A content management system, often abbreviated as CMS, is software that helps users create, manage, and modify content on a website without the need for specialized technical knowledge.
A content management system (CMS) is computer software used to manage the creation and modification of digital content. A CMS is typically used for enterprise content management (ECM) and web content management (WCM).
One major advantage of a CMS is its collaborative nature. Multiple users can log on and contribute, schedule or manage content to be published. Because the interface is usually browser-based, a CMS can be accessed from anywhere by any number of users.
The second major advantage of a CMS is that it allows non-technical people who don’t know programming languages to easily create and manage their own web content. The drag-and-drop editors of a typical content management platform allows users to enter text and upload images without needing to know any HTML or CSS.
When a company uses a CMS to publish its web pages, it reduces its reliance on front-end developers to make changes to the website, making it quicker and easier to publish new web pages.
