Drupal as a platform for the US Government


In this session we will explore the business factors and decisions that led the United States Department of the Interior (DOI) to choose Drupal and develop and expose an open platform to each of its bureaus. The session will cover how the platform was built and how the very first sites were launched. Topics will include:

  • Rapid development and migration from an existing platform into the newly developed Drupal platform.

  • Risk management: Mitigating the risk of launching a premier government website on a new and untested platform.

  • Proving the ROI of an unproven platform.

  • Managing scope during the discovery and planning phases and ensuring budget success.
