What is CMS?Sunday, November 9, 2008 19:31
CMS stands for ‘content management system’, and is a computer software system that enables you to organize, create, modify and delete content such as documents and graphics on your website.
There are three main types of CMS systems currently in use:
- Enterprise content management systems (ECM) – this was created by AIIM (Association for Information and Image Management) and is described as ‘the technologies used to Capture, Manage, Store, Preserve, and Deliver content and documents related to organizational processes’.
- Web content management systems (WCM) this is designed to simplify the publication process of website content, and allows authors and content creators to submit documents and graphics to a website, without the need for extensive technical knowledge of file uploading procedures or HTML creation.
- Component content management systems (CCM) – this system manages structured content such as XML, and allows content to be broken down and shared, reviewed, updated, or re-used into new publications.
