What is difference between monolithic platforms and a headless platform?
There are a number of differences between Monolithic systems and a Headless system, these include:
- Monolithic systems have lots of functionality built into them that not all customers need.
- A headless platform gives you access to entities, examples of these are pages, menus, products, blogs, people, etc. Entities are the base objects that you can then modify and enhance to your requirements.
- Monolithic systems are more focused on delivering solutions to the end client rather than the developer. Core dna’s platform strikes a balance between the developer environment and the admin environment.
- Headless platforms in many cases don’t come with admin tools for end clients. Core dna continues to provide admin friendly tools inside our headless platform.
- Access to information from a monolithic system can be difficult.
- Monolithic systems require you to establish the infrastructure and the security tools to make them work.
- Monolithic systems can take time to learn and understand the way they work.
- Headless platforms allow you to create your own publishing environments.
