Largest Open Source Community and contributors on the planet.

With over a million people behind, critical mass adoption is an understatement. Over 2x the size of the Linux developer community, we are vibrant local and international community with a public road-map and a public issue tracker. Even DrupalWxT has its own Issue Queue (with over 1200 resolved issues, and no active pending) on Github.


Extendable with anything

Without "for profit" decision-making, Drupal is organically transparent and has vested interest to work with others, so it does. It supports Web Services integration and even CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Service) to integrate seamlessly with other Repositories.


User Engagement Ready

Leave static pages in the dust and be ready for the user engagement features that help reduce GoC call center loads. Out-of-the-box features include Chat, Commenting/Discussions, Content ratings, Blogs, Follow content, Social Sharing and much more.

Feature ready

Feature Server ready

Drupal incorporates a "Features" distribution and App delivery service to help control versioned distributions and enhance sites (similar to your iPhone Apps). Add a DrupalWxT GoC approved Blog, and other controlled features easily.


Transportable, Versatile & Innovation

There is no licensing with Drupal, making it agile and easy to evolve and transform.  You always share the intellectual property, allowing you to harness and motivate developers to be more collaborative and innovative.  This allows even large public enterprises (yes, even Governments!) to be able to react quickly to changes and to embrace a more agile methodology.


Extensive GoC testing.

There has been extensive GoC testing including automated continuous integration which includes Selenium Unity scripted cross-browser and multi-device testing.
