Is a content management system right for my business?

What is a content management system (CMS). It is database driven site allowing one or many different authors to fully or part control and maintain the content of a web site. The most obvious advantage to using a content management system is that your web site can be managed with virtually no knowledge of how to construct or maintain web pages.

The ability for nominated staff with little or no technical skills to add content to standardised pages that follow the corporate style of your web site, makes a content management system a powerful tool for and organisation looking to take control of its web site.
The level of management is very flexible. You may wish to take full or part control, or leave management to an outside agency.
In our experience we have found that clients often have one or two particular areas where in house management is advantageous.
