Drupal has become one of the widest known and used content management systems on the planet. With a dedicated security team and thousands of Open Source modules it's a great choice for many web projects.
What is Drupal?
Drupal is a Content Management System (CMS), that at its simplest level provides a CMS application that allows for scalable, editable and user friendly add-ons that are constantly being updated to ensure the CMS is always at the forefront of technology.
Drupal is open source, so the platform is created, and updated by, an international community of developers that deliver code at the forefront of technology. This also means no-one is tied into any restrictive proprietary based contracts - a win-win for all we say!
We use it to create feature-packed websites that are simple to use and tell the unique story of each organisation with whom we work.
Drupal in comparison to Other Open Source CMS Applications
There are primarily 3 open source CMS Applications available in the market - Drupal, WordPress and Joomla!. Each one differs in their application, relevance, feature add ons, support and suitability for different targets.
WordPress is often the developers preference for Blog Sites, as it was designed specifically for this purpose. It has a simple page layout with limited customisation and an information architecture system designed for creating new links as new pages are created.
Joomla! offers simple content orientated site development. The coding concepts are at a different level than Drupal and, in our experience, we believe just don’t offer the same level of flexibility and adaptability.
In comparison, Drupal offers infinite possibilities in terms of different page layouts, information architecture, add-on tools, mapping and multi-lingual tools and workflow or content management roles. It is developed by a collaborative community and offers extensive support.
