Why and When to use Drupal
Drupal is an open source CMS that is exceptionally powerful and versatile. Drupal offers all of the content management functions you’d get with other systems but can also be expanded upon using thousands of modules. These modules can add a wide variety of features including the creation of portals and online communities. Drupal can also be used as a framework to develop custom web applications upon.
Drupal is ideal for medium to large-sized websites that may grow over time or require custom applications. Drupal is a powerful platform with modules that support forums, social media, blogging, event calendars, E-commerce and several other online functions.
