With your content decoupled from delivery, you’re in control of exactly how it looks and performs, and can optimise its presentation to suit a wide range of different platforms, channels and devices. This also gives front-end developers more freedom in the way they build sites and apps - allowing them to use libraries and frameworks such as AngularJS and React to craft the perfect experience, quickly.
A mature CMS designed with robust security in mind, you can trust in Drupal to handle even the most mission-critical of your sites and applications.
A dedicated security team constantly monitors for and responds to potential threats - regularly releasing bug fixes and security updates to the core CMS to help reduce on-going maintenance and support costs - while the vast global development community ensures that all code meets stringent quality standards to further minimise the risk of vulnerabilities.
Drupal’s focus on modularity provides you with the functionality you need, in the combination you need it. With thousands of different modules available to enhance and extend the system’s core functionality, the only real limit to what your digital experience can be is your own imagination.
You don’t just have to rely on Drupal modules to create your digital solution. The CMS can be extended still further through integration with external services and other applications in your ecosystem, such as customer relationship management, enterprise resource planning, and other critical line-of-business systems - opening up a world of opportunity and ensuring seamless assimilation with your existing infrastructure.
The open source nature of Drupal also means that there are no licence and royalty fees to be paid, helping reduce the costs associated with your development environment - and enabling you to direct your budget towards adding greater value for your users and your business.
When it comes to websites and applications, Drupal is used to doing heavy lifting - supporting large enterprises including GE and Pfizer, along with sites that experience extreme traffic bursts such as the GRAMMY Awards and NBC Olympics. So whatever your plans for the future, you can be confident that the CMS will support them every step of the way.
As an open-source platform Drupal benefits from one of the largest developer communities in the world.
The collaborative and cooperative nature of the Drupal ecosystem means that all of the features mentioned above are constantly being improved and extended, with more features added every six months as part of a scheduled release cycle - encouraging on-going innovation and safeguarding quality at every level.
Drupal’s intuitive tools for content editors and administrators mean that you can focus on the experience you deliver, not the process of creating it.
Configurable permissions and workflows make it easy to manage content publication without compromising on quality, while sophisticated tagging and taxonomy capabilities allow you to classify your content according to a range of attributes, so that it can be easily found and used by your audience.
