What is Content Management System (CMS)

Most used Content Management Systems

In the last two decades and especially nowadays modern websites are developed mostly with different types of Content Management Systems (CMS).

Unlike the older technologies at the dawn of the Internet and the 90s of the XX century, when the development and maintenance of a website was reserved for programmers and specialists in computer network administration, since the beginning of the XXI century various systems have been developed for content management, which made the publication and editing of content (texts, photos, videos, forms, presentations, etc.) available to site owners or their employees without the need for special knowledge of web technologies and programming languages.

The purpose of a content management system (CMS) is to allow you to edit and manage the content on your site yourself as something separate from the activity of building the site and its administrative maintenance, which you assign to site development professionals (for example to us from Backdrop Solutions).

This division of labor is especially useful for small and medium-sized businesses, non-governmental organizations and associations that do not have their own IT departments to build and maintain a website, but are usually dedicated to their goals and eager to publish new and interesting information about their activities on their website and on social networks, and this is essential for the success of their work, for marketing and search engine optimization which requires above all a significant amount of original content on the site.

Web design professionals, who develop your website with programming, networking and software tools, cannot know your business better than you do. The content management system allows them to focus on the technical details of building and maintaining your website, and you or your employees - on the creating and publishing of website's content.
