A content management system (CMS) is a foundational part of your digital experience. As the digital landscape continues to extend to more channels and touchpoints, a CMS must offer flexibility, powerful content creation tools and efficient workflows to power the content for customer journeys. Drupal is the CMS of choice for over a million websites around the globe and continues to be a leader when it comes to delivering ambitious digital experiences.
If you’re looking to transform your organization’s approach to digital with a CMS that can meet demand at every size and scale, it’s time to consider Drupal. See why we believe Drupal has the advantage over every CMS on the market today.
Drupal’s open source model encourages continuous improvement and innovation through the support and passion of the Drupal community. Today, there are over 1.4 million Drupal users in 230 countriesthat are committed to seeing Drupal succeed. With a pool of such diverse experts regularly working to make Drupal better, the possibility to create exceptional digital experiences expands far beyond what a single team of proprietary software developers could dream up.
For every new Drupal release, individuals and organizations around the globe contribute their time and resources to reviewing code, creating documentation, testing and incorporating feedback directly from the users themselves to deliver the best experience possible.

2. User Experience
The modern Drupal is a digital experience platform that developers and marketers alike can leverage to create unforgettable customer experiences. Recent versions of Drupal have prioritized user experience (UX) to empower everyone from site editors to content creators to build powerful customer experiences. Some enhancements to Drupal’s user interface include:
- Layout Builder - offering content authors an easy-to-use page building experience that lets editors control the appearance of their content without having to rely on a developer.
- The Claro administrative theme - providing a cleaner, easier-to-use interface for site administration, configuration and authoring.
- Mobile responsive web features - delivering mobile responsive themes, responsive images and mobile administration out of the box.
Organizations looking for the simplest and fastest path to design and launch their sites can also leverage the capabilities of Acquia Cohesion, a low-code site builder tool with a dynamic UI that makes it easier than ever for non-developers to shape experiences on the front end. Cohesion’s reusable components can be used to apply new features across all of their different digital properties in a single action. Recently, a major consumer-health pharmaceutical used the combined power of Cohesion and Acquia Cloud Site Factory to relaunch over 1,500 websites in multiple languages to a single digital platform in less than a year!
Drupal is a powerful and future-ready CMS that gives brands the freedom to scale with their needs. Drupal’s flexible API architecture supports exponential content growth across a global multisite ecosystem. Drupal is optimized for a number of caching modules that support faster page loading, optimized bandwidth and an overall more robust web performance even in high-pressure circumstances. Last year, when the Drupal-powered Justice.gov website released Special Counsel Robert Mueller's long-awaited report on Russian interference in the U.S. election, the site experienced a 7,000% increase in traffic. Thankfully, the site experienced no interruptions or availability issues. Choosing Drupal lets web teams feel confident that their sites can handle even the highest traffic spikes — even when the whole world is watching.
