Drupal: King of the Open-Source CMS Options

Unveiling the Power of Drupal: The Open-Source CMS Option

When the seeds of Drupal began in the late 1990s, no one (not even its creator) envisioned it as a CMS. In fact, it began as message board software in Europe.

The Evolution into a Powerhouse CMS

Since becoming an open-source project, however, it gradually has become a platform for (ahem) sophisticated tastes. That is to say, WordPress and Joomla both have large communities, but Drupal has supporters that develop on the highest level.

Complexity That Yields Powerful Functionality

Not only is Drupal powerful, it's also slightly more complex to implement and use. The trade-off allows for powerful functionality, however, and it lends itself exceptionally well to complex websites that require more than the usual out-of-the-box possibilities.

Security at Its Core

Another reason clients appreciate Drupal development is its excellent security rating. Since web data can be sensitive (and no one likes backend problems), a great security rating is actually a really good reason to choose a platform.

Customization and Flexibility

And while some have been intimidated by Drupal's tech-head reputation, it actually responds great to customization, meaning that whatever is confusing or unnecessary can be hidden or modified into something more meaningful.

Limitless Possibilities

All in all, it's a fantastic platform where possibilities are virtually limitless without having to break the bank along the way.
