Learn about Uniform

Uniform enables you to build and maintain composable systems without having to build and maintain all the connections between those systems yourself.

Headless systems are designed to connect with other systems, integration is expected. However, this just means systems are composable. Composability requires an architecture that facilitates change with ease. Products must not be so tightly coupled that you're unable to update the products in your architecture. Composability means no one application is irreplaceable or dominant.

This is what Uniform is all about: making it possible for you to create a composable architecture without having to take on the responsibility to connect all of your products yourself.

A composable architecture is more than just a bunch of different products that are integrated in some way. Those systems have to work together like a single system. A key part of "working together" involves the ability for the system itself to manage aspects of how the component products interact with each other.

Orchestration is the ability of a system to manage, guide, or control the flow of data or processes that span multiple products. Uniform, as the foundation for a composable architecture, provides orchestration across the products that make up the architecture.

Examples of orchestration in Uniform include:

  • Making content and data from one product available to all other products in the tech stack, and doing it in a way that's appropriate for each of the target products.
  • Enabling omni-channel digital experience creation and deployment.

Uniform is comprised of these key features to provide the tools marketers and developers need to do their best work.
