A content management system, often abbreviated as CMS, is software that helps users create, manage, and modify website content, usually without the need for specialized technical knowledge. Or, simply put – a content management system is a tool that helps build and maintain a website without writing code.
Rather than building a system for creating different web pages, images, and other content, a content management system handles basic global infrastructure of the website design.
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.
