Why Drupal?

Drupal is a powerful and adaptable open source software platform used by over 250,000 developers globally. It provides enhanced integration, customisation and faster development for all sorts of web projects from simple Blog sites, to online communities, e-commerce applications, intranet systems and much, much more.

Building a web application using an open source tool like Drupal can be compared to building your web application out of lego. With Drupal there are around 18,000 user contributed modules available, each of which can be easily plugged in and configured to add functionality to your website or application. The range and variety of modules available for Drupal gives developers total flexibility to build to an organisation's specific requirements.

The 'open' approach of Drupal and the large and active developer community mean you can be confident that you are building on a platform that will be able to adapt to and integrate with future technologies as they emerge and you won't be ever be tied to one supplier to maintain and develop your site.
