CMS stands for Content Management System. A Web CMS is used to create, edit, manage, search, and publish various kinds of content on a Web page, for example: text, images, and digital media. A CMS does not require a user to have knowledge of HTML or CSS scripting. Instead, the focus is on developing rich and up-to-date content.
The CMS at New York University is called CQ5. It was created by Day Software, recently acquired by Adobe.
