The content involved may be images, video, audio and multimedia as well as text. A  Content Management System (CMS) is a computer application that supports the creation and modification of digital content. It is typically used to support multiple users working in a collaborative environment. A Content Management System (CMS) is a tool for creating and managing digital content such as documents, text, web pages, videos and images.A content management system (CMS) is a software application or set of related programs that are used to create and manage digital content. CMSes are typically used for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Web Content Management (WCM). An ECM facilitates collaboration in the workplace by integrating document management, digital asset management and records retention functionalities, and providing end users with role-based access to the organization's digital assets. A WCM facilitates collaborative authoring for websites. ECM software often includes a WCM publishing functionality, but ECM webpages typically remain behind the organization's firewall.
