Get some CMS Power

In essence a CMS is an application that allows you to edit, modify, and publish content from a single interface in collaborative work environments.

Nowadays it is often used as blog software.

Why would you need a CMS?

Remember the part about being able to manage and organize a large amount of content? You can use the CMS as a central repository for all kinds of content from documents and images to storing full length movies.
