A content management system (CMS) is a set of tools that allows a person to update a website's content without requiring advanced technical skills – like HTML authoring. Even if the owner plans to hire staff or outsource their website updating function, having a CMS will: significantly reduce the technical skills required to perform updates; reduce the manhours used for updates staff, and/or; reduce the outsourcing bill.

There any many CMSs on the market and the choice of CMS depends mainly on the intended purpose of the website. In most cases a website template can be ported to your CMS of choice. This will enable said CMS to create and manage pages that look and feel like your preferred website template.

In summary, you deploy a content management system (CMS) to simplify and reduce the cost of website updates. You will use templates and themes with this CMS to control the look and feel of your website.
