About the UB Content Management System (UBCMS)

CMS stands for Content Management System. A Web CMS is used to create, edit, manage, search and publish various kinds of content on a webpage, including text, images and digital media. A CMS does not require a user to have knowledge of HTML or CSS scripting. Instead, the focus is on developing rich and up-to-date content. 

About the Software

The UBCMS system uses an application called Adobe Experience Manager.
