Easy Website Maintenance Using Content Management Systems
In the early days of the web, maintaining a website required extensive knowledge of HTML, scripting and other skills. A dedicated webmaster was a significant expense to a company and organizations that couldn't afford the cost were left with an underdeveloped online presence. Modern businesses can use content management systems to set up, change and maintain websites with very little technical knowledge.
What Is A Content Management System?
A content management system (CMS) is a collection of procedures used to manage work flow in a collaborative environment. These procedures can be manual or computer-based. CMS may also be known as web content management, digital asset management, digital records management and electronic content management. Despite the different names, synchronization of intermediate steps, and collation into a final product are common goals of each.
CMS procedures are designed to:
Allow for a large number of people to contribute to and share stored data
Control access to data, based on user roles. User roles define what information each user can view or edit
Aid in easy storage and retrieval of data
Reduce repetitive duplicate input
Improve the ease of report writing
Improve communication between users
In a CMS, data can be defined as nearly anything - documents, movies, pictures, phone numbers, scientific data, etc. CMSs are frequently used for storing, controlling, revising, semantically enriching, and publishing documentation.
