Content Management Systems (CMS)

A content management system (CMS) supports the creation, management, distribution, publishing, and dissemination of information to the World Wide Web.

It covers the complete implementation of the pages on your site, providing simple tools to allow you or your designated staff to create the content, publish it, and maintain an archive of your published materials.

It also provides the ability to manage the structure, the consistent appearance of the pages, and the efficiency of navigation.

Why Use CMS?

There are serious considerations for business efficiencies that can be achieved by committing to a CMS, including:

  • simplified authoring process
  • improved turnaround time for added pages and changes
  • general consistency
  • more efficient site navigation
  • heightened site flexibility
  • authoring from anywhere on the Web
  • heightened security
  • greater control of information
  • improved capacity for growth
  • lower site maintenance costs

CMS can provide organization for your business goals and strategies.

How Does CMS Work?

The functionality of a content management system can be broken down into several main categories:

  • content development
  • content management
  • publishing new content
  • presenting fresh content

Content creation with CMS

In the Administration Section of our content management system you will find an easy-to-use authoring environment (WYSIWYG - What You See Is What You Get), designed to work much like MS Word. This provides a less-technical way of creating new pages or updating content, without having to know any HTML coding.

The CMS also allows you to manage and organize the entire structure of your site. You can decide where the pages go, and how they are organized.

Almost all content management systems now provide Web-based authoring , which further simplifies implementation, and allows content updating to be done remotely. You will be able to manage your Web site from anywhere you can connect to the Internet.

It is this content management tool that is the key to the success of the CMS. By providing a simple mechanism for maintaining the site, authoring can be meted out into the business itself. For example, your Listings Manager maintains the listing engine, while your Advertising Director keeps the advertising up-to-date.

Content Management

Once a Web site page has been created, it is saved into a central database in the CMS. This stores all the content of the site, along with the other supporting information.

This central databank allows a range of essential features available in the CMS:

  • Keeping track of all the versions of a page.
  • Ensuring that each editor can change the section they are responsible for.
  • Integration with existing information.
  • Critically, the CMS provides a range of centralized capabilities.

Publishing

Once the final content is in the database, it can then be published out to your Web site.

Content management systems boast powerful publishing engines which allow the appearance and page layout of the site to be applied automatically during publishing. It may also allow the same content to be published to multiple sites.

Of course, every site looks different, so the CMS lets the graphic designers and Web developers specify the appearance that is applied by the system.

These publishing capabilities ensure that the pages are consistent across the entire site, and enable a very high standard of appearance.

This also allows the authors to concentrate on writing the content by leaving the look of the site entirely to the CMS.

The CMS fully automates the publishing of your site.

Presentation

The content management system can also provide a number of features to enhance the quality and effectiveness of your Web site.

For instance, the CMS will build the site navigation for you.

The CMS can be used to make your site dynamic and interactive, thereby enhancing the site's impact.

It lessens the chance for site wide errors.
