The fastest content platform for a modern tech stack

More than a Headless CMS. Better than a Suite.

Headless CMS

If content management is your main concern, deploy Magnolia as a headless CMS. Access all your content from one place (including remote content) and reuse it to launch experiences across all your websites and channels faster.

Unlike other headless solutions, Magnolia has all the features you need - no hidden costs - and offers a full WYSIWYG authoring experience including visual experience preview.

Compare Magnolia with the Competition

Suites and Legacy Solutions

SaaS only Solutions


Ease of Use  

Workflows across integrated suite tools often fragmented and cumbersome 

Very limited and poor authoring tools (most solutions offer form-editing only)

Best-in-class for author experience (structured content editing, WYSIWYG, visual SPA editor, full experience preview)

Ease of Integration 

Complex and typically closed codebase makes integration with non-suite systems difficult, producing vendor lock-in 

Limited out-of-the-box connectors. New extensions and integrations take major development resources

Open standards, powerful APIs, and productized Connector Packs streamline and accelerate integrations

Headless & Omnichannel

Limited architectural flexibility for headless and microservices

Headless native and highly flexible, however lack of mature authoring tools leaves practitioners “in the dark”

Headless with more flexibility (go headless, user server-side rendering, or any combination). Authors get full visual controls and preview

Time to Value

Steep learning and development curve due to monolithic and complex codebase

Fast to start with, but further growth usually difficult (customization and extension takes major development resources) 

Light and fast to deploy (our unique Light Development approach offers the fastest possible time to value)

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Steeper license, development and infrastructure costs

Less expensive to get started, but hidden costs of missing features increases TCO

Best cost to value ratio and transparency
