looking for a CMS that needs to be integrated with several other existing systems in your organization, you might have stumbled upon Digital Experience Platforms (DXP): 1. The feature set is way to extensive for your company’s needs. DXPs target big corporations and follow an all-in approach. You pay for all of the features, even when you don’t need all of them. 2. There is almost no room for customization. If you want any other feature or integration than what is already included in the “package”, changes like this will cost you quite a lot money, since DXPs are not meant for customizations.

The out-of-the-box feature set is way to small. Component-based systems – also known as headless solutions – are the complete opposite of DXPs. Instead of coming with every possible feature right from the start, you will need to add all features via additional extensions. 2. You don’t get a frontend presenting your content. As the name suggests, headless solutions come without a frontend and require you to build your own before being able to see any output.
