Drupal – Your Flexible Enterprise CMS

Drupal 9 at a Glance

  • User friendly – Drupal provides editorial teams with an easy way to create, maintain and manage any kind of content.

  • Ready for complex requirements – Built-in functionality and modules and the underlying system architecture facilitate the implementation of complex requirements.

  • Versatile – Drupal covers the entire range of today’s CMS and web 2.0 requirements: from a simple microsite to an international corporate website with a community portal to a comprehensive online shop.

  • Secure – An intricate role and rights management system plus workflow configuration enable adaptation to individual publication processes. In addition, a dedicated security advisory board monitors the Drupal CMS, making sure it is always up to date.

  • Community – Drupal is one of the most successful open-source projects in the world. Its widespread use and professional developer community ensure ongoing development and additions.

Headless Architecture – Strong, Flexible Performance

Drupal has been successful in the market for more than 20 years now and is well known for the non-stop evolution of the platform and the continual growth of the active community. With major version 8 (2015), Drupal introduced an API-first approach. Decades of system growth and the decoupled options in the current Drupal version 9 make it an ideal basis for a wide range of web projects. It forms the core element of our architecture.

A headless architecture offers many advantages:

  • The focus on interfaces enables efficient integration of third-party systems and provision of data from Drupal.

  • Decoupling the backend and frontend provides added flexibility for new developments.

  • Depending on the target group and channel, information can be enriched and delivered in a targeted fashion.

  • The perfect interplay between architecture components lets you create an exceptional user experience: A well-composed technology stack combined with modern frontend technologies makes for fast loading times and optimised rendering on all devices.

A headless architecture based on Drupal means technical flexibility for you and an excellent experience for your customers on your website.
