Use Cases for which Structr is Perfect

Even though Structr is basically suitable for any application due to its flexibility and expandability at all levels, there are tasks for which it is particularly well suited, as it has a lot of built-in functionality for these. There are also reference projects from which you can learn.

Structr Use Case

Content Hub / Headless CMS

A Content Hub serves as a central data source for digital content of all kinds and can be integrated into any technical infrastructure and processes thanks to its flexible interfaces. It is also known as a Headless CMS, as it can be used perfectly as the backend of a classic content management system.

The main task of a content hub is to map content objects from the connected systems, categorize them with uniform metadata and make them findable via a central search.


  • Central data source for digital content
  • Integrates well with surrounding systems
  • Backend for individual web applications and other CMS
  • Central search and unified metadata
  • Extensible data schema and persistence in a native graph database (Neo4j)
  • Low-code tools for schema evolution and API definition
  • Page builder for creating individual content authoring user interfaces
  • Full web stack for building websites and apps for content display

The Structr Content Hub fulfills this requirement profile with ease. It stores all relevant data in a native graph database (Neo4j).

It also has low-code tools with which the data schema, functionality and user and technical interfaces can be flexibly expanded, adapted in short iterations and customized to individual requirements.

Structr can also be used to create individual web applications for maintaining and displaying content.

Structr Use Case

Knowledge Graph

Companies achieve significant competitive advantages when organizing existing knowledge as a network or graph and link it to the people involved. The structures created in this way become even more valuable when organizations use them to infer future situations from existing past and present information.


  • Organize an organization’s knowledge in a graph
  • Link data from departmental silo systems in one unified information resource
  • Enable stakeholders to control their own data and benefit from the other’s information
  • Introducing a Knowledge Graph is a win-win-win for the entire organization
  • Perfectly suited because of the native graph database backend
  • Comprehensive permissions allows fine-grained access control
  • Low-code tools allow building of role-specific apps for authoring and accessing data
  • Scalable architecture enables organizations to start small and grow organically

Structr is perfectly suited for building Knowledge Graph solutions because it optimally combines the advantages of storing information in a context-rich network, a knowledge graph, with the possibilities of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Structr also offers the ability to create custom applications that are tailored to the organization’s specific knowledge graph, making perfect use of its information and providing users with new insights.

Structr Use Case

Digital Asset & Document Management

Digital asset management systems store media such as images, audio and videos as well as digital documents in a network file system with metadata in a central database, in which they are categorized uniformly using a keyword catalog to enable efficient searching and filtering.

In addition, DAMs allow workflows to accompany the lifecycle of documents from creation, editing, approval and use through to archiving, so that users have control over their assets at all times. Of course, secure access protection must ensure that confidentiality levels and usage rights are adhered to at all times and everywhere when used across organizations or even beyond organizational boundaries.


  • Storage of any media like images, audio, video and digital documents
  • Network file system and central metadata database
  • Unified categorization and keyword catalog
  • Efficient search and filter functions
  • Lifecycle workflows
  • Secure access control system
  • Storage of binary files on local, server, cloud and archive systems
  • Metadata managed in native graph database
  • Comprehensive filter tools
  • Semantic/similarity search and AI integration
  • Content enhancement via GenAI tools

Structr features a complete implementation of a DAM that allows storage of text and binary data in any local or cloud file system and metadata in the integrated native graph database. With its unique technology, Structr allows the definition of your own arbitrary custom directory, file and document types with custom attributes as well as individual workflows. Furthermore, any folder, media asset or document can be linked to any other data object.

You can easily develop individual DAM and document management applications and access your data via standard file protocols such as (S)FTP, SSH or WebDAV/HTTP(S). All content is automatically indexed in full text and is searchable. Advanced functions such as word extraction and a thesaurus complete the wide range of outstanding features.

Structr Use Case

Product Information Management (PIM)

Today’s products are becoming increasingly complex with the growing demands of customers in terms of individuality and are therefore no longer manageable with classic product information management systems.

New ways need to be found for current and future PIM system requirements, and one realization of where the path is leading is the use of graph technology, especially native graph databases as a persistence engine.


  • Today's products and customization are too complex for relational databases
  • Graph technology and native graph databases are the way of the future
  • Customized, easy-to-use user interfaces are what users demand
  • System integration and product lifecycle workflows are a must
  • A generation of heavyweight PIM solutions will soon be obsolete
  • Native graph database for efficient management of BOM and other product structures
  • Extensible data schema to adapt to any product domain
  • Individual user interfaces possible with low-code application builder
  • Seamless system integration via configurable APIs
  • High security standards thanks to a three-level access control system
  • Fast data access and low latency with GQL/Cypher queries

Structr is the only system on the market that, with its unique combination of low-code and graph technology, makes even the most complex product structures manageable and offers the necessary flexibility for a customized PIM.
