First let’s explain a little about Drupal 8 and what a CMS Platform is.

Drupal 8

Put simply, Drupal 8 is the latest version of Drupal content management software.

Drupal is used to create many of the websites and applications used every day. Drupal is also a piece of open source software with one of the largest open source communities. With a community of over 1 million strong there is a large amount of support and shared networking opportunities allowing you to create a versatile and dynamic web experience.

CMS Platforms (Content Management Systems)

There are several CMS Platforms, Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla being some examples. A CMS Platform is software that allows the creation and management of digital content for websites and webpages. This content can include text, graphics, audio, video, photos, maps, and program code.  

Drupal Vs. WordPress

While WordPress might be the worlds most used and popular content management system, it doesn’t necessarily mean it is the best, especially if your website build is complex.

Drupal when compared to WordPress is a far more robust and complex and is one of the most powerful open source CMS available.

Offering extensive features and unlimited customization Drupal is perfect for websites that require multiple admin logins and permissions, multiple user contributions, logins, and permissions, mobile development features, enhanced security, and SEO.   

WordPress’ ability to handle really large volumes of content can create a slower experience. Drupal can handle a website that has thousands of pages and thousands of users simultaneously reading those pages without creating a slower experience.

In addition to this, Drupal’s security is far superior. WordPress has many plugins that have vulnerabilities and can be hacked. Drupal has advanced and enterprise-level security which is why it is used by many government websites, including the White House.
