The needs of the media industry in regards to web presence are fairly standard. They want great look and feel along with excellent functionality. Digital content creation and management, along with monetization are some important and focused activities of a media company online.
Media industry CMS needs range from using event calendars to integrating with social media, as well as leveraging polls, surveys, video and contest promotions, video shows, live telecasts, photo galleries, online payment integration, and other consumer interaction features. All of this is handled extremely well by Drupal, although it’s not the only CMS available.

Managing media industry websites the drupal way

  1. 1. Managing media industry websites the Drupal way The needs of the media industry in regards to web presence are fairly standard. They want great look and feel along with excellent functionality. Digital content creation and management, along with monetization are some important and focused activities of a media company online. Media industry CMS needs range from using event calendars to integrating with social media, as well as leveraging polls, surveys, video and contest promotions, video shows, live telecasts, photo galleries, online payment integration, and other consumer interaction features. All of this is handled extremely well by Drupal, although it’s not the only CMS available. However, Drupal seems to be the top choice of web development teams all around the world when it comes to working with the media industry. What works in Drupal’s favor is that many large and mid-sized media companies currently use it for their web needs, and it has gained a lot of momentum in the publishing and media world. Drupal also has a long, successful track record of adapting to the specific needs of the publishing industry. Some of the advantages that I can think of include: 1. Quick prototyping of websites 2. Availability of modules specific to media industry 3. Social media integration facilities 4. Availability of 3rd party community developed modules specific to the media industry 5. Highly scalable and can be deployed in any network architecture, allowing millions of users to access the website To support my case, here are some high profile names in the media industry that use Drupal: InfoWorld, Grammy, Radio Netherlands Worldwide, Australian Broadcasting Company, CNN, BBC, Reuters, Onion, NowPublic, TeamSugar, Fox Searchlight, and many more.Visit IVESIA’S WEBSITE Follow us at LINKEDIN and TWITTER
