Website Content Management System

A Web Content Management System (WCMS) is a program that helps in maintaining, controlling, changing and reassembling the content on a web page. Content is mostly kept in a database and assembled using a flexible language like XML or .Net. The user interacts with the system at the front through a normal web browser. From there the web pages can be edited while maintaining control on parts of the layout.

The key features of WCM systems are:

  • The ability to design and organize websites to provide efficient and effective access to relevant and up-to-date content
  • The ability to control and prepare the content for publication, including controlling content evaluation and approval before publication on the website, and
  • The automation of key parts of the publishing process.
