Content Management Systems (CMS)

CMS stands for "Content Management System." A CMS is a software tool that allows you to create, edit, and publish content. While early CMS software was used to manage documents and local computer files, most CMS systems are now designed exclusively to manage content on the Web.

The goal of a CMS is to provide an intuitive user interface for building and modifying webpage content. Each CMS also provides a web publishing tool that allows one or more users to publish updates live on the Web. The editing component is called the content management application (CMA), while the publishing tool is called the content delivery application (CDA). These two components are integrated together in a CMS to streamline the web development process.

Content management systems are used on millions of websites around the world, and with thousands of different options to choose from, which one is right for you? There are proprietary systems that generally require a once off or monthly fee for use and there are open-source systems that are free to use, some are written in PHP, some in .NET, some have limited functionality, and some can be extended to do just about anything! Here are the top 5 CMS's SecureIT Dublin would recommend:  Wordpress, Joomla, ModX, Drupal and DotNetNuke.

Take Control of Your Website

Content Management System's are a flexible, cost-effective solution, perfectly designed for entrepreneurs, small to medium size companies, organizations and associations. Content management systems are most typically used in a modern web environment to enable organizations to move beyond a standard series of web pages, and implement more dynamic features for content creation into their website including blogs, discussion forums, event calendars, and user profiles (social networking). These types of websites are becoming more common due to the rise of social media and the desire for groups with a common interest to be able to come together and make a platform where the community can thrive online.
