Back in March, when the hype surrounding headless content delivery was at its peak, we implored headless CMS vendors to consider the marketers during the transition. Almost none of them were. That's when IBM digital offers specialist Manil Allal reached out via Twitter to proclaim that IBM did. Allal was referring to the IBM Watson Content Hub, a cloud-based headless CMS that, according to Allal, isn't just a plaything for the IT department. To verify his claims, CMSWire spoke to IBM principal offering manager David J. Strachan about the platform and what it means to marketers who feel isolated by the emergence of headless technology.
Recent tech news report that IBM's Watson has already been employed as a dress designer, a chef, and a movie director. But what is it exactly?
