Decoupled Drupal

Deliver content at scale across your application ecosystem, while ensuring flawless user experiences, with Decoupled Drupal.

Customers interact with your business across a variety of touch points. And it is imperative that they receive a consistent and intuitive experience at each interaction, no matter what the interface. So the way you present your content across digital properties has to be highly customized for each channel. 

But is that possible with a monolithic Drupal architecture? 

While Drupal is one of the most powerful enterprise content management systems today, it’s front-end capabilities, are a tad bit restrictive.

Enter Decoupled Drupal. 

This puts Drupal at the center, as content repository, that powers content delivery to a host of decoupled applications: browser apps, native apps, IoT devices, wearables, in-store display, in-flight entertainment, digital signage and more. And each of these applications are independent of the Drupal backend, and use its own frontend technology of choice to render the information for the end user.

Drupal also supports a host of web-service APIs and SDKs, that can enable the conversation between your Drupal backend and decoupled applications:

  • REST
  • JSON
  • GraphQL
  • Waterwheel.js
  • Waterwheel.swift
