Let’s understand CMS in an interesting way. Consider Jerry is having a business website and is aware of all the nitty-gritty of marketing the website but lacks in technical knowledge. Now, whenever he needs some changes in the website he has to ask his developer for the change.
It is not possible that the developer will be available all the time; so he has to wait for the developer for basic website changes like uploading an image or an article. If Jerry had a web content management system then could have done those changes all by himself.
All Jerry have to do was log into the admin panel of the website, browse for the page and apply the correction. A Content Management System (CMS) doesn’t require the knowledge of HTML for making small changes as it is based on WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) feature.
Now that you have a knowledge of what a CMS is and What it can do for you. The next step is; selecting the right CMS. There are a lot of CMS available that serve a unique functionality and have a separate set of feature modules and plugins.
