Content Management Systems(CMS) Services

What is CMS?

In its simplest terms a CMS is a lot like a word processor in that you can edit documents in a WYSIWYG format. WYSIWYG stands for 'what you see is what you get', this type of document creation allows you to see exactly what the document will look like as you are typing and adding different elements.

Content management systems are also pretty complex. A good content management system acts more like a database than a word processor. The database is where you can link content together and keep a record of changes made to any web page or web page element.

Electronic content management systems have been around since computers were invented. But content management has been a problem since the beginning of the printing press, and some historians say that the problem began with the first written word.

The scope of this article is beyond the history of the content management systems, instead I'm going to focus on the most used content management systems today and give a brief over view of each system. The most popular content management systems are:

  • Drupal
  • Joomla
  • Word Press

These are the top three systems in use today as they are all popular among people that don't know how to create a website or haven't learned any HTML.

Drupal

Drupal was launched in 2000 in a dorm room at the University of Antwerp by two students who wanted to be able to share information with other each other and other classmates. It was named "Drop" for the first year until the creator, Dries Buytaert, graduated and moved out of the dorm room.

Joomla

Joomla is also free open source software that allows you to create websites and web pages easily once you get over the learning curve. You'll have to install and learn all of the modules to begin creating web pages.

Word Press

Word Press was released in 2003 and has become the benchmark for automated SEO optimization. Word Press plug-ins automates most of the tasks associated with making a website search engine friendly. This software also has to be installed unless you choose to let Word Press host your website on a sub domain such as "yourwebsite.wordpress.com".

Benefits of CMS

A content management system or CMS is an electronically or manually operated system used to manage workflow on an Internet system where more than one person can alter or add to a page. Basically, without a CMS, reports would have been difficult to write, data storage would not be possible, internet users would find it nearly impossible to edit content and communication between users would have been less effective. A CMS also has the crucial ability to prevent repetition of data to further save storage space. Examples of CMS's are Joomla, Scoop, Typo and Druple.

CMS's are often used to store, revise, control and publish documents. Different types of content management systems are used depending on the need and content of documentation. It makes it simpler for someone without technical knowledge to upload and submit content to a web page and to access content on mobile devices. Some of the first management systems were developed in the 1990's and new technology keeps developing from this initial idea. Some management systems address business issues such as standardization, record keeping, auditing and knowledge sharing and have been modified to convert content to and from digital format.

With the help of CMS you can easily manage the dynamic content of your site by adding new content, editing exiting content or publishing new content with great ease. You can also update your web portal as per your business requirement without any hassle. CMS also helps you to easily customize your website through different Plug Ins and Add Ons presently available in market place. CMS integration ensures much better security of content.

Reasons for choosing CMS services

Many websites have a lot in common, in particular, one and the same groups of functions: menus, contact and order forms, on-site search, user registration and authentication, comments, spam protection, news feeds, as well as image galleries, product catalogs, etc.

A content management system provides such typical functional blocks as a set of ready-made but customizable modules plus an environment to manage them, as well as some other functionality for writing, collaborative work, reporting, etc. Users can choose necessary modules and additional plug-ins, set them up in accordance with their needs and, as a result, essentially simplifies the website development as well as content (texts, images, video, documents) publication and update.

Moreover, CMSs help to:

  • Keep a website organized as a comprehensive whole
