Future is here, do you agree? Then why you might use not cloud-based CMS? In this article we will mostly appeal to those of you who look in the future but still use the technologies of the past. To convince you (and your developers/friends / clients) we will name 5 reasons to use cloud-based CMS.
Even if you have your preferred CMS, you need to think about all its advantages and drawbacks. You can use it as long as you want if you ok with it. But this way will never make you the one ahead of the pack. And only up-to-date cutting-edge technologies will. To dominate you have to develop constantly. And the next thing to improve is your CMS.
So why cloud-based CMS is a way better than the rest?
- Speed up Development time
You don’t have to install, configure and customize your cloud-based CMS. You focus only on your development process or website/app you do. By this, you perform better, lower the cost and timeline, which eventually affect the overall performance.
- Language Agnostic
When using a cloud-based CMS, you particularly don’t care about programming language and don’t have to compromise. Whatever application you want to build can consume the content via API. This flexibility of content delivery and speed of development will get the content to more people, faster giving their business a competitive edge. When you want to deliver your work to another developer he doesn’t need to be proficient in a certain programming language to build apps that consume the content.
- Ready for the Future
API-first allows the flexibility for future implementations. Whatever platform or language you’re going to use in the future, the content will be available via a service that doesn’t care what the final application is built on. By this, you should not worry fluctuations in technology trends affect your content.
- Eliminate Technical Debt
With cloud-based CMS incompatibility with installed plugins or changes in server versions are completely avoidable. We assume that you know that installed CMS systems have lots of moving parts that all degrade over time. Using a cloud-based service to host your content ensures that your content will always be available. So no worries about maintaining physical server hardware.
- Better Collaboration
The main difference between an installed CMS and a cloud-based CMS is collaboration. You’ll be able to easily add people to work on a project. Since an API-first CMS doesn’t require a developer to setup the database and install the plugins required, even a non-technical person can immediately begin adding content while the application is being built. This speeds up the development cycle and allows to provide great collaboration and a faster feedback loop on the implications of content on design.
Go API-first with no hesitations.
