iDelft is implementing Drupal web-portals for clients like VRNHN, Peutz, Fresh and GemeenteMuseum Den Haag. Drupal is an Open Source Content Management System (CMS), developed in the programming language PHP and released under a public license. The system has initially been created by Dries Buytaert (Belgium native). The system has a long and successful history. The most recent version is Drupal 8. iDelft is frequently applying Drupal for customer's projects. The system is running both in a Linux and in a Windows environment with webservers like Apache or IIS. Drupal requires a database to store the contents and the settings. The database is often a MySQL or a PostgreSQL database. iDelft has experience with all these platforms as can be seen from our sample projects overview.
If you want a website with a few web pages then it is not necessary to apply a Content Management System. Drupal is our favorite option when:
- the website is growing in size
- multiple similar websites are required
- content must be adapted (on-line)
- security plays an important role
- various users and various roles exist
- various types of information exist
- agenda-, news-, twitter and RSS messages need to be published
- single sign-on is required
There are hundreds of free Drupal modules available ready to use. There are no paid licenses involved while using Drupal. This means that a Drupal project is relatively inexpensive. If necessary we can deliver the website turn-key including hosting and support activities. It is also possible to create a series of Drupal websites with our Standard Drupal Configuration (SDC) concept.
