  6. 6. Defini7onDrupal  is  a  completely  free,  open  source  content  management  system  that  many  intelligent  companies  are  using  today  to  provide  for  their  needs.  Drupals  many  features  and  add-­‐ons  allow  it  to  be  used  for  a  variety  of  website  needs;  perhaps  for  marke7ng,  internal  communica7ons,  informa7onal  websites,  or  for  social  networking  purposes.  If  a  needed  feature  is  not  currently  available,  it  has  a  proven  community  of  developers  who  can  be  paid  to  do  the  work  for  you.  Drupals  access  control  system  means  that  it  can  be  easily  applied  to  your  organiza7onal  structure.  Overall,  Drupal  is  a  good  choice  for  todays  companies  of  any  size  because  it  is  free,  easy,  and  incredibly  flexible.
