Organizations need flexibility in CMSes, as these systems transport content to many digital platforms, such as websites, mobile applications and digital displays.  A headless CMS can improve flexibility, as it enables back-end -- the body -- content creation and storage without a fixed front-end -- the head.

APIs to transport content, eliminating the need for multiple CMSes. Although people often associate headless technology with web content management systems, enterprise content management (ECM) systems have their own spin on this trend. ECM systems can evolve into content services, McKinnon said.

1. Headless technology

Content services are like ECM systems with more flexibility, as they use APIs to integrate different apps for seamless UX, like headless CMSes.  Headless technology and content services both offer organizations flexibility, as each service uses APIs to create various digital experiences.

2. Automation

AI and automation can save employees' time and automate emails, offer speech-to-text translations, extract data and more.  In 2022, McKinnon said she expects to see more AI adoption as ECM vendors partner with cloud providers to offer prepackaged algorithms that business professionals and developers can deploy with little AI expertise.

Organizations may struggle to build their own AI algorithms or choose which services to prioritize.  So, many CMS vendors have partnered with cloud providers to offer prepackaged algorithms, or bundles of different AI services like contact center analytics, document processing and image classification.

3. Personalization

Personalization can optimize UX for an organization's customers and employees. Whether a customer shops online or a journalist searches for an expert to interview, CMS personalization can help users accomplish goals and boost an organization's productivity.

4. Tool integration

As employees increasingly rely on technology, a constant need to launch, and switch between, separate tools can thwart efficiency.  To ensure employees can work seamlessly on various apps, an organization can choose a system that embeds all its tools into one interface. In the coming years, more developers may embrace an

5. Digital transformation

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced organizations to accelerate digital transformation, and this acceleration will likely continue.  At the start of the pandemic, many business leaders quickly adopted what they thought were short-term remote work strategies, which gradually became long-term.

5. Digital transformation

Permanent remote work means organizations must add to or improve the digital foundations they laid in 2020 -- especially tools or tactics they used as temporary fixes. In particular, organizations may look to further digitize paper-based processes, such as switching to e-signatures, McKinnon said. Organizations face pressures to make their content strategies
