Rapid Pace of Innovation

The Government of Canada has officially endorsed open-source. Many government departments are choosing Drupal as the preferred open source content management system. There are many reasons why the government is shifting to open source and Drupal. In this webinar, our experts will highlight precisely the benefits that 52 Canadian Government departments get from Drupal CMS.

Join OPIN and Acquia on December 5, 2019, as we cover areas that will enable you to build a roadmap for your government department and build an authentic brand identity.

  • How to leverage expertise and best practices from other gov departments to innovate
  • How to architect a multi-cloud platform that helps improve the citizen digital experience
  • Lessons learned by other government agencies and from private sector companies

Drupal is the number one CMS for the public sector for its ability to reduce integration complexity; ensure security and confidentiality; use proven standards and technology, and; assume the total cost of ownership.

Learn how your department will gain flexibility, freedom to iterate rapidly and speed up time to market with open-source.

Open-Source in Gov

As it stands, the Government of Canada faces issues with processes, procurement, implementation, overspending, siloed technology, and ease of implementation. 

A capable and high-performing Public Service that embraces innovation, transformation, and continuous renewal should run on the Drupal platform; Like many other departments already do. Government contractors have a duty to explore open-source alternatives and to educate the market as to modern industry-standard development practices.

As stated by the Federal Government of Canada:

"Effective government requires high-performing public servants. An agile, efficient and effective Public Service is essential to the well-being of Canadians, fuels productivity and supports sound governance of the country."

Do not be left behind using a custom or proprietary system, that impedes changes and makes it difficult to acquire new capabilities. Learn about the power of Drupal.
