Where's your Head at?

The Future of Headless eCommerce

The decision of whether or not to go headless has disrupted the digital landscape and divided departments. De-coupling the front-end "presentation layer(s)" from back end processes can lead to far richer customer experiences, streamlined in house development and cleaner overall architecture for many businesses.

Headless architectures are (by definition) slightly more complex, with different internal product owners as well as a variance of resources being required for the "Head" and other elements. Planning becomes critical, and budget control needs your full attention, but as technologies in front-end and transactional elements develop, there is without doubt a choice to be made.

Those in favour are gaining traction and beginning to prove just why this approach is shaking up eCommerce. However among a lengthy list of pros and cons how can you begin to grasp whether this new strategy is right for you and your brand?

Join us at our morning conference to cut through the noise on the headless approach and it’s endless possibilities for customisation.

Topics we will cover include:

  • How to remain relevant in the competitive market

  • A truly omnichannel approach with seamless integration

  • Agile Marketing

  • The IoT future – headless eCommerce architecture

  • The back-end data model with a cloud based infrastructure

  • Creating a better UX with flexible front-end development

  • Endless possibilities for customisation and personalisation

  • Improve marketing effectiveness for innovation

  • Refining Conversion optimization for a faster rate of learning

Who should attend:

  • Directors of eCommerce, Digital, Customer Experience (CX), Omnichannel, Multichannel, Technology, Innovation and Online

  • Heads of eCommerce, Trading, UX, UI and Architecture

  • Front-end Developers

  • Product Owners

  • Chief Technology Officers

  • Chief Digital Officers

  • Founders, CEOs & Owners
