CMS Fiona consists of several components with which content can be edited (editorial system) and made available (live system) within the context of an online-publication (for example on a website).

This section describes the tasks of the components with respect to the system as a whole and how they communicate with each other in order to fulfill their respective tasks.

Jumping ahead with the function descriptions in the next section, the following diagram shows the architecture of the editorial system and the live system as well as the data flow during a content update and the request forwarding on the live system:

The Search Cartridge is an optional component which needs to be licensed separately.
