People usually think that cms are just site-building tools or some of them describe it as some different features. But the question still remains the same. What is CMS ?

Technically speaking its definition is very vast and complex. Not only that it has branches also. Well to say that it manages the content is not wrong, that is what a content management system does but enterprises use it for managing their employee info with some extra features which can be some algorithm and all is called ECM or ECMS (enterprise content management system).

Now let’s talk about WCMS ( Web content management System). From its name, it is clear it is used for managing the content of the website. Which pages have what content, where it goes is managed by WCMS. We can say it like CMS as it also manages content through the dashboard.

Well now a day’s people termed WCMS as CMS especially in web-development I can’t say it the completely right or completely wrong. Through functionality, we can say WCMS is a subset of  CMS. In simpler terms, we can say that What so ever be CMS, ECMS or WCMS it just a content management tool which makes user to easily maintain and manage their contents. These are termed as different only on basis of their uses.
