Build amazing commerce sites with a headless frontend

In this fast-changing digital world, new technology and software solutions are continually emerging that enable companies to react quickly to changes in the market and meet new customer demands. Consequently, companies are breaking up their monolithic IT systems on a grand scale and instead, turning to composable, headless solutions built on an API and microservices-based ecosystem of components.   

Once a company has decided to go headless, they’re inevitably confronted with the question of how users will engage and interact in this headless commerce environment. While more and more companies are choosing this new architecture approach, the topic of a frontend for a headless tech stack hasn’t received much attention. In this white paper, we explain how to develop a headless frontend to ensure you can continually exceed customer expectations.
