Axelerant Blog: Choose Your CMS: Drupal 8 vs. WordPress

Though WordPress’s easy setup has made quite a name, the Open Source CMS is still far from perfect. There are instances where pen Source users prefer Drupal as their CMS of choice for the advantages it offers. 

For those who are new to the world of CMSs, WordPress is often the natural choice as it is easy to get started with. For those who would like to level up and need more customized functionality from their websites, Drupal meets these needs well. 

While these advantages take over Drupal, there are a few that both the platforms share equally. For example, both Drupal and WordPress offer eCommerce capabilities and are redesigned to be more platform-agnostic. Similarly, you can decouple Drupal as well as WordPress. The drupal site can act as a content API server on the first day itself, while REST API is now bundled in the WordPress core for developers to experiment and use it in a decoupled way.

If you are a small business, WordPress might be the solution for you, but Drupal offers significant advantages for large enterprises. In case you are one of the latter, the next section will guide you through the migration process.
