A content management system or CMS is a document centric system used to control or manage the content of a website. Content management systems are frequently web applications that manage websites and any of the content there. When content management systems are applied, they are usually meant to allow inter-office control of the content, as well as over the web, and as a company archive. The different types of content that a content management system may encounter and control can include:
Electronic workflow uses CMS to send electronic documents through different departments in a company for updates or approvals. This form of the content management system is more for use within the company to make sending documents inter-office easier than being used to manage anything that visitors to a website will see before being published online. More specifically, web content management systems, which are a form of regular content management systems, may use such a system to store industry-specific documentation, as well as helping to publish web content.
Web content management systems are also used frequently because they include additional features that ease the tasks needed to publish web content to websites. This can make it easier for companies with little time to spare towards publishing content. Some of the features of this particular content management system are:
Web standards upgrades
