Content management system

A content management system (CMS) is a software program for creating, editing and managing digital content, e.g. on a website. The software runs on a specialised computer, a web server. WordPress, Joomla, TYPO3 and Drupal are among the best-known open source CMS systems. With open source software, the source code is available to all, and anyone can use it, continue to develop functions and even create their own functionality. All without licence fees or dependency on a company. It is estimated that there are currently around 300 different content management systems on the market.
