Enhancements to Pantheon’s Front-End Sites Announced

At DrupalCon 2023, a team will present decoupled technologies and new improvements.

Pantheon, a SaaS-based platform for website operations (WebOps) for developers, designers, and marketers, announced today that its Front-End Sites product has been improved with advanced content cache coordination, resolving the conflict between serving visitors at scale and enabling content updates in real-time. The new version of Front-End Sites is the most recent upgrade, and it is now broadly accessible to any enterprise interested in a decoupled design. Members of the Pantheon team will present the technology this week at DrupalCon 2023, which takes place from June 5-8 in Pittsburgh.

Open Source CMS and JavaScript frameworks are combined by Pantheon

Pantheon’s Front-End Sites take the complexity out of decoupled architecture projects and give digital teams the technical foundation, WebOps tools, scalability, and resilience they need to create and efficiently manage more creative, content-rich digital experiences. Pantheon combines the top Open Source CMS platforms that content producers adore with the cutting-edge front-end frameworks that developers demand into a single, dependable platform. The ability to design cutting-edge, multichannel user experiences that offer performance and results, while fostering cross-functional cooperation and streamlining site maintenance, is given to teams.

The most recent in a line of regular improvements to the front end site, the supply of enhanced content cache coordination removes substantial trade-offs and problems when selecting a rendering approach for a contemporary JavaScript front-end. Customers may now benefit from both server side rendering and static site generation, enabling massively scalable web experiences that can also be updated with new material in seconds, without adding any complexity or overhead for developers.

Justification for decoupling

Customers’ need for quick, engaging brand interactions across channels and devices are only increasing. Delivering on these expectations is quickly evolving into a competitive advantage, but the traditional monolithic CMS frequently lacks the agility, speed, and capabilities digital teams require to execute, particularly as more brands turn to interactive web pages, mobile apps, and sophisticated web applications constructed with cutting-edge JavaScript frameworks. Decoupled architectures, which offer an effective framework for individuals creating code and those managing content to work concurrently and produce modern, multichannel experiences, are being used by enterprises as a result of this.

By making the end-user-facing component a separate program, often created with one of several current JavaScript frameworks, the growing decoupling method defies convention. Even while the CMS is still present, it is currently “headless,” only serving content via API. It enables many front-ends to share the same source of truth for content, such as a website, native app, digital signage system, or other business system. This allows for frequent testing and iteration of the digital experience and considerably increases efficiency for web teams.

“Web development is moving toward decoupled architectures”, according to Meredith Brown, chief product officer at Pantheon. “Brands can create outstanding user experiences that have a meaningful impact on their businesses using Pantheon’s Front-End Sites offering, which combines creative front-end capabilities with safe, reliable CMS functionality.”

Users of Front-End Sites can now provide audiences with more engaging website experiences thanks to technology. For the clients of her company, Molly Duggan Associates, the technology has helped close the gap between development and marketing. Duggan asserts that decoupled architectures provide better user experiences and, ultimately, increase brand trust, which research indicates is the main driver of customer sharing of first-party data. Frictionless digital experiences will be essential to consumer loyalty and company performance as marketers adapt, innovate, and construct their engagement strategies for a cookieless world.

“To improve the brand experience and promote growth across all brand touchpoints, I work closely with my clients. That involves transforming their website into their most sophisticated business application for almost all of our clients,” added Duggan. “Front-End Sites brings the front-end framework and back-end content management system under one roof, giving teams the tools they need to integrate and work more quickly and effectively.”

At DrupalCon 2023, Pantheon

Front-End Sites will be demonstrated at the Pantheon booth at DrupalCon 2023 for attendees. During his presentation on Tuesday, June 6 at 11:30 a.m. ET, Pantheon Chief Strategy Officer Josh Koenig will also give more information about the potential influence JavaScript may have on the future of Drupal.
