The Power of a Headless CMS

The most dazzling websites on the internet often (more often than not) act like applications. With robust wizards, animation, and self-service capabilities, users are beginning to expect this type of functionality from every organization they interact with. This demand for customization and bespoke digital experiences is met by a truly flexible solution: Contentful.

Contentful is a headless content platform that serves as a multichannel solution for publishing dynamic content. By separating the content from the code, a headless content platform such as Contentful offers a powerful solution for publishing content, customizing the user experience, and streamlining your team’s day-to-day maintenance.

Why We Love Building on Contentful

Contentful's open and extensible App Framework allows for deep UI customization, advanced content automation, and seamless integration with other services. This enables LaunchPad Lab’s team to create a website that looks and feels like an intuitive application—without the headache that comes with maintaining it.

Stay Safe and Secure

Contentful also delivers a comprehensive layer of security for your website or application. Following ISO 27001:2013 international standards, Contentful’s system evaluates risks and vulnerabilities for its users. Contentful’s API integrations also make it possible to deploy an application or website the same way we would with any other highly sensitive application. For example, we could deploy to a Heroku Private Space for enterprise-grade application security, or even to Heroku Shield for a HIPAA Compliant environment.
