Creating business value with Drupal


On the bottom line business decisions are always based on value, where value is the benefit in relationship to the cost.

Drupal 8 has a number of strong value propositions for enterprise customers:

  • Open Source
  • Configuration management
  • Distributions
  • Multisite capabilities
  • Strong and flexible API
  • Built on standards 
  • Sourcecode management with composer
  • Extensible features (commerce, media, headless, etc.)

In this session I will show how we position Drupal 8 as a value creating platform towards our enterprise customers.

Standardizing all applications to Drupal allows on the one hand to achieve significant value creation due to cost reduction in the areas of security auditing, quality assurance, deployment, hosting, and servicing. On the other hand new investments can largely be spent on innovation and improvement. 

The information in this session will be backed by real case studies from our clients.

Target audience

  • C-Level, sales reps, account- and project managers of software companies
  • Managers and decision makers at enterprises that are either already using Drupal or considering using Drupal.
