Not All Headless CMS Are Made Equal

Ronak Ganatra, former VP of Marketing at Hygraph (previously known as GraphCMS) has penned an extremely interesting piece on the headless CMS landscape, both present, and future.

According to Ganatra, the headless CMS market is poised to splinter into three categories, with the term “CMS” becoming less and less relevant.

“When working at Hygraph, I started to get really involved in understanding more about vendor selection when having discussions with other MACH vendors, seeing which events and conferences other vendors were present at, and when observing what kinds of case studies each vendor was promoting (as well as some insights from our own sales discussions).

Some patterns began to become quite apparent,” Ganatra said.

Elsewhere in DXP land, Umbraco hired a new CMO, MyPlanet raised $11M, and frontend developers discuss their preferred headless CMS.

"Although they’re both leaders on the same G2 grid for Headless CMS with very similar comments, the nuanced differences in their API and capabilities are quite striking."
