We also don't have to worry about system updates and upgrading to new features as these happen automatically. Performance also excels on Adobe Business Catalyst compared to Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla. In all, Adobe Business Catalyst, with it's predefined functionality allows us to build powerful websites more efficiently then the competitors out there.

The Adobe Business Catalyst Community helps to educate developers and agencies by providing resources to better equip us with the tools and knowledge to build better websites on the system.
