“Given a large enough beta-tester and co-developer base, almost every problem will be characterized quickly and the fix obvious to someone.”

Drupal has arrived. The enterprise level open-source content management system is powering an estimated 7.2 million sites as of July 2010. With well over 3,000 attendees from around the world at last month’s Drupal Conference in Chicago, Drupal is everywhere. For some, the question remains if Drupal is truly secure enough for enterprise. The U.S. Government believes Drupal is secure enough to run Whitehouse.gov and after our experiences, we fully concur that Drupal provides state of the art security.

Should users be able to customize their own interfaces and experiences? In a technology environment increasingly amenable to open collaboration, does “Open UX” have a place?

Meredith Casey and I of the NavigationArts Marketing team along with Pete Rose from the Business Development team attended the Web Content Mavens meeting at Il Mulino this past Tuesday night to discuss “Open Source CMS – Is it right for your Organization?”
We heard from Jeff Walpole of Phase II comparing and contrasting different Open Source CMS’s and on why he uses Drupal for so many of his projects, including WhiteHouse.gov. We heard from Mike Vertal of RivetLogic on Alfresco and why it works so well for some of his clients (enterprises mostly) but that it is not for everyone. And lastly we heard from Martin Ringlein of nclud on how the popularity of WordPress has positively influenced its SEO capabilities and simlified things such as application development.

The great Drupal switch came about after the Obama new media team, with a few months of executive branch service (and tweaking of WhiteHouse.gov) under their belts, decided they needed a more malleable development environment for the White House web presence. They wanted to be able to more quickly, easily, and gracefully build out their vision of interactive government.
More thoughts on the change and what it means in terms of technology and the public adoption of open-source software is available from Dries Buyatert (original creator and project lead for Drupal development) and Tim O’Reilly.
