Content Management

A wide-ranging term that generally refers to the practice of defining, creating, organizing, securing, reviewing, approving, publishing, and delivering content.

Content management is not specific to digital technology -- librarianship, for instance, is a form of content management--but is most often used in a digital context. Content management specifically around web content is sometimes abbreviated WCM.

A content management system is software that attempts to automate many of the tasks around this discipline. A content manager is a person tasked with perfoming this discipline.
