The main task of a web CMS is the creation of websites for the WWW and the display via webbrowser. As with CMS in general, the core function is database-driven content creation. Special functions allow the provision of news with comment functions, forms, calendars, FAQs, search functions, the automatic creation of sitemaps or multilingual user interfaces.

Software market

The web CMS software market is shared between standard systems and open source solutions, whose well-known representatives are Typo3, Wordpress or Contao. The performance ranges from simple free offerings to enterprise solutions, so a clear positioning is required.

Web CMSs can be components within standard systems for digital marketing or PIM (Product Information Management) as self-developed modules to provide integrated solutions. In other constellations, Web CMSs are connected by means of interfaces.
