Making the Right Choice for Your CMS

This article has hopefully helped you understand some of the key differences between Drupal and Joomla. Although traditional rubric will say to use Drupal for large and/or complicated sites, and Joomla for simpler, smaller sites, one or the other could still be the best choice for a large or small project scenario, depending on what the website needs to accomplish and a host of other factors as outlined in this article.

Deciding between Drupal and Joomla may come down to the native capabilities of the CMS, anticipated support requirements, or future customization needs; it may even tie into marketplace concerns, such as the availability of professional expertise and services at a level which will result in a successful CMS project. Perhaps neither Drupal nor Joomla is appropriate, so you’ll need to look to one of the hundreds of other options in CMS platforms. No matter what, careful consideration and planning (and a properly scoped requirements document) will help ensure you make the best choice for your content management system.
