Adobe has a page listing the CMSs supported by FM out of the box, as
well as links to third-party connectors for CMS.

http://www.adobe.com/products/framemaker/cms-integration.html

Hope that helps.

I have no recommendation on a solution, because I've never had to move
from non-managed to managed content. They either had it or they didn't
when I came on board, and nothing changed before I left, nor were
there projects to do so in the companies that didn't have a CMS in
place.

My company has very basic SharePoint, which by itself is not workable for complex documents that involve dozens or hundreds of graphics file, each of which would have to be signed out individually. We are looking at SharePoint front ends that might work.
