Evaluating the Landscape of Drupal Competition

Session Category Sessions off the "Drupal Island" Room Auditorium Audience All Attendees Time Slot Sat 2:00pm to 2:45pm (2/19/22)

Drupal is not alone in the space of digital tools. Competitors like Wordpress, Joomla, Wix, SquareSpace, and more all offer similar content management features. Other products like Contentful and Webflow offer specific capabilities that also compete with Drupal.

This presentation tears down each of these products in an attempt to better understand its overlap with Drupal. How does Drupal differentiate? What opportunities exist for Drupal to become more competitive?

This talk takes a high level look at Drupal as a product by performing a SWOT analysis. Concepts like low/no-code, configurability, data modeling, APIs, and developer experience will be explored.
