Evolution of CMS

From monolith to MACH with John Williams.

Key Highlights:

  • The beginning of the CMS and why we actually need them
  • CMS architectures and the technical attributes of the traditional CMS
  • Deployment patterns of CMS – baking vs frying
  • The CMS evolution and the effect on features, architecture and deployment

All hail the humble CMS.

If there’s anyone that’s seen and experienced the journey the industry has gone on in terms of technology changes, it’s Amplience’s CTO John Williams. So who better to sit and explain the world of headless technology.

John’s videos can help you get to grips with all the new terms and approaches to technology, and his series, Evolution of CMS - Monolith to MACH, focuses on content management systems specifically, including the evolution from traditional CMS to headless and MACH – key technology in helping brands deliver the multi-channel digital experiences that are demanded of them today.

The CMS architectures of the past are a far cry from the headless CMS and MACH architecture of today. John looks at the architecture of web CMS and how it was technically built, such as being on-premise, monolithic, etc, before comparing the traditional CMS architecture to headless. 
Baking versus frying. No we’re not whipping up a sweet treat but instead evaluating deployment patterns when delivering content with a traditional CMS. John goes into more detail on these different, traditional patterns as well as comparing them with headless CMS deployment patterns. 
From what started as a simple tool for managing and publishing HTML content, CMS’ have evolved monumentally. This episode, understand from John how and why initial CMS’ have adapted and grown, including how it has all affected CMS features, architecture and deployment.
