A content management system (CMS) enables users to create, change, and publish digital documents, images, audio, video, maps, and content in other formats within a collaborative environment. Often guided by governance procedures and workflows, users perform document management for a website.
CMSs usually consist of a content management application that allows users to add, change, and delete content from a website without needing help from IT and a content delivery application that compiles the content and publishes it on the website.
Typically, CMSs include most of the following features:
- Web-based publishing
- Online documentation
- Template support
- Version control
- Audit logs
- User and permission management
- Group functionality
- Installation and upgrade wizards
- Compliance with accessibility standards
- Indexing and search
- Style management
- Less need to code
- Search engine optimization (SEO)
