Warner adopts open source Drupal platform for artist websites
Warner Music Group has signed up to use a new open source platform for its artist websites.
Acquia’s ‘Enterprise Drupal Gardens’ has been created to allow firms to centrally create and manage large numbers of content-rich, social websites.
The platform, dubbed ‘OpenSaas’, allows clients to access and build their websites through a common web browser – without being ‘locked in’ to a proprietary ‘software as a service’ (SaaS) model.
A wide range of artists websites are already on the platform, including Cody Simpson, T.I., B.o.B, Portugal. The Man, Stevie Nicks, Iron & Wine, Surfer Blood, JaneDear girls and Gloriana.
