What is a CMS?
A content management system (CMS) is a software application used to upload, edit, and manage content displayed on a website. CMS can perform a variety of different tasks for a website including regulating when content is displayed, how many times the content is shown to a specific user, and managing how the content connects or interacts with other elements of the website. This software also enables less technical individuals to manage content on a website easily without having an extensive coding background.
What is AEM?
NYU uses a web-based CMS called Adobe Experience Manager (AEM, previously known as Adobe CQ) which does not require the user to have knowledge of HTML or CSS scripting. Instead, the software allows users to focus on developing and maintaining content through drag and drop components.
