An API-first CMS provides the advantages of headless CMS—API-only—with rich capabilities like workflow, search and content delivery. With an API-first platform, businesses have the option to use a number of pre-built integrations to save valuable development time and effort.
With the Brightspot CMS, we take a different approach that combines a more intuitive architecture and flexibility to drive your business forward. And that’s thanks to Dari, a principle that has made Brightspot what it is today.
Headless CMS and GraphQL have been trending topics for a while in the content management space. Discover the benefits of headless CMS and the flexibility it affords digital organizations, plus the power of GraphQL as the query language connecting your APIs to your front-end applications.

Brightspot improved the quality of life for our editorial team, who can now manage sites, collaborate, and publish experiences faster and more seamlessly than ever to meet the demands of our audience.
