Traditional CMS vs Cloud CMS
The architecture of a traditional content management system (CMS) is based on the tight connection between the backend and the frontend. The backend has a database with code and plugins that make it possible to store, manage and edit content. The frontend has in-built theme templates and CSS that are responsible for displaying content on the website.
Thus, the content is pushed from the database into a predefined layout, and if you want to make some changes in this scheme, you will have to do it manually and revamp the entire structure of the system.
How Cloud Content Management System (CMS) Works?
The Cloud-based CMS is also known as headless CMS and the term headless means that the system has no “head,” or its “upper part” which is the frontend. In simple words, it offers the backend for content management and an API for connecting the backend to any application frontend and transmitting content to any device.
Since a cloud CMS has no predefined frontend with standard templates for displaying data, it doesn’t cope with issues of content layout or page design. What it offers is delivering raw content from a single backend to multiple devices desktop, mobile, IoT. At the same time, deploying a new device or modifying a particular channel does not affect the whole content management system.
This is the most important feature that every platform must-have. News stories involving hacking, data theft, and malware make headlines around the world nearly every week. Content managers must make sure that their sensitive data, both for their company and their customers, is secured from attack, both from internal and external perpetrators.
