Drupal 8, Don’t Be Late (Enterprise Orgs, We’re Looking at You)


After building one of the first enterprise Drupal 8 platforms, we speak from experience when we say: if you are an enterprise organization, you should be seriously considering the move to Drupal 8. For many in the Drupal world, Drupal 8 is still viewed with apprehension. With this panel, we’re here to unveil the D8 mystery.

In the changing CMS landscape, enterprises have a lot to gain from the more decoupled, API-focused content repository that Drupal 8 is evolving toward. Drupal’s paradigm shift will vastly improve the way organizations ingest, store, publish, and distribute content through multiple channels. But is the investment worth it? For the enterprise, our answer is an enthusiastic yes.

  • How Drupal 8’s structure fundamentally changes the way organizations approach platform building

  • The impact of Drupal 8’s configuration management improvements

  • The benefits of integrated front-end tools and external libraries

  • The challenges enterprise organizations will face adopting Drupal 8 (and how to overcome them)
