What is CMS, or Content Management System?

A web content management system is a CMS designed to simplify the publication of web content to web sites and mobile devices, in particular, allowing content creators to submit content without requiring technical knowledge of HTML or the uploading of files.

Utilizing a CMS, or Content Management System, for your website can provide complete, or nearly complete, editorial and viewable control with the simplicity of clicking a mouse or typing some text. It can save a tremendous amount of time, money and resources as the user doesn't have to rely upon web designers, developers or others once it's in place.

In a CMS, data can be defined as almost anything - documents, movies, pictures, phone numbers, scientific data, etc. CMSs are frequently used for storing, controlling, revising, semantically enriching, and publishing documentation. Content that is controlled is industry-specific. For example, entertainment content differs from the design documents for a fighter jet. There are various terms for systems (related processes) that do this. Examples are web content management, digital asset management, digital records management and electronic content management. Synchronization of intermediate steps, and collation into a final product are common goals of each.

Conrad Digital Design has tested many CMS's such as Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, FlashMoto (CMS delivering content to Flash) and several others. We found many of them hard to use, inflexible, "klunky", ineffective support, not end-user friendly, easily hackable (security risk), and difficult to work with other types of code. We've chosen to use and provide CMS Ultima as the website owner's best CMS friend because of it's ease of use, flexibility in programming, MySQL-driven so it's fast with even tens or hundreds of thousands of records, customer friendly and extremely cost-effective and time-efficient. CMS Ultima also provides an outstanding ability to custom set Search Engine Optimization (SEO) - unlike no other CMS program. We should know because we have some of the best SEO specialists around. Results don't lie.

With CMS Ultima the business website owner doesn't have to no a single piece of html code or any other code - just point, click, type and save - and pages of content are built on the fly!
