WordPress vs Drupal: How the website industry is evolving


Why this session?

The Content Management industry is very competitive. The dynamics between Drupal and WordPress have shifted notably in the past few years as WordPress becomes more accepted in the mid-market.

I think it would be useful to have a direct conversation about how the website market ($190B yearly) is being shaped overall:

  • Lay of the land, from Wix ($450M revenue) on the low end, up to Adobe AEM ($1B revenue) on the high end
  • How Wix and Squarespace (SaaS products) are disrupting shared hosting
  • The battle of the CMS's in the midmarket: Drupal vs WordPress
  • How Drupal and WordPress compete with Sitecore and Adobe Experience Manager

We've invested a lot of time researching this at Pantheon. It would be fun and pertinent to share our research and drive a discussion in the community around Drupal's position in the market, now and in the future.
