What is a Data (Content) Management System)?
The Data Management System (DMS) is the core component in a web or mobile application architecture. It provides all the tools for the essential operation of the application, this can be summarised as follows:
Software Module DB schema controller - This is used by software developers to add, configure, remove data items to/from the database tables that a software module uses to store data. See the user guide Module Configuration for more information.
Data entry and validation controller - Data entry is the essential for any web or mobile application; the DMS provides the user interface for this process to occur.
Data import/export utility - There is often a need to bulk-upload (or update) data (see user guide Import/Export for more information)
