What is WCMS?

Randy Apuzzo 03.23.2017

A Web Content Management System (WCMS) is a software that manages web content. There are few attributes that make it different from a traditional Content Management System (CMS). They are as follows:

  • Cloud Driven
  • No Installations
  • Automatic Updates
  • SaaS Pricing Model
  • Automatic Scaling
  • Accessible through any Web Browsers

These may not sound like a big difference, but they truly do reduce labor and inefficiencies found in traditional content management systems (CMS). The reduction comes from the lack of IT personnel needed to work on servers, update software, and prepare for scale.
