A Content Management System, or CMS, is a software application that enables users to create, modify, and publish digital content and websites.
CMS platforms typically include built-in infrastructure, editing, and publishing capabilities, and allows users to create and manage website content without requiring deep technical knowledge.
Popular CMS tools include WordPress, Joomla, and Magento, and each can serve broad or niche content management needs depending on user requirements.
