Empowering Developers and Marketers in a Headless/Decoupled World​

For many headless and even decoupled systems, there isn’t an easy way to integrate with React. Most of the time, developers rely on APIs to build the frontend. Marketers are totally blocked, and any change on a page has to go through a technical request. Marketers don’t have personalization and advanced techniques at their fingertips, and in some cases, these modern approaches aren’t even an option.

In Sitefinity, we resolved this issue with our so-called decoupled architecture and frontend renderers, where developers code on their favorite technology—React. Marketers, on other hand, still have what-you-see-is-what-you-get capabilities to build/update pages via drag and drop. Personalization is just a few clicks away and no technical assistance is needed. Most importantly, all this happens without needing to care about the technology under the hood.
