Contentful is leading the transition from legacy Content Management Systems (CMS) to Content Infrastructure — offering a new way to power content in any digital product – website, app, or device — and is purpose-built to integrate with the modern software stack and software delivery pipelines. 

Contentful’s approach has seen huge adoption in the enterprise, including Fortune 500 companies, disruptive startups and top digital agencies. Leading brands such as Spotify, Urban Outfitters, Red Bull, Jack in the Box, Xoom/Paypal, Lenovo and Nike are all relying on the Contentful platform to author, manage and deliver digital content to any channel or platform.
