Content Management System (CMS)

Definition - What does Content Management System (CMS) mean?

A content management system (CMS) is an interface that allows users to publish content directly to the Web. The process of adding content pages directly to the Web is one step ahead of creating and uploading pages from a local machine because it allows a large number of people to add and share the data remotely.

Techopedia explains Content Management System (CMS)

A content management system provides a simple, accessible website interface that can be used to add content to a page in a highly structured manner. The overall approach of a CMS is to allow for the generation of standards-compliant content.

Generally, access to a CMS is defined for a particular set of users who can view, add, edit and publish the content within the CMS. This reduces duplicate work by allowing privileged users to view the work status of content that has already been worked on by other users in the group.

The CMS allows users to create, edit and publish content from anywhere and at any time. Because content is added to the CMS server, the operational aspects of the CMS are not installed on users' personal computers.

Content management systems are categorized into four different types: enterprise content management systems, Web content management systems, Web group content management systems and component content management systems.
