Drupal is an enterprise-grade, open source content management system (CMS) that’s highly maintained and secure, with over a million community contributors globally and strong worldwide adoption. It’s also won several international open source CMS awards and is the CMS of choice backed by the Australian Federal Government via the GovCMS offering.

Our commitment to Drupal is part of our commitment to all things open source — open CMSopen dataopen platform and open design. It’s also an integral part of our involvement in the open government movement and our focus on helping governments and enterprises become more open, more connected and more consolidated to create better citizen experiences.

Open source technologies such as Drupal deliver many benefits, including:

  • Reduced costs
  • Global and active communities, global and active adoption
  • Minimised vendor lock-in, and the unfortunately too common ‘$ proprietary liability’
  • Reduced risks (code has already been tested and used)
  • Collaboration and knowledge sharing
