What is Drupal?

Easy, Open-Source & Powerful Content Management System for Websites

Drupal is the leading free open-source Content Management System (CMS), and is used to create beautiful digital experiences that reach your audience across multiple channels and platforms. More simply put, Drupal is a tool used to create and manage websites using an intuitive user interface, and it's packed with features to help you achieve that goal. 

From complex global enterprise websites to simple brochure sites, Drupal 8 is a powerful, yet easy-to-use CMS with a well-designed authoring environment that includes page layout capabilities. 

We've found Drupal 8 extremely easy to use, and we've created a demo site that you can test drive for yourself

Drupal 8 was released over three years ago with over 200 new features (and many more since). The new features offer benefits to all your website stakeholders. It provides a significantly better authoring environment, is much quicker to set up, and provides nice improvements for site builders and developers. These improvements equate to a better visitor user experience.

Do any of the following easily with Drupal 8:

  1. Change a Page Layout
  2. Manage content creation with an agile-like workflow on the production site
  3. Easily translate pages and other assets (including the Drupal authoring environment) into other languages
  4. Use the built-in media ecosystem to manage and use your media assets
  5. Add/edit content using the beautiful new authoring environment
  6. Interact with countless applications using the REST-first native web services
  7. Create mobile-first pages to improve your mobile page ranks
  8. Use progressive front/backend decoupling to break free from typical backend restrictions without sacrificing security or accessibility.
  9. Render pages much faster with improved caching, CDN integration, and reverse proxies.
