Developers are responsible for aligning technology to support the mission, strategy and processes of their organization. This involves dictating technical standards, including code, tools and platforms, in order to drive transformation towards a desired future state. A recent McKinsey article looked at the role developers play in improving business performance, noting that "improving business performance through software development comes down to empowering developers, creating the right environment for them to innovate, and removing points of friction." Here are 10 ways Brightspot empowers and improves the lives of developers.
The platform provides the ability to easily and deeply integrate additional third-party and proprietary systems into the publishing workflow. An API-first framework provides the flexibility to seamlessly configure new integrations as needed, while 70+ out-of-the-box integrations accelerate CMS development and deployment from day one.
An open-source standard, GraphQL makes querying content models simple, allowing you to use whatever front-end coding langauges you choose. Along with GraphQL, Brightspot features its own self-describing type system, which enables developers to easily discover what data types and fields are accessible through our content delivery API.
Leveraging the Brightspot data-modeling layer, developers don’t need to do intensive data modeling and application redeployment to add to the data model and present it to end users.
Our unique data framework approach also allows for rapid iteration, allowing developers to quickly spin up models for any use case so they can spend their time defining the underlying architecture and business logic and not on tedious remodeling efforts every time a new project gets underway.
Brightspot has automatic database management, automatic application UI and auto-generated APIs that saves time and money in development costs.
With Brightspot, you have the option to go headless, use a head or do both. Developer teams have the ability to use multiple independent heads connected to specific channels to manage content strategically across endpoints.
Modular content authoring
The platform lessens the burden on developers from editorial teams, and can be used to create editorial content types that will flow and transform easily to all channels and endpoints.
Brightspot is designed to reduce technical debt by not requiring a rewrite or significant reworking. Brightspot CMS's headless-hybrid flexibility gives development the ability to seamlessly adapt as new channels and opportunities emerge, as well when an organization's business logic and priorities change.
The platform provides the ability to customize workflows for editors that make their day-to-day operations smoother and more efficient, which, in turn, makes the lives of developers easier, too. Customization also extends to being able to configure the editing UI to suit different roles, permissions and publishing needs.
Reduced IT impact
All of the above, and all of the reasons why publishers love Brightspot, means less reliance on IT and developer teams so that they can focus on more strategic work.
