Why use Drupal?

With so many options available, picking the right content management system for your needs can be tough. Everyone in your business will be touched by the CMS to which you commit. That’s why in this article we’re keeping it simple and explaining why Drupal is a sometimes a better choice when compared to Wordpress, Joomla, Django and other content management systems. The basic advantages of Drupal include development speed, security and flexibility, and these advantages are the reason why Drupal is used to manage the content of so many well-known websites, from Weather.com to Verizon to the team pages of the NBA.

 

Advantages of Drupal

The advantages of Drupal below combine to form a superior package because they build upon one another. Flexibility without speed or security, and vice versa, isn’t very valuable, but Drupal is well-rounded.

 

● Flexibility: With Drupal you don’t have to worry that, as the needs of your website change, the CMS you use will have to change as well. That’s because Drupal is flexible enough to handle any demands placed upon it. Just a few of these demands include assigning users the ability to complete only specific tasks, add an ecommerce system, create a blog or forum, or dispense newsletters chock full of your site’s content. Extending Drupal is also easy without much code because of pre-packaged add-on modules.

 

● Development Speed: Developing and deploying features needs to be done quickly to take advantage of challenges and feedback facing your business. Drupal delivers by making it easy to customize your website content after its initial development. The level of customization is also notable, with design, layout, operation and features ready to be tweaked by developers.

 

● Security: Drupal is enterprise-class software, which means its security is highly advanced. Its security team works with the Drupal community to openly investigate, verify and publish any vulnerabilities, unlike proprietary projects. Open-source software such as Drupal is also as secure or even more secure than proprietary software.

 

Drupal v. Other Platforms

So, how does Drupal stand up against other options? Below we compare it to Wordpress, Joomla and Django. Ultimately your needs determine what CMS is right for your business. One of the biggest considerations for the typical business owner is ease of use, and the options below are ranked according to difficulty.

 

● Wordpress: The easiest CMS to use, Wordpress is best for those who don’t need complex websites and instead are satisfied with a wide selection of themes.


● Joomla: Harder to use than Wordpress, but easier than Drupal and certainly easier than Django, Joomla allows you or your developer to create notably complex websites. However, the level of complexity is not as advanced as Drupal. Joomla is intended to operate as a community platform particularly well-suited for social networking, while Drupal is primarily prized for its ability to categorize and organize complex content.

 

● Django: This CMS is powered by Python and is essentially more advanced, leaving more decisions up to the people who make or run the website when compared to Drupal. However, unlike Drupal, Django can not be learned with a reasonable time investment by a business owner; instead, its level of complexity requires the help of a professional developer.
