The Great Drupal 8 Debate

The official release of Drupal 8 is coming Fall 2015, so community support for Drupal 6 will cease 3 months after the release date - likely by the end of the year. For many companies, this means it's time for an upgrade, but is Drupal 7 or Drupal 8 the right choice for your organization?

Drupal 8's out-of-the-box responsive design, improved software integrations and best in class editorial tools, means many organizations are planning to upgrade as soon as possible. As with any new technology, there are benefits and challenges in being an early adopter.  

This eBook guides you through the decision making process, highlighting strengths of both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 as well as a case study from a recent organization's journey to Drupal 8.

Topics include: 

  • Considerations in making your choice
  • Challenges Drupal 8 solves for
  • A case study from a recent Drupal 8 project
  • And more!
