It's about having freedom and being in control.
With the increasingly dynamic nature of the Internet, your website can no longer be just static content. You need to update it from time to time. At times, you find that your outsourced IT support isn't effective any more. They either delay the process or they mess it up. It's time that you take website update into your own hand and it's time you consider a Content Management System, or CMS in short.
"A web content management system is a CMS designed to simplify the publication of Web content to Web sites, in particular allowing content creators to submit content without requiring technical knowledge of HTML or the uploading of files." - Wikipedia
