Benefits of Drupal 9 Systems, Themes & Plugins
Drupal is one of the world’s largest open source projects. Drupal’s community continues to grow each year and now numbers over 1 million members, providing organizations with an ever-growing set of contributed functionality. Because the Drupal community is global, obtaining Drupal expertise and assistance is simple. Because Drupal 8 is object-oriented and built on Symfony components using PHP libraries, it further broadens the developer pool to include any PHP developer, removing the need for a Drupal-specific developer.
Security is a critical benefit of Drupal 8. Many organizations have been slow to adopt open-source software due to security concerns. Drupal helps alleviate this fear by including numerous security features and providing guidance to the community on how to protect sites. Additionally, Drupal 8 incorporates security best practices into the way code is written, generated PHP files are generated, and site builder configuration is configured. Additionally, Drupal has a security team in place. If a vulnerability is discovered, patches can be quickly released. Stable modules that have undergone a security review are also distinguished by a shield icon. Additionally, Acquia Lightning is subjected to additional security checks by Acquia’s security team.
Drupal includes built-in workflow management that can be configured with different workflow states and access permissions to enable organizations to adhere to proper review and approval cycles prior to publishing content. Drupal is constantly improving its workflow capabilities and is actively working on several content initiatives for Drupal core.
Drupal’s flexible content architecture enables the creation of reusable, structured content that can be displayed in a variety of view modes. Content creators have a plethora of toolkits at their disposal. Developers can access this data model by utilizing Drupal’s built-in tools, importing data from external sources, or even utilizing an external data store.
Drupal 8 includes built-in configuration management, allowing development teams to push and sync changes across environments. This feature alone distinguishes Drupal 8 from other open-source content management systems.
