API-first CMS Bets on SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory


API-first CMS, also known as pure Headless CMS, is becoming a buzzword in content management space as it integrates content management tools via Application Programming Interface (API).

API-first CMS (content management system) Contentstack can now integrate with SAP cloud products after its announcement of an expanded partnership with SAP. The content experience platform provider will be supporting the newly launched SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory, which allows businesses to create cloud-native extensions for the Intelligent Enterprise.

An industry leader in the headless CMS category, Contentstack leverages Extension Factory in decoupling code from content, hence, reimagining content management.

In May this year, SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory was made available for customers and partners on SAP Cloud Platform and SAP C/4HANA Foundation. It is the software giant’s go-to cloud-native extensibility framework for the Intelligent Enterprise and an evolutionary step towards creating a next-generation ecosystem. SAP’s partnership with Contentstack is the catalyst that helps propel integrations with SAP C/4HANA solutions.

Contentstack delivers integrated content services for the SAP Cloud Platform Portal enabling customers that use SAP solutions to quickly and easily create portals, sites and apps with embedded, turnkey content management capabilities. It is a huge step up from the traditional CMS. Furthermore, with SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory, developers can now access all available APIs and events in a central catalog once a business connects its systems to SAP Cloud Platform.

Matthew Baier, COO at Contentstack, said:

 “We live in a world where content is consumed via countless channels and form factors across mobile, web and IoT. Decoupling code from content allows developers to build digital experiences faster and with higher fidelity. With SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory, developers can quickly set up trust between the key content systems that are contributing to the digital customer experience. The seamless connectivity between applications means businesses can focus on delivering customer value without wasting time building custom code.”

Contentstack’s headless CMS cloud-native and API-first architecture, cut down on infrastructure, maintenance, cost, and complexity, enabling companies to provide holistic digital experiences.
