Drupal

Web content management system (WCMS) frameworks such as Drupal enable us to build custom website solutions based on a solid framework. This means that we can develop rich website solutions rapidly without our clients having to pay for us to reinvent the wheel.  WCMS solutions also provide the client with full editorial control over the implemented website freeing them from being tied to a proprietary solution.

Drupal is the leading enterprise-level platform for organizational Social Publishing sites, providing advanced WCMS and social capabilities. Plus, Drupal itself demonstrates the value of social community software: it is open source software written by a large, global community of developers who are constantly improving and extending it, assuring that it is your best choice for Social Publishing - Acquia.com – Building Enterprise Social Communities with Drupal

From simple blogs to rich social publishing and e-commerce sites, Drupal is a powerful framework that provides extensive opportunities for web development. Our experience with these systems enables us to provide open and transparent solutions that are highly visible to search engines and integrate readily with Social Marketing systems

WCMS such as Drupal provide a framework for a web site with publishing of content, user registration and authentication built in to the core. In addition they are highly extensible with a rich variety of additional facilities freely available as modular extensions that enable you to extend the functionality of your site almost without limit and at any stage in the development of your site.

Drupal is an open source and free system that has a large global user and developer base. As a result it is robust and continually improving in terms of its security, performance and facilities available to extend its core functionality. 

The community that your organization serves wants to interact - with each other, and with you. Your organization can nurture and grow with this community if you can provide the infrastructure. Two things need to be combined in this infrastructure: a WCMS with Web 2.0 capabilities, like blogs, tagging, etc., plus the social features users are accustomed to, such as social groups, project spaces, and status activity postings. Drupal combines all these capabilities into a single, free package. It accomplishes this through the power of open source, which provides speedy technical advancement from the community with the no-cost licensing model of free software – Acquia.com – Building Enterprise Social Communities with Drupal

It is the WCMS of choice for your project as it enables a high degree of extensibility to match the specific information system requirements of a project that aims to provide a range of data and information to a wide and varied audience with a structured set of roles and permissions. The extensible architecture enables us to review 3rd party extension or develop new ones if required to ensure that you have the facilities that best suit your requirements. Either way you get full unfettered access to the source code to enable you to use any solution provider to extend your site. Using Drupal significantly reduces the time to build a site and the ongoing maintenance cost. In addition it provides a code base that is maintained outside of a specific supplier and therefore you are not tied to the implementing agency for further development or maintenance. In this regard Drupal provides exceptional value for money.
