Overall Satisfaction with Drupal

Drupal is used as the content management system for our organization's intranet. The intranet has hundreds of pages as well as image and document storage capabilities. It also has a number of custom integrations built by the organization's information technology department that have been integrated into the Drupal system for use. Users across the organization access Drupal.
  • It has a document repository that makes it easy to store necessary documents
  • It has an image repository where users can store images
  • it has the ability to have many users across the organization
  • it can be a bit buggy at times
  • it's not the most intuitive user experience
  • while it's nice there is a photo repository, the folder structure could be formatted a bit better
  • 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
When selected, Drupal was the tool that had enough power to create a robust intranet while not being too overly complicated. It allowed for custom integrations that were developed from IT, and it was able to handle the mass amount of users we needed, many of whom are not overly tech savvy or familiar with using a CMS.
Content Author / Administrator
Drupal is a good basic CMS for people who are looking to have more advanced features that a CMS like WordPress but aren't looking for an enterprise level CMS. In my experience, Drupal has worked great for small or mid-sized companies, non profits, etc. The recently released Drupal 8, which I have not yet used, looks to be a big improvement in user experience.
