What is CMS?

As the name suggests, CMS or ‘Content Management System’ is a program that allows website managers and administrators to modify, maintain and build websites without little or no knowledge of coding. Technically, it is a collaboration of various technologies to provide a platform for developing and maintaining all kinds of websites. CMS have gained popularity in the last half-decade and is now a de-facto choice for many web development firms to build websites of any kind. Moreover, unlike the popular perception, getting a ready made CMS for your website is not very expensive.


Content Management Systems have many advantages over proprietary web development frameworks. These include flexibility, customizability, feasibility and affordability.


Content Management Systems gives complete freedom to the end users in terms of editing or managing their sites without external help from a developer or a designer. This reduces cost and time required for going though the lengthy process of hiring professionals and delegating tasks. Instead, even users without technical skills can modify most aspects of their website with the help of the Graphic User Interface provided by the CMS. Custom modifications to content management systems like WordPress, Magento, etc. increase their ability to cater to the clients’ needs by manifolds. Expert CMS based web developers are professionals who specialize in modifying the CMS itself.


Most content management systems are open-source and hence, can be customized as per the needs of the end-user without any licensing issues. This allows custom CMS developers to build almost any kind of website with any level of complexity. Moreover, CMS are usually crowd-sourced, which means fellow developers from all over the world continuously chip-in with inputs, tips, tricks, add-ons and utilities for making these platforms more and more comprehensive and cutting-edge. This ensures that the content management systems get auto-updated from time-to-time and hence the users can rest assured that their website will run on the latest platforms that the technology has to offer
