- Tech Details
Drupal is a free and open source content management system written in PHP that competes primarily with Joomla and Plone. The standard release of Drupal, known as Drupal core, contains basic features common to content management systems. These include a dashboard with a menu management system, RSS feeds, page layout customization and themes to aid this, and system administration tools. Drupal offers access statistics, more advanced search features, caching and feature throttling (to improve performance if needed), descriptive URLs, multiple users with controllable privileges, access control and restrictions, and workflow tools (triggers). There are over 30,000 addons or modules to expand Drupal's functionality.
- Given the endless possibilities that Drupal can have, we tend to have great support going on when we get a website launched
- It has become much much faster and easier for us to launch a new project due to reusability
- Configuration management in Drupal helps greatly with CI/CD, saves us costs
- It consists of all of the features wished for an E-commerce website.
- Drupal brought to my team the possibility to build more robust applications and websites
- Drupal allows good integration with other applications, which is beneficial in reducing application costs
- A negative impact was that the learning curve was longer than expected
- Far better web site time to market
- Better UX/UI
- Reduced IT costs
- Free but, requires a lot to set up before it can be used
- Themes, API's and Plugins allow for virtually any use and many distributions supported

- Faster website optimization
- Quick turn around time and shorter go-to-market times.
- Huge Drupal community - Never short of feedback and ideas on problems and their solutions.

- Positive. We love working on Drupal websites.
- Positive - I've used Drupal for hundreds of client projects. Drupal is open source, so there is no overhead to using it.
- Positive - Since all my sites are on the same platform, managing client websites is easy. I know how every site is built, and don't have to remember custom things for each one.
- Negative - Some clients are DIYers, so teaching them how to log into Drupal's admin area and create or edit web pages can be challenging. It's not that Drupal itself makes it challenging, though it might be easier for a client to make their own webpage or blog post in a WordPress site. But clients don't compare the Drupal experience to WordPress. They compare it to writing an article in MS Word. Or they get flustered when they copy and paste text into Drupal, and unknowingly copy over all of Word's backend code as well.
- Positive - I've been able to take on some very simple projects, and some extremely complicated projects - and I can use the same Drupal starting point regardless. That saves a tremendous amount of time as each setup can be identical and automated.
- Drupal has allowed us to build our new website at a relatively quick pace. It's definitely been quicker than if we had to build a new custom CMS.
- It's allowed our team of developers and designers to all work together simultaneously on building the new site.
- Our new website is much improved, and will allow us to better serve our citizens.
- Provides companies with a simple and fast professional way to build their websites.
- It allows us to gain time using Drupal and in turn results in savings that were invested in development.
- It has given us a trusted platform to build our site out. Primarily with the updates that Drupal has - security is never an issue
- Finding a developer that is fluent in Drupal is easy to find - very popular platform.
- We have been able to engage clients positively and generate business.
- Drupal is open source, so no cost required.
- Excellent web design and support center
- Easy to use API integrations
- Leveraging multiple platforms through Drupal
- The client was very happy with the website, and with the work we put into bringing it to life. I hope that it's had a positive impact on their core business, but this isn't something I have visibility into.
- In a positive sense, I can develop sites using Drupal for non-profit organizations that may not afford me to keep their sites up to date, so they can now do it themselves. This is just as applicable to any type of organization for that matter.
- The negative impact this has had has been that of being called on when the client becomes confused with accessing their account. If I charge for this small favor, I received a negative review, if I do not charge, then I receive calls, seemingly forever.
- All in all, the ROI is positive. Drupal is worth the time and effort to learn and offer.
- Drupal has allowed us to build up a library of code and base sites we can reuse to save time which has increased our efficiency and thus had a positive financial impact.
- Drupal has allowed us to take on projects we otherwise would not have been able to, having a further impact.
- Drupal has allowed us to build great solutions for our clients which give them an excellent ROI.
- I've managed content in Drupal, and this content is viewed by thousands of instructors, preventing the need for them to contact our helpline for assistance. This frees up time for my staff to deal with actual issues, rather than training issues, and is a major positive ROI use case for using Drupal.
- We provide alerts regarding service outages, hopefully preventing users from calling into our helpline - and allowing the real issues to have a higher volume than issues we are aware of.
- Makes updating our company website easier.
- The time we have spent in setup has been gained back in easy content addition.
- Drupal updates can be lengthy and problematic. When you can update 5 WordPress sites in the time it takes to update 1 Drupal site, you have to be sure you have implemented the right solution.

- High degree of customization.
- Integration with other tools.
- helped create a robust intranet across the organization
- share success stories from various departments in form of intranet news feed so departments know what each other are doing
- create HR document repository for people to access when needed
- Free to use and much easier than creating custom applications
- Highly customizable, so it can handle most any application
- Spend a lot of time looking for solutions
- Our overall site traffic has grown exponentially since we have moved to it.
- We have been able to bring a standardized format to all of our resources and communications.
- Promoting new products is much easier due to the easy to use interface of Drupal, we can get a new product launch page up in record time compared to our old platform.
