|A content management system (CMS) is a system used to manage the content of a Web site. |
Content management systems are deployed primarily for interactive use by a potentially large number of contributors. The content managed includes computer files, image media, audio files, electronic documents and web content.
The idea behind a CMS is to make these files available inter-office, as well as over the web.
A Content Management System would most often be used as an archive as well.
