As we approach the end the year and the holiday season, everyone here at CoreMedia is excited about our new gift - the first release of CoreMedia ContentCloud version 11. The first distribution this new release (v11.2110.1) will be out any day now and we can't wait to tell you about all of the great new features and enhancements.
It's that time again. As you know, CoreMedia is committed to the principle of continuous innovation. CoreMedia Content Cloud is enhanced by a series of Agile Enhancement Packs (AEP), which provide additional functionality to the major product release.
At CoreMedia, we know that our customers can’t stand still in the face of constantly shifting requirements and increasing competitive challenges. Brands are under constant pressure to improve their operational efficiency and deliver increasingly innovative customer experiences. With that in mind, we are committed to delivering regular feature updates to help you stay ahead of the market.
We think that CoreMedia Content Cloud is the best, most flexible, CMS and DXP on the market. But that doesn't mean that we're content to rest on our laurels. We're continually enhancing and extending our software with new features, bug fixes, partner solutions, and world-class integrations.
In the last few years, the Frontend Developers at ]init[ - a CoreMedia implementation partner - have built several projects based on Fractal, a new pattern library framework that helps you build and document web component libraries, and integrate them into your projects. We use these libraries as a Living Style Guide for a range of CMS systems – but especially for CoreMedia Content Cloud.
Remember when web servers were essentially a metal box with a fixed IP? When web content management meant copy-pasting indecipherable bits of text from the HTML tab in Microsoft Frontpage? And when Amazon’s homepage looked like this in your browser?
Enterprise software is a big investment and the path to purchase can be a complicated one. We know, for example, that global brands choose CoreMedia Content Cloud for many different reasons, including the need for robust customization and integration capabilities.
For some time, “headless” has been the hottest trend in Content Management Systems (CMS). And for a very good reason. A headless architecture allows enterprises to separate content data from the frontend display, splitting up the frontend and backend, and therefore paving the way for an agile, microservice-based architecture.
Over the last few years, CoreMedia Content Cloud has integrated with every major eCommerce system on the market. Some of these are delivered as a bundled product (including Salesforce Commerce Cloud, SAP Commerce Cloud and HCL Commerce) while others are implemented on a project level (including Elastic Path, Magento, Spryker and a variety of homegrown systems).
With the release of Content Cloud 10, CoreMedia now natively delivers content in a headless fashion via GraphQL. But what is GraphQL and how exactly is it used to fetch content from CoreMedia? This blog post explains everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask. So, why headless?
