While browsing the internet, we are largely focused on the immersive and engaging websites – the frontend. We experience the content, which is essentially the essence of every website. But, rarely do we think about how these various forms of content are published on the websites. This is where Content Management System (CMS) comes into play.
“Content management systems (CMS) are nearly as old as the world wide web and can be traced back to August 6, 1991, when Tim Berners Lee laid the foundation of the WWW with the creation of hypertext (HTML) and launching the first website at CERN. Consequently, this led to an inflation of content being created and the need to properly write, publish and update this content,” mentions Peter Lasinger, founding partner of 3VC – a Vienna-based venture capital fund – in an exclusive guest post on the evolution of CMS for Silicon Canals.
