A web content management system (CMS) is software that facilitates creation and management of a dynamic collection of web-based content. Most web CMSs are used to enhance productivity while collaboratively managing content. Automated templates, browser-based editing interfaces and ready-to-use feature sets for increased site functionality are also used with a web CMS. Using such a CMS, however, requires a steep learning curve, involving learning numerous technical details. As applications associated with the site are tied to the framework, some flexibility issues are also compromised. Hence, the decision to build or convert to a dynamic website using a web CMS remains challenging. This paper analyzes the effectiveness of web CMSs in delivering websites with different characteristics. A detailed report on web CMS based websites is presented based on their implementation, performance, productivity, maintainability, scalability and cost of operation.
