The best solution for the content management struggle is a good balance of flexibility and simplicity. When a solution is too simple it is constrained to use for a single purpose, while overly flexible solutions can be too difficult to newcomers to use. Most content management systems (CMSs) involve a set of assumptions about how the CMS will be used. These assumptions can be really difficult to override. However, content management frameworks don’t function based on assumptions about how they’ll be utilized, so you need expert technical knowledge if you want to make anything with them. Whether site builders are looking to create online stores, social networks, blogs, news sites, wikis, or just about anything else, Drupal can help. It’s just about combining the right modules to build what you want. The possibilities are endless. Drupal was designed with these issues in mind. It aims to be the perfect content management solution provider for users who require both simplicity and flexibility, and who may be non-technical. Drupal manages to achieve this key aim by using a modular approach to site building.
Drupal is easily scalable and changeable, allowing developers to create what they need at the level they need it, unlike other CMSs which make assumptions about end-use. In this way, Drupal is essentially both a content management system and a content management framework. Put together, it’s a unified system which aims to integrate the strengths of both content management systems and a content management frameworks without their weaknesses.
