer and UI on top of it (database), which would have used a large amount of development resources.

Telenor delights millions of viewers with immersive media entertainment.

The Telenor team needed the scale of a database and ultimately chose GraphCMS to provide the same power with an abstraction layer for content, native localization, and schema builder. With GraphCMS, teams are able to programmatically feed content from multiple sources into GraphCMS which simplifies the work for content editors.

The flexibility that GraphCMS provides to set up and change the project schema as the project grows and develops makes the development of the projects faster and less of a hassle for developers to make changes later on in the development process.

Case Study: GraphCMS and DTM

I love the idea of pure content data in GraphCMS. All applications – and who knows what we will come up with – simply retrieve content via GraphQL and serve it the way we need to at the different touchpoints. Tomorrow we could build an Alexa skill with the existing content structure we already have in place.

DTM

Europe’s leading motorsport platform, DTM, accelerates with a successful user-centric digital transformation.

Previously, DTM’s website ran on several content management systems including a monolithic Drupal instance. The UX was not appropriate for the demanding fan and not adapted to the various user segments of DTM. The legacy technical setup quickly became obsolete as it no longer fulfilled the ever-changing user requirements. As the team spent time adapting the legacy system, one question was pushed to the forefront: “What is the tech architecture that will lead us into the future?”.

Why GraphCMS

Discover how a GraphQL Headless CMS accelerates your website projects

Content Standardization

Ensure that content creation processes are well streamlined, with teams exploiting the opportunity to minimise time to market, and focus on better digital experiences.

Structured Content

Work with just the right amount of data abstraction, enabling you to put your content into reusable blocks of the same format, and deliver them to your applications via API.

Automated Workflows

The structured approach allows each content field to be queried into native formats automatically. Create one content entry, and have it adjusted for each platform natively.

Assets as Data

Whether your application requires songs for a music streaming platform or menus for a food delivery web-app, your assets are also treated as data, and transformed on demand, complete with metadata.

Robust APIs

Modern workflows need to work non-destructively with schema definitions and provide the ability to preview content in the context of the consumer, to enable interactive content like never before.

Slightly Opinionated

We believe in “Just Enough Opinion” on content to supercharge your content with thoughtful CMS features and API enhancements that are tailored for Application Content.
