Choosing the right content management system is one of the key challenges faced by a web development company working on content-rich web applications. Content, in fact, plays a crucial role in getting such websites noticed – both by search engines and internet users. Using Drupal CMS to create and manage web applications that thrive on content, definitely works in favour of the web development company because it proves advantageous in several ways. Let’s take a look at 5 salient benefits:
The rate at which digital content is consumed makes it necessary for businesses to create volumes of relevant fresh content to stay in the race. Drupal, being capable of effortlessly scaling up to accommodate growing traffic, content updates and consumption, ensures that your website continues to offer a great user-experience, irrespective of the increasing resource requirements.
Easy Authoring and publication of Content
The different tools in Drupal make it possible to create, review, track revisions, tag and publish content without wasting undue time or effort in the process. Features such as In-place authoring, mobile review, and workflow managements make sure that your team can churn out quality content on schedule.
Support for Diverse Content Types
Drupal allows for flexible use of a wide array of content types ranging from texts and blogs to images, videos, polls and podcasts to creatively structure a website that best meets requirements, and also monitor real-time statistics if needed. Your developers can simply use the graphic interface to achieve the desired layout and effects and manage revisions effectively.
Multi-language support and localization
Communicating with users in their native language is essential to get the message across in the right manner, understand and address user concerns and requests if any. Businesses spend a lot of money, time and effort on localization and translation to host sites in different languages. Drupal supports full translation of every part of the website such as the content, configuration and even the interface, to quickly churn out regional websites (in local languages and settings) saving a lot of precious resources in the process. Your developers too are free to set an interface language of their choice while working on Drupal!
Drupal strives to separate content from presentation, storing content as reusable units that can be used whenever, wherever and however needed. It thus facilitates free flow of content across devices, websites and applications making it possible for your developers to better focus on the enhancing user experience, and also redesign presentation elements without any constraints. It is also possible to feature third-party content on your website as well!
There are several other features of Drupal that make application development and content management a breeze for any web development company in India. While Security often proves to be a key concern in using Open Source Software, Drupal has stood the test of time and continues to address issues in a prompt manner.
