What is a CMS?
Wikipedia defines a content management system (CMS) as "a process or a system that is used to organize and facilitate collaborative collection of documents and other content."
In short, a CMS is a web-based application that allows multiple users to manage different parts of a website at varying permission levels. With their permission levels, they'll be able to edit website content, data, and applications.
Various web development companies globally rely on a CMS today as a customized web application for managing websites and web content. A CMS often requires special client software for editing and constructing articles.
