Overall Satisfaction with Drupal

Open source CMS use by our content team for collaboration and to share files. As the content team is scattered across three different geographies, Drupal allows us to communicate and collaborate quickly and easily through an intranet site. We find it ideal to edit collateral among several collaborators. The allocation of roles to each user allows a quick review cycle while lessening the chance of errors.
  • Easy to use, especially compared to other open source CMS.
  • Robust user community to address issues and to provide advice.
  • Steep learning curve (but easy to use once you learn the system).
  • Poorly written or unsupported plug-ins can be a security liability.
  • Higher content developer productivity.
We were looking for an open source CMS. WordPress wasn't powerful enough for our needs. Joomla was too difficult for our team to use.
Our experience with Drupal is for in-house websites ranging from relatively simple blogs to enterprise-level collaboration sites. In our case, we use it to develop content among an internal audience. I'd recommend it for any team that has a technical bent or has developer support (we have both). Drupal can power any number of websites, from extremely complicated to simple portfolios.
