What is a Content Management System (CMS)?
A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.
Most content management systems store your content in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. The CMS brings together the template and your content to create web pages.
Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. A bit of training and you are on your way to managing and maintaining your own site!
Why Use a Content Management System?
A CMS is easy, convenient & economical. A content management system will allow you the freedom to make changes to your Web site any time you want and requires almost no technical knowledge! No more waiting to make changes at the mercy of your web designer. You can make changes yourself, more frequently and without the cost of paying a web designer to do it for you.

This is of huge importance if things begin to go wrong with your current design company. Be smart - use Joomla!
