Content Management Software

Content management software is a computer application that allows the user to create and manage digital content for use in-house by companies, or for publishing to websites, using a simple, user-friendly interface that negates the need for low-level coding when updating web page content. This allows a user with little coding or web building knowledge to schedule, add or remove content to or from a website. Content management software is largely split into two categories. The first, enterprise content management, handles in-house company content such as document management, records retention, and digital asset management. The second, web content management includes a publishing function so even the most inexperienced HTML user can publish content to a web page. Selecting the right content management software is invaluable to businesses who want to create content rich websites quickly and efficiently, or create an efficient system for handling in-house company content.
