There are six main categories of CMS[citation needed], with their respective domains of use:

[edit] Enterprise content management systems

An enterprise content management (ECM) system is concerned with content, documents, details, and records related to the organizational processes of an enterprise. The purpose is to manage the organization's unstructured information content, with all its diversity of format and location.

[edit] Web content management systems

A web content management (WCM) system is a CMS designed to simplify the publication of web content to web sites and mobile devices, in particular, allowing content creators to submit content without requiring technical knowledge of HTML or the uploading of files.

Several web based content management systems exist both in the Open Source and commercial domains. However, this is one area where OSS software have gained dominance over their proprietary counterparts.

[edit] Document management systems

A document management system (DMS) is a computer system (or set of computer programs) used to track and store electronic documents and/or images of paper documents.

[edit] Component content management system

Using a component content management system, content is stored and managed at the subdocument (or component) level for greater content reuse.
