What is a Content Management System?

A Content Managemet System (CMS) is a computer application designed to allow users to collaboratively create, store, edit, review, index, search, publish and archive various kinds of digital media and electronic text. In practice this means a collection of users can work together to create rich documents and have the CMS manage all aspects of the life of the document.
