dotCMS Unveils Edit Mode Anywhere, Empowers Marketers in Hybrid Headless CMS Environment

May 20, 2019

dotCMS, the leading open-source Hybrid CMS, has rolled out Edit Mode Anywhere to reinstate the power and autonomy of marketers and business users in a headless environment.

Seen as another milestone in dotCMS’s journey towards a NoCode experience for business users, Edit Mode Anywhere gives non-technical users a centralized and undisrupted editing experience within a headless environment.

The features of Edit Mode Anywhere empower non-technical users with the following capabilities, without them having to touch a single line of code:

  • Add and edit content
  • Create new pages
  • Drag-and-drop content segments, rows, columns, and layouts to design pages
  • Preview device-specific content
  • Manage workflows
  • Personalize content for specific personas

With these features, business users can directly edit their sites, single page applications, kiosk experiences, or any other content-driven application without relying on the IT department—thus empowering both parties, and closing the disconnect in the process.

“With the demand for API-first web content management showing no signs of slowing, brands have seen the disconnection between the CMO and the CTO grow to uncomfortable distances. Edit Mode Anywhere bridges the gap,” said Jason Smith, Chief User Experience Officer at dotCMS.

“Edit Mode Anywhere makes it possible for developers to use their desired framework to develop the frontend before integrating with dotCMS to take advantage of intuitive, marketer-friendly authoring experience that manages the content that is presented on a variety of different devices,” Smith said.

“Single page application development and management, for instance, would otherwise be yet another battlefront for marketers and developers. However, with Edit Mode Anywhere, each team gets the tools, freedom, and autonomy required to produce cutting edge customer experiences,” Smith continued.

With Edit Mode Anywhere, enterprise brands can finally unify IT and marketing and do away with disrupted and siloed editing experiences that prevent continuous, omnichannel customer experiences.
