Streamlining Website Migrations with Drupal and CTAC

In the realm of .gov websites, where functionality, security, and compliance are top priority, Drupal emerges as a powerful tool. With its open-source community, flexibility, and adherence to standards, Drupal stands out as a preferred and proven content management system (CMS) for many government agencies. Moreover, when coupled with the expertise of organizations like CTAC, Drupal migrations provide government agencies with a platform to truly achieve their digital transformation goals while also enhancing the overall user experience by meeting critical government standards.

Understanding Drupal’s Benefits

Drupal’s appeal lies in its robust open-source community, comprising hundreds of thousands of developers continually enhancing security and introducing new features. Its highly flexible nature allows for extensive customization with lightweight code, ensuring sustainability and adaptability over time while avoiding cost prohibitive licensing associated with other CMS platforms. Additionally, Drupal aligns seamlessly with US Web Design Standards and Section 508, as it is essential for government websites to ensure accessibility for all users.

CTAC’s Approach to Drupal Migrations

CTAC adopts a structured Agile Approach tailored to government requirements and agencies’ unique needs. This approach goes above facilitating seamless migrations. It also enhances websites to meet customer needs and align with digital strategy goals by enabling the evolution of requirements during the migration. This ensures that our clients maximize the available functionality of Drupal and evolve business practices to streamline workflows and mitigate current pain points by establishing automated processes.  CTAC goes beyond migration, prioritizing user experience optimization in collaboration with the customer. Our NN/g Designers work closely with agencies to ensure that websites not only transition smoothly but also offer enhanced value and flexibility to users, moving beyond a flat “lift and shift” approach.

CTAC’s innovative tools, like our Content Migration tool alongside Drupal migration modules, enables our teams to complete a migration efficiently within a timeframe of 120 days.
