content management application (CMA)
A content management application (CMA) is the front end component of
a content management system (CMS). The CMA
interface allows users to create and manage corporate or website content.
A CMA usually includes templates that automate many of the repetitive aspects of content
creation and editing. Most current CMAs provide a WYSIWYG (what you see
is what you get) interface, which makes it possible for users to create and work with content
without using HTML.
A CMA for website content allows users to create, edit, and remove site content. Enterprise
content management (ECM)
applications typically have more complex requirements. According to Gartner Inc., ECM suites must
have the following core components in addition to Web content management: document management,
document imaging, records management, workflow and document-centric collaboration.
