Oh, yes, For dynamic and static content and a large number of pages (and I assume, contributors) using a CMS may be your best option.

Curiously, yesterday night I was thinking of doing a presentation at work titled: The Manual of the Lazy Knowledge worker. Tips and tricks to be more productive while doing less work.

One of the tips is: "The most productive work is the one you don't have to do". Using a CMS someone already did the work for you.
