What is a CMS? A 'web content management' (WCM) system is a CMS designed to simplify the publication of Web content to Web sites, in particular allowing content creators to submit content without requiring technical knowledge of HTML or the uploading of files.
How does that effect me? Having your website sit on the framework of a content management system means that simple updates to content and feature capabilities can be done far quicker then websites that do not have a content management system framework. In many cases, updates to content on the website can actually be made by the customer with NO programming experience at all, and be done online in the web browser (Internet explorer or FireFox). This feature alone could save you thousands of dollars spent paying your webmaster to update a few key pieces of information regularly.
