Decoupled vs traditional CMS: How you can create an intelligent, multi-channel customer experience with multiple architectures

How do the latest decoupled systems stand up to the traditional CMS, and what are the benefits to the customer?

Customer experience is shaped by the multiple touch points that customers have with a company, such as pre- and post-sales, interacting with the website, the digital experience, and the customer services department.
