Beyond the Design System: Merging Data and Composable Experiences

Andrew Kumar, Director of Platform Strategy at Contentful, and Bertrand Karerangabo, Vice President of Digital Strategy at Rangle are in-conversation for a wide-ranging look at CMS platforms—where they’ve come from, where they’re going, and how to deliver top value to your digital customers now.  

In their conversation, Andrew and Bertrand cover the pain points brands are facing today with their CMS platforms, and what they currently do with their headless CMS to address these issues. They cover integration of design systems, and the possibilities of micro frontends. Then, they dive into what the future will look like: What’s coming for content platforms, what could and should be possible, and what you can do to prepare for it now.  

The discussion is tailored for businesses interested in composable commerce, and making building experiences easy and flexible for marketing and merchandising professionals.
