Our Top Five Reasons to Choose Drupal
TEN7’s decision to become a Drupal-focused firm was simultaneously quite difficult and very easy. First, limiting your potential market by committing your dev team to one platform could be considered poor business judgement. However, the abundant reasons to do so far outweigh all others, and the numerous Drupal projects we are responsible for are solid proof. We consciously decided to become experts and not generalists as much as possible.
There are numerous good reasons why you should choose Drupal. Here are our top five:
Drupal 8 taps into the concentrated innovation from its open source community of over 1 million active developers, designers, trainers, strategists, coordinators, editors and sponsors working together to provide support, create documentation, share networking opportunities and more. We’re regularly involved in continuous theme development and security and application updates. This provides significant sustainability for Drupal websites well into the future. There's a much often heard refrain “Come for the code, stay for the community” – we firmly believe it to be true.
Drupal is globally coveted as one of the finest website frameworks available, and is rapidly becoming the most influential global open source community. With almost 1.2 million deployments and almost 36,000 contributed modules, serving the diverse needs from governments to major social media networks to small businesses on Main Street, Drupal has proved its immense value when it comes to creating and managing the best websites possible.
Nothing is more important than security when it comes to the efficacy of a successful website. Nothing. Successful attacks will shut a site down. The Drupal community strives to create secure code that meets industry standard best practices and organizes a dedicated security team charged with numerous goals, including resolving reported security issues. Drupal demands transparency and efficiency: we all communally benefit from each others' reporting.
Drupal 8 is without doubt the most accessible CMS available, integrating accessibility standards in the core code, while keeping accessibility costs low. No other CMS can make this claim. Content managers now have the right solution to ensure websites are WCAG 2.0 AA or AAA and AODA compliant, in step and keeping up with accessibility best practices.
Integration and Internationalization
Perhaps the most important thing that makes Drupal invaluable is how it seamless integrates within an existing web ecosystem. Integrating enterprise legacy systems is a key concern for customers considering leaving proprietary web systems to join the Drupal community. Drupal integrates with your organization's email, analytics, marketing automation and other digital tech solutions. Moreover, Drupal provides improved multilingual and globalization support which deliver great digital experiences. Drupal interface translations means Drupal speaks everyone's language.
Drupal has been around since 2000, and is the #1 platform for web content management among global enterprises, governments, higher education institutions and NGOs. Well over one million Drupal sites are currently proving their value every day.
We are thrilled when clients come to us and say, “We want to create something special.” Armed with Drupal, that’s exactly what we will do.
