Content Management Systems (CMS) have come a long way from the early beginnings of the Web. With an increasing amount of content that has to be managed across more and more channels, the time is ripe for modern headless architectures to augment the experience and possibilities for both developers and content creators.
CMS is dating back to the beginning of the WWW
Content management systems (CMS) are nearly as old as the world wide web and can be traced back to August 6, 1991, when Tim Berners Lee laid the foundation of the WWW with the creation of hypertext (HTML) and launching the first website at CERN. Consequently, this led to an inflation of content being created and the need to properly write, publish and update this content. The traditional way of publishing (on paper) was disrupted and a new set of tools and suites had to be created to support content creators and editors to adapt their content to the new channel and possibilities of the web.
