Content Management System (CMS) could be the most exciting breakthroughs of the 21st century. It would appear that we have reached the limits of what it is possible to achieve with Content Management System, titlehough one should be careful with such statements, as they tend to sound pretty silly in 5 years.

At the risk of stating the obvious, it could be said that a content management system is quite simply - a system that manages content.

To fully understand what it is a CMS does, let us first define

a) What is content?

b) What it is we understand under its management and

c) What do we mean by a system?

What is Content?

Content is in essence, any type or 'unit' of digital information. It can be text, images, graphics, video, sound, documents, records etc - or in other words - anything that is likely to be managed in an electronic format.

What is Content Management?

Content Management is effectively the management of the content described above, by combining rules, process and/or workflows in such a way that its electronic storage is deemed to be 'managed' rather than 'un-managed'.

What is the CM System?

The system itself is definable as a tool or combination or tools that facilitate the efficient and effective production of the desired 'output' using the managed content.

Combining all the three, we can say;

"A CMS is a tool that enables a variety of (centralized) technical and (de-centralized) non technical staff 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 electronic content."

The need for a Web Content Management System (Web CMS)

At Adweb, we realized that today's businesses are overwhelmed with the need to create more content, more quickly, customized for more customers and for more media than ever before. They need to control their enterprise content and determine how to leverage their web content to address all their customer information and media needs.

Since an organization’s content is ever changing, the Web CMS solution one chooses must be flexible enough to accommodate not just today's needs, but also tomorrow's. Choosing a content management system (CMS) is not easy. There are hundreds of products in the marketplace, all with highly-variable capabilities. In this rapidly-evolving environment, the challenge is to find the CMS that best matches ones business needs.
