update and manage your site with ease?
You may be asking yourself, what is a Content Management System?
In its simplest terms, it is a system designed specifically to help users create and manage their websites. A CMS can help a business manage, update and maintain the many different resources, content types and various types of data that make up the front-end version of there website.
One of the major advantages of a CMS (other then its ability to organize your website backend) is its collaborative nature. Multiple users can log on and contribute, schedule or edit content to be published. With a web-based interface, a CMS can be access from anywhere by any number of users.
Another major advantage is that the systems allow non-technical people who don’t know programming languages to easily create and manage their own web content.

- How easy is it to create and edit content?
- How many different groups of users will there be?
- Is the platform SEO-friendly?
- How large is the developer community?
