The time and money invested into this platform were too great to discontinue it at this point. I'm sure it will be in use for a while. We have also spent time training many employees how to use it. All of these things add up to quite an investment in the product. Lastly, it basically fulfills what we need our intranet site to do.

Drupalize it!

We are going to continue to utilize Drupal for years to come. Drupal is continually being made to be more user friendly and continues to lead the open source community with support and an ever-growing user base. It seems that every time a major release is finalized the community has already started to work on the next. To me, this shows the commitment to creating the best platform on the market and not being satisfied with mediocrity.

I have not found a better solution to common CMS goals than Drupal. Not only am I actively pressuring a drive to use Drupal more (and WordPress less), I would likely look for another position if our use of Drupal were not to increase. Having long overcome the initial learning curve, this is an incredibly cost-effective method to develop websites necessary to accomplish a variety of business goals.

Drupal will continue to evolve and adapt as technology does so. I'm confident that it will continue to meet real needs for real businesses. Although it's possible that solutions will be provided for specific needs, Drupal will always have the advantage of being able to evolve, adapt, and customize to meet new needs.

Drupal continues to innovate on the content management front in that they are pursuing default mobile theming in the next iteration as well as continuing the complete customization. There are some things that they are adding to the default code base which I may not like or agree with, but overall, it continues to be a steady product with a steady stream of users and developers.

I really like Drupal, and besides the one major issue with not being able to update from version 6 to version 7 and I am happy to continuing using it. Hopefully as time goes on they will make it easier to upgrade or provide better tools for mid-level web designers like myself to build out new sites without the help of expensive 3rd party's.

Drupal 8 will be released this year and it will be the best content management framework ever. It includes libraries and components, like Guzzle and Twig, that are widely used and maintained by Symfony community. This collaboration between OpenSource communities is what makes products like Drupal a big piece of software.
