    A content management system (CMS) is the collection of procedures used to manage work flow in a collaborative environment. These procedures can be manual or computer-based. The procedures are designed to:

    • Allow for a large number of people to contribute to and share stored data
    • Control access to data, based on user roles. User roles define what information each user can view or edit
    • Aid in easy storage and retrieval of data
    • Reduce repetitive duplicate input
    • Improve the ease of report writing
    • Improve communication between users
    In a CMS, data can be defined as nearly anything - documents, movies, pictures, phone numbers, scientific data, etc. CMSs are frequently used for storing, controlling, revising, semantically enriching, and publishing documentation.
