In a world where digital advertising surpassed traditional advertising in 2016, brands still need to adapt to this new reality. Digital Transformation is a must for (almost) all companies to survive, however still many of them are struggling to find their digital way forward. While working in the digital space for over 12 years, I have seen many changes in the industry, and helped many clients improve their digital presence.

With the powerful web APIs it has become relatively easy to create decoupled applications with Drupal 8 as a backend. A number of lighthouse applications have been created and powerful demo systems and starterkits such as 'Reservoir' und 'Contenta' have emerged.

Usually decoupled applications are used to display content, but editing of content still takes place in the backend.
