What is a CMS ???

This is based on MCMS (Microsoft Content Management Server)

The design features of CMS include the ability to create templates that define the layout of the pages for your Web site. These templates will contain placeholders for content that is created by your business users.

Using the Web Author tool, users can:

  • Create, modify, and delete pages
  • Copy and move pages
  • Create connected pages that share source content with other pages but display that information in different ways
  • Submit pages for review and approval


The Authoring Connector can be used to submit a Microsoft Word document to the Web site and associate that document with a particular task that has been created in the Web site. When the author selects a task, the task itself will perform the required functions, abstracting the author from the workflow required to correctly publish the document to the Web site. Hence, it becomes as simple as using Word to create the document and then submitting the document under a chosen task to ensure the document is approved and published as desired.

Other features of CMS include the ability to schedule content publication for a future point in time. Pages can be expired or set to remain on the site indefinitely. Moreover, before content is actually published, authors will have the opportunity to review exactly how that information will appear on the Web page, giving the author the ability to ensure that the information is both technically and visually correct.

CMS is integrated in Visual Studio .NET (VS.NET). The integrated development environment allows you to create and maintain CMS templates in VS. In addition, full support for template debugging is included in the VS debugger. Finally, template files can be managed and secured using Visual Source Safe or third-party source control tools. This allows your developers to maintain template integrity in a multideveloper environment. In addition, CMS also allows for third-party integration by using the .NET framework, Web services, and support for Extensible Markup Language (XML).

CMS also allows for a rapid deployment of a large Web site. In addition, CMS offers flexibility in quickly changing data across a large deployment to meet changing needs and demands. And because content can be kept up-to-date, visitors will find the site more informative and useful, leading to an increased positive end-user experience.

In short, CMS offers three overall features that form the foundation for an excellent e-commerce site:

  • A comprehensive system for Web site content management
  • A dynamic, up-to-date content delivery system
  • Rapid, efficient time-to-market for e-commerce sites

In addition to these features, you'll find that CMS stores content as objects, enabling reuse of content throughout your site. Because of the template-driven nature of presenting content, you'll also be able to target which content appears based on audience membership, device, and/or individual account information.

CMS dynamically generates Web pages from content objects and templates. But there are other components that ship with CMS 2002 that increase productivity for business and technical users. These components speed up site development, simplify integration and interoperability, and provide rapid deployment.

I have seen a lot of ads and services online that provide the facility to get higher page ranks on search engines.
