Excerpt from Term Paper:

The visitors can also comment, add content, and edit online content. This has only been possible because of CMS. Using CMS individuals have also developed their own online profiles, which they use for advertising, job searching, and blogging.

As many people adopt the CMS technology and begin developing their own websites, there will be a possibility of increasing the number of online websites, and content searching will improve. There are still areas and fields that are lacking in online content. This is mainly because people who understand this area have no way of sharing their information with the general public. Once they understand how easily they can create online content using a CMS, they will most likely adopt the technology. Collaboration will improve as people will be sharing information all over the world, and improvements will be seen in the various projects that people are working on.

The economy will also benefit as there will be more people online and this will provide more avenues for advertisers and marketers. Marketers will have to create more appealing content to ensure that people are landing on their websites, and advertisers will have more spaces/websites where they can place their advertisements. With increased advertisement, the economy would benefit as more products would be sold globally and this would increase revenue for the producers and manufacturers.

Web developers will now focus more on improving the CMS templates instead of focusing on individual company websites. This will lead to more robust templates that can be used for different purposes and businesses. With the focus been on template development, the developers will also increase their revenue as more people will be willing to purchase the templates, which they will use for their personal websites, business, or organizations. Licensing the templates would result in a steady stream of revenue for the web developers. The developers would also have more time to improve the architecture of the CMS to make it easier to use, with additional functionality depending on the technological changes that are likely to occur in the future Black ()

The current CMS will also be improved, so that they can be easier for novice users. CMS's like Joomla, and Drupal are still very technical, which makes them less user friendly. These CMS's have been undergoing considerable changes, and in the future they will be quite easy to use and deploy. With the current developmental changes taking place one can be assured that in the future, all CMS's will be geared towards a specific user requirement, and not just content management and web administration.

Organizations will now easily be able to keep their websites updated. Using the WYSIWYG editor, online marketers will easily place and structure content like they do using any word processor. This would reduce an organization's marketing costs as the website would generate more traffic based on the frequent changes to its content. Marketers would also have an easy time editing the content as they would have access to all the content on the website. This would reduce the amount of time normally taken if they had a web consultant who manages the website. Organizations could also start using CMS for the electronic record management. A CMS like MediaWiki organizations can manage all its documents and product features easily and from a centralized location. This CMS allows for the collaboration of different departments, and individuals and provides functionality for modification of information McNally ()

. All changes are normally recorded, and they can be viewed by all authorized users.


CMS's are mostly used for web development, but they can also be used for other offline purposes like document and record management within an organization. Individuals should understand the simplicity of using CMS, and this will increase the popularity of this technology. With the technological advancements taking place, it is likely that CMS will become the widely used online technology. This will be for both business and personal activities. Marketers will have an easy time working on their websites, and they can edit and add content whenever they want. Collaboration will increase and various people located in different parts of the world can work on a single project.
