An ode to the Drupal Content Management System

If you haven’t heard yet, here at Acro Media, our website content management system (CMS) of choice is the open-source Drupal. We choose Drupal for various reasons. We will explain this decision in an attempt to provide you (our clients, brand advocates, and friends) transparency in our thought process.

Drupal Content Management System History

For a professional solutions web development company, Drupal has many attractive features. The following points describe why we think Drupal is great!

Drupal is a mature system.

New call-to-action

It has been around for a while, like two decades. If you look into the history of Drupal, it keeps some impressive companies, such as Turner Broadcasting, British Medical Journal, The Grammy’s and The White House. The big guys, you know what I am saying?

Drupal has a foundation built to scale

We haven’t found anything it can’t handle. Did we mention we work with Telus Mobility and Yellow Pages?

Drupal is constantly improving.

As an open-source project, Drupal has a large community of over 500,000 developers continuously looking at ways to improve the product. The upgrades and features accompanying new versions of the framework reflect this desire to stay top of the class.

We are excited about the future of Drupal.

Drupal 8 will feature updates such as the support of HTML5, a language that represents an exciting evolution of the Drupal platform. Future versions will offer added benefits and functions to the end-user. Mobile updates include making all of drupal 8’s core themes responsive and improving front-end performance. Another exciting upgrade is the multilingual features that enhance the content translation system.
