"Headless solutions are absolutely the future of enterprise WordPress, yet there isn't one end-to-end solution out there that includes the dynamic Node.js layer, the static CDN layer and the Headless content management systems (CMS) layer, in one package," said Jason Cohen (News - Alert), Founder and Chief Technology Officer at WP Engine. "That's why we created Atlas. Using the modern frameworks they prefer, developers can build personalized, omni-channel experiences integrated with backends at the speed normally reserved for static brochure sites. Marketers maintain critical publishing functionality lacking in other headless CMSs like post previews, SEO optimizations and pages they can control. With Atlas, developers aren't forced to choose between incredible site performance and dynamic experiences. And they can keep the open source CMS platform that drives 40% of the web, now upgraded to support developers' modern architecture. It's the best of all worlds."
Why Headless Matters
Headless WordPress provides developers the ultimate flexibility and freedom for the "right tech, right job," easy integrations with other software, additional layers of security and the ability to future-proof the CMS for marketers who gain a new level of flexibility and control of the content. They can anticipate new channels, new devices and the ability to publish more broadly and to any device.
Developer Pain Points
Solution engineers have had to fill in the gaps to architect a complete stack that meets these' needs. In doing so, they faced significant time-to-market delays, had to hire talent to manage multiple systms, lacked transparency on total cost of development and had to jump through a lot of technical hoops to troubleshoot.
Depending on the choice of existing technology, various limits or trade-offs exist:
Atlas: The Complete Headless Solution for WordPress
WP Engine's Atlas is the only headless solution that includes the dynamic node layer, the static CDN layer, and the Headless CMS layer in one package. It's also the only headless solution where the front-end and back-end work in harmony, to deliver features that aren't possible when other solutions are sold separately and not bundled together, like post previews and SEO.
