A CMS is a tool that enables you to create, edit, manage, and finally publish (in a number of formats) a variety of content such as text, graphics, video, documents etc, whilst being constrained by a centralized set of rules, process and workflows that ensure coherent, validated e-content. In other words, Content Management System (CMS) is a system providing a collection of procedures used to manage work flow in a collaborative environment. These procedures can be manual or computer-based.
The procedures are designed to do the following:
- Allow for a large number of people to share and contribute to stored data
- Access Control to data based on user role
- Facilitate storage and retrieval of data
- Control data validity and compliance
- Reduce duplicate inputs
- Simplify report writing
- Improve communication among users
You will find that a good quality CMS is going to help you by simplifying all activities when it comes to publishing content, revision control, easy search, indexing, easy retrieval of content, among other activities. You can write reports easily and avoid duplicate content as much as you want to. In a CMS, data can be defined as nearly anything: documents, movies, text, pictures, phone numbers, scientific data, and so forth. CMSs are frequently used for storing, controlling, revising, semantically enriching, and publishing documentation. Serving as a central repository, the CMS increases the version level of new updates to an already existing file. Version control is one of the primary advantages of a CMS.
Some of the advantages of these platform are:
- Low Cost
