NOS is a WCMS, a Web Content Management System Software, implemented as a web application, for creating and managing online news portals and is used to manage and control a large, dynamic collection of web content.
NOS facilitates content creation, content control, editing and essential web maintenance functions.
NOS software provides authoring (and other) tools designed to allow users with either no or little knowledge of programming or markup languages to create and manage content with ease.
NOS uses a powerful database to store content, metadata or artifacts that might be needed by the system. Content is frequently stored as XML to facilitate, reuse, and enable flexible presentation options.
A presentation layer displays the content to website visitors based on a set of templates. The templates are also XSLT files.
NOS uses server-side caching to further boost performance.
Administration is through browser-based interfaces.
Unlike most websites, NOS allows non-technical users to make changes to it with little training. NOS is primarily a website maintenance tool for non-technical or busy administrators.

Capabilities of the NOS Content Management System
Simplicity and functionality
NOS is a software system used to control a dynamic collection of web material (HTML documents, images and other forms of media).
NOS facilitates document control, auditing, editing, and timeline management. Everything a WCMS typically has and more.
Create standard output templates (usually HTML and XML) that can be automatically applied to new and existing content, allowing the appearance of all content to be changed from one central place.
Easily editable content
Once content is separated from the visual presentation of a site, it usually becomes much easier and quicker to edit and manipulate. NOS software includes WYSIWYG editing tools allowing non-technical individuals to create and edit content.
Scalable feature sets
NOS software includes plug-ins and modules that can be easily installed to extend an existing site's functionality.
Web standards upgrades
NOS benefits from regular auto-updates that include new feature sets to keep the system up to current web standards.
Workflow is the process of creating cycles of sequential and parallel tasks that can be accomplished in the NOS. For example, a content creator can submit a story, but it is not published until the copy editor cleans it up and the editor-in-chief approves it.
NOS allows various user groups to have limited privileges over specific content on the website, spreading out the responsibility of content management.
NOS can provide a means of managing the life cycle of a document from initial creation time, through revisions, publication, archive and document destruction.
NOS can provide a means of allowing each user to work within a virtual copy of the entire website, document set, and/or code base. This enables changes to multiple interdependent resources to be viewed and/or executed in context prior to submission.
NOS assists in content distribution by generating RSS and Atom data feeds to other systems. NOS may also e-mail users when updates are available as part of the workflow process.
Ability to display content in multiple languages. NOS currently supports 64 languages.
NOS contains a set of tools, products and services to generate revenue from the web for printed publications and for the website itself. This is not only using traditional banner advertising, but through utilizing useful and advanced solutions for advertisers to combine online and print campaigns.
