There are multiple advantages to using Drupal CMS over the competition.
Content management systems are utilised by businesses to provide an easier and more efficient workflow, greater functionality and increasing levels of interactivity. Presently, multiple content management systems abound on
the market – these include Joomla, WordPress and several others. The benefits of using the aforementioned content management systems (CMS) vary dramatically, based on the requirements at hand. Businesses, small or large, can do themselves a tremendous disservice by focusing their efforts exclusively on one content management system while neglecting the possibilities inherent in switching to another one. Of particular interest to companies in recent times is the Drupal CMS option. As the latest wunderkind in the CMS arena, Drupal beats the competition hands down. It provides a
wonderfully engaging and efficient means of managing content, with easy maintenance, and highly effective business tools.
Drupal is a content management system. It is an open source program – meaning that it is freely available to companies wanting to use it. Its strength lies not only in the fact that it's freely available, but that it offers a high degree of flexibility in terms of sharing, distributing and modifying all manner of content. Businesses will find it to be a highly functional tool for data, text and video content. Tech aficionados have labeled Drupal as a SaaS solution – ideal for enterprises of any size. Drupal software was recently voted as the InfoWorld 2011 top selection. No CMS system functions with optimal
precision, efficiency or effectiveness. However, Drupal comes a lot closer than others on all fronts. It is comprised of a dynamic community-style platform, which allows for constant enhancements, improvements and modifications to the open source material for the betterment of users everywhere. It is estimated that Drupal software is being updated around the clock – much like Wikipedia, Moodle and related freeware. The focus with regards to Drupal is on its functionality, not on the manner in which it is marketed to the public.
In addition to the aforementioned benefits, Drupal features prominently among small and large companies because it’s a powerful, low-cost, high-value solution to managing content. The absence of licence fees and vendor lock-in agreements is enticing to companies. Thousands of developers the world over form part and parcel of the Drupal community, meaning that there are always capable technical minds at the ready to assist with Drupal upgrades and enhancements. Users can enjoy optimal performance CMS, with built-in caching mechanisms, a high degree of integration with third party caching mechanisms and scalability to any size.
