"...Being able to build a fully customizable front-end customer experience for your customers, but not changing or refactoring all of the backend technologies that your merchandising teams, your marketing teams, your e-commerce teams, your developers are using it in a day to day basis. That is the achieving goal of headless commerce. It really kind of starts with the customer experience and the flexibility."
