What is Drupal…?


Drupal is a content management system. Drupal is a free software package that allows you to easily organize, manage and publish your content, with an endless variety of customization. Drupal is used to manage content on informational sites, social media sites, member sites, intranets and web applications.
Drupal, is a second generation CMS. It means that a lot of new or customized functionality can be created in the user interface without programming. Doing this doesn't take much time and can be done by a member of your staff versed in your operations. This lessens your dependency on service providers offers you the freedom to make simple adjustments and development yourself.
Drupal is Open- Drupal was created over ten years ago and released as open-source software under the GNU Public License. That means it’s completely free to download, use, and modify: There are no purchase, license, or maintenance fees.
Drupal is Social- Drupal is a multi-user system, letting site visitors log in (as “authenticated” users) or browse the site without doing so (as “anonymous” users). You control their access levels, and can also assign “roles” for multiple permission levels.

Drupal is Content- Drupal both hosts and promotes your content. It can reach out beyond your site to give you a presence on Twitter, Facebook, and in other venues. Drupal’s built-in features also give search engines what they want, improving your web impact automatically.

 

Drupal is Scalable- Drupal has proven itself repeatedly in the field on sites with over a million pages, and at over 20,000 requests per second. Its core installation handles over 99 percent of use cases, while free optimization tools and a large base of Drupal-trained administrators address the other one percent.

 

Drupal is Design- Drupal site designs come from “themes”, whose visual presentation is described in standard CSS. Drupal.org hosts hundreds of free, fully customizable themes, including several “base themes” to help you launch your own designs.

 

Drupal is Everywhere- Drupal runs millions of web sites, including many of the world’s biggest. It’s especially strong among major governments and industry-leading enterprises, but is easy enough to be the platform of choice for individuals and small companies.


Drupal is Secure- Drupal is used by thousands of high profile web sites and is subject to rigorous security testing both by the Drupal community and by security experts around the world. Drupal's core code has been proven to prevent common security vulnerabilities such as those defined by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).

 

 

 

Why should I pick Drupal?

There are four reasons why you should choose Drupal instead of other first generation content management systems. Using Drupal you can create solutions that:

 

·         Offer shorter time to market for new or improved features on your site.

 

·         Empower your staff to customize and further improve your website without relying on a Drupal service provide

 

·         Offer sustainable maintenance when many small changes happen that affect functionality as well as design

 

·         Lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) as a result of Drupal being free software, offering shorter development time, less dependence on service providers and lower maintenance costs.
