Drupal CMS for Global Enterprises
Global content management can feel like a juggling act. It requires around the clock management of several content types, in any number of languages, all while keeping that content secure, accurate and up to date.

Enterprises today need an agile, scalable system that is capable of efficiently managing dynamic, multilingual content. Not every content management system (CMS) is able to meet the demands of global businesses.

That’s why international enterprises prefer Drupal.

Drupal is a PHP-based, open source content management system. It is one of the world’s most popular CMS platforms for managing large-scale digital experiences in a number of industries, including healthcare, higher education, government, media, and publishing.

Drupal is ideal for global enterprises because of its reliability, scalability, customization, security and world-ready multilingual capability.

Reliability

Introduced in 2001, Drupal is the most mature and reliable CMS on the market. Global enterprises and large government sites can’t afford to have their sites crash as the result of increased site traffic or volume. With frequent updates, the Drupal platform is being enhanced to continually meet the growing list of enterprise needs. Large businesses are only willing to invest in technology with a reliable roadmap that can adapt to their needs for years to come.

Scalability

Scalability and speed are critical for enterprises that want the ability to quickly create multilingual websites when entering new global markets.  Drupal offers both scalability and speed. When compared to WordPress, Drupal ranks as extremely scalable. The system is built for speed and produces some of the fastest loading websites.

Customizable

Drupal offers a wide variety of stable modules that can quickly deploy any feature. There are over 16,000 add-on modules for Drupal, making it a modular and extremely extensible platform with unmatched flexibility. It is configurable and provides solutions for virtually every type of content, and seamlessly integrates with existing data repositories and internal publishing tools.

Security

A recent comparison of the top CMS platforms found that “security is one of Drupal’s strong suits and the CMS is very safe out of the box.” Industry research shows that Drupal has one of the lowest vulnerability percentages (2%) with fewer infected websites when compared to the most popular CMS platforms. The official Drupal website notifies users of any vulnerabilities and has several extensions to make your site more secure, including a module dedicated to creating security reports.

 

World-Ready Multilingual Capability

The ability to translate content is part of Drupal core. Unlike other CMS solutions, you don’t have to install extensions to create multilingual content. Drupal is world-ready with integrated, multilingual capability that allows you to upload files, have them translated and download them back into your system without ever leaving the Drupal environment.

The ability to quickly deliver localized content makes Drupal the best choice for enterprises that need to enter new markets quickly, to increase global sales and market share, ahead of the competition.
