DRUPAL

Drupal is one of the most widely utilized Content Management Systems (CMS) globally, underpinning over 500,000 websites.

In essence, Drupal is a remarkably scalable, customizable, robustly secure, and cost-efficient Content Management System (CMS) designed to empower everything from modest blogs to colossal web portals.

FOR CONTENT CREATORS

Drupal delivers an outstanding experience through its Layout Builder, Views system for content listing and filtering, intricate Content Workflows, and a comprehensive Roles & Permissions system that manages access to various site features. It’s not just about functionality, it's about fostering creativity and content control.

FOR SITE BUILDERS

Drupal offers a staggering selection of over 40,000 modules, each providing a unique functionality that can effortlessly be integrated into your site. It’s not just about site building, but about crafting an experience, a digital ecosystem that responds to your unique needs.

The Power of The Open Source

Since its inception in 2001, Drupal has quickly grown into one of the largest open-source communities in the world. This community forms the backbone of Drupal’s competitive advantage, setting it apart from proprietary solutions:

The Power of The Open Source - Security

Security

As an open-source platform, hiding malicious code is virtually impossible. The Security Team ensures regular updates to the core and modules, constantly enhancing their security. As a result, a mere 0.6% of all infected websites in 2022 were Drupal sites.

OWNERSHIP COST

Ownership Cost

Being open-source, the cost of software ownership and maintenance is distributed among tens of thousands of contributors. Individuals generously dedicate their time to provide patches and updates to the core and individual modules daily.

Section 508 compliant

Community Support

If you encounter difficulties during Drupal development, you are never alone. The chances that another community member has already resolved your issue and shared the solution are high. Similarly, any fix made on your end can be sent back to the community - again, reaping the benefits of shared ownership costs.

Rapid Innovation

Rapid Innovation

Open-source platforms foster innovation. The sheer number of brilliant minds working with the software continually refine and improve it, often inventing revolutionary approaches. Among the open-source community, you'll find some of the brightest engineers of our generation, who are constantly finding better mousetraps.

Developer Unity

Developer Unity

Beyond commercial development, over 10,000 individuals contribute to the Drupal Project daily - by providing fixes and updates, designing and implementing new features, and enhancing their security. Since Drupal 9, over 4,000 changes were committed to Drupal Core alone. These contributions came from 2,129 different people and 616 unique organizations over the last 2.5 years - and that’s just for Drupal Core!

We’ve experienced Drupal’s power firsthand. Our contributions span over 70 projects, hundreds of modules, and thousands of hours of work that we’ve shared back with the open-source community. We’ve attended numerous Code Sprints, co-organized and participated in DrupalCamps and Drupal Cafes, and visited, participated in, and loved dozens of DrupalCons.

Industries choose Drupal

23.8%

of universities worldwide chose Drupal to power their Web presence out of over 100 CMSes.

56%

of government websites, including the White House and NASA, are built on Drupal.

20%

of non-profit organizations choose Drupal for their websites.

CMF, not just CMS

An important yet often overlooked fact about Drupal that’s worth mentioning is its initial intention was to be a Content Management Framework. This means that at its heart, Drupal isn’t just coding that performs a single function. Rather, it’s an elegantly designed collection of subsystems and internal APIs that work in harmony to enable the construction of superior digital experiences. In layman's terms, it serves as a toolbox full of wrenches, nuts, and bolts designed to help you build potent websites, expand your business, and do it cost-effectively.
