|Advantages of a content management solution
A content management system will be driven by a database such as Microsoft SQL and it will produce the website in a dynamic, flexible way.
There are many advantages to this, such as elements of the site may be generated dynamically, where one content item such as an article about a product may be dependant on the product actually existing within the system and if the product is removed, so is the connected article. This effectively removes dead-ends within the system.
A quality content management solution can have other dynamic abilities such as allowing authors to generate dynamic polls and surveys and easily capture and publish the results.
Content management solutions can also be configured so that the user can personalise their experience of using your particular site, also you may want to have a website where the vast majority of the content is accessible to everyone, but you may want users to register to view other content or services. This may be access to discussion groups or forums, classified adverts or the ability to add information to the system as a registered user.
