What Is A Content Management System(CMS) ?
A Content Management System (CMS), is a type of web based software that has been designed specifically for those users who would prefer to be hands on in this area of there business and look after updating their website content themselves. It allows non-technical users within a company to add new content, remove and/or update old content and generally manage and maintain the website.
Typically, a CMS consists of two elements, the content management application (CMA) and the content delivery application (CDA). The CMA element allows a non-technical user who may not have any knowledge about (HTML), to manage new, modify, or the removal of content from a Website without needing the expertise of a Web Designer.
