CMS functions for web apps
CMS functions can be divided into the following categories:
Content creation: provides authors with convenient and familiar means of creating content.
Management: stores content in a single repository. This allows you to monitor document versions, control who changed them and when, as well as make sure that each user can only change the section for which he is responsible. In addition, integration with existing information sources and IT systems is provided. CMS supports the document flow control. Content management includes storing, versioning, access control, integration with other information systems and document flow control.

Publication: automatic placement of content in the user terminal. Appropriate tools automatically customize the page appearance for it to match the website design.
Presentation: additional functions that improve the presentation of data; for example, you can build navigation through the repository structure.
CMS manage small interrelated information units. In this context, the document takes on the meaning of hypertext.
Advantages of the content management system web development:
- Fast information update: the information is published by the employee who owns it without additional intermediaries in the form of technical specialists.
- Reduced costs of support: information is updated independently, so there is no need to pay for the webmaster’s work.
- Additional services for the user: some services (search, forums, voting, etc.) require user interaction. They are already implemented as part of CMS.
- Reduced time and cost of development: the most popular functions are already implemented in CMS and can be immediately used.
- Development quality improvement: in the development are used repeatedly tested ready-made modules.
- Reduced costs of further modifications: CMS allows you to separate the data and its presentation. This makes it much easier to change the website appearance than on a static website.
To provide these benefits, CMS should solve the following tasks:
- Publication of information by a non-technical specialist.
- Separation of data and its presentation.
- Organizing collaboration when publishing information.
- Search opportunities
- Other services: forums, polls, profiles, etc.
