The future of content management + how Drupal fits in

Session description

Suzanne Dergacheva

Drupal has long been known as a top-notch content management system. It’s well-know for its flexibility, meaning that you can customize it to fit your content model, and also build custom features around that content. As we move into the age of digital experience platforms, where content management is just one piece of the puzzle, we should be asking ourselves how Drupal fits into the landscape.

In this session, we’ll talk about the future from a content strategy perspective and what role Drupal will play. Topics will include:

The benefits of a content-centric digital experience platform and how Drupal stands out
The future role of the content editor
The right way to integrate content strategy into a redesign project, and measuring content success
What it means to provide flexible content management tools and why that’s important
The continued importance of a strong content model
How to use Drupal as a digital experience platform rather than just a content management system
