When it comes to data, texts and content, whether for online applications or in the form of traditional print media, nothing trumps excellent quality. Although … that’s not exactly true: data and content are only as good as their management and potential uses.
Information is only valuable
if it can be easily managed and published!

What is a Content Management System (CMS)?
Content management systems (CMS), also known as content management solutions or CMS programs, are software products that are used to manage content.
In most cases, this involves the managing and maintaining content for
- online applications or
- online portals.
The content of online services and websites includes far more than just text : videos, graphics, photos in various formats (e.g. JPG, PNG, PDF, MPEG 4 etc.) are just some of the media forms used on most websites.
It is important for any CM system to store and maintain data in a media-neutral manner, as the display format is not generated until it is accessed, especially in fully dynamic systems.
Good CM systems make data management simple and efficient.
A good CMS solution should make managing your content as simple as possible: this means that your employees should be able to use it to create and organize content and manage data, even if they have no background in content management and lack specific programming knowledge or relevant experience with HTML.
User – friendly interfaces, understandable structure and intuitive operation.
These are just a few of the things a CM system needs to have, in addition to an efficient support structure for dealing with any issues that may arise. On top of this, a wide range of training courses should also be available for your specific content management system.
Some of the more popular traditional content management systems (with attached databases) are:
|Joomla||Magento (e-commerce software)|
There are many open source (i.e. free) CM solutions available, and a number of others are available at a relatively low price. Open-source software (OSS) is software that is distributed with source code that can be read or modified by users.
Also, with OSS solutions there is often a multitude of program extensions (so-called plug-ins) , some of which have to be paid for while others are free. These serve to extend the functionality of the software as required. For these reasons, and because OSS solutions are usually free of charge, they are particularly popular and widespread.
