“ In a nutshell, Heartcore means: happy marketers who reduce their time to market, happy editors who create content early-on, and happy developers who get to use the latest tech.”

Emmanuel Tissera, Technical Lead at Luminary

A headless CMS with an Umbraco heart

Heartcore is the Umbraco CMS at its core. This means you get a backoffice and editor experience that’s been tested, used and praised for more than 15 years by over 500,000 people worldwide.  You get a service packed with features that’ll make working with your content more delightful, structured, logical and scalable. A core that’s strong - and gets stronger - without a single sit-up 😉

From the Heart to anywhere - and anyone

With its RESTful API, Umbraco Heartcore is the centre for any content you need to make available to your frontend - whatever that front might be e.g. apps, smartwatches, screens, smart speakers...anything really! Using fancy marketing lingo this means it's built for "omnichannel delivery". 

Fully serviced backoffice and managed APIs

With Umbraco Heartcore you don’t need to worry about keeping an extra codebase up to date - we’ll do it for you. This way you can spend your time and talent on the things you really love - like creating a jaw-dropping frontend or expanding your product line. Umbraco Heartcore comes with a managed API, which means that all your content, media etc. are automatically exposed via a REST API. We’re here to make it easy for you.

No delay, fast display

And it rhymes true. Heartcore ships with Content Delivery Network (CDN) capabilities using Cloudflare, providing you with a stable platform as well as fast delivery of your content to any frontend and users - wherever in the world they might be! Using data storage through servers near you, your users will never have to wait for your content.

Built-in GraphQL functionality

That means even more reduced loading times for users - regardless of their bandwidth. But it's even more than that.

You get ultimate flexibility when retrieving content, making unnecessary data over-fetching a thing of the past; and thanks to the GraphQL Playground, you never again have to worry about unfortunate typos or slip-ups in your code, giving you extra confidence when launching your project.  

The perfect fit for your microservices architecture

If you like the idea of a headless CMS to slot right into your framework, it makes sense to have the best editor experience you can get your hands on. 

Thanks to its flexibility and extendability, Umbraco Heartcore can be used as Content as a Service in a microservices architecture - and it's pretty powerful too.
