What is Contentful?

Contentful is a content management system and a development solution with API embedded at the center of its operating technology. It makes all content accessible through APIs that allow you to bring your content anywhere and show them for any purpose. Its unique technology framework allows you to build customized content models rather than dealing with them using fixed and ready-made templates. Contentful offers all contents and provides you enough room to design them, flexibly separating contents from presentations for improved performance. Although Contentful is affordable, it can be integrated with your existing software architecture. Besides, it offers a free plan, and you could always switch to paid plans to access more advanced features.

Contentful Benefits

Benefits

The main benefits of Contentful are extensive caching and multiple redundancies, infrastructure level content, and easy creation of content templates. Read on to understand further.

The content of the software is stored in entries that are comprised of module and flexible fields, allowing you to stay away from page-centric models that limit your ability to present your contents. It has a “Markdown” formatting language that works on different platforms and can be parsed immediately. With this capacity, whatever content templates can be built, no matter how complex they were or whether you’re creating them manually in the web interface or you’re using specific code through management API.

Both content management and delivery can be decoupled on the level of infrastructure, meaning if your management segment fails, your delivery tier will still work. Its delivery infrastructure is in “read-only” mode to guarantee better speed and security, and give you the power to allow only the authorized personnel to access and work on contents, depending on your organization’s structure.

Extensive caching and multiple redundancies ensure fast delivery of content and robust security for critical data. This capability entails that once the entire redundancies on your delivery infrastructure fail, almost 98% of your contents will still be served from cache.

The software also offers real-time content editing capability to support team collaboration. With the help of its robust API as well as custom scripts, your content can easily be imported from any source. Both content and content models could be made and updated through the management API. Through this, you can have the chance to employ your custom content management workflow. Additionally, the software offers synchronization that lets you deliver small chunks of content updates, excellently enhancing mobile bandwidth requirements.
