Why choose Drupal?

Drupal CMS is ideal for complex, content heavy, high traffic websites where integration is critical; it is very popular with universities and governments, where high performance and accessibility is a must.  Drupal’s great standard features support easy content authoring, reliable performance and excellent security.  However, its real power is in its flexible architecture: the modular nature of  the CMS  helps you build versatile, structured content that dynamic web experiences need.

Catalyst services to support Drupal CMS

When planning a CMS project, organisations usually have three criteria: quality, time and price.  As a Drupal suporting partner and GovCMS panel member, we offer proven expertise. Our expert Drupal team provide a full range of services for enterprise business applications and websites:

Website assessments and consultancy

You may need help to assess your organisation’s needs and how Drupal can help you realise your goals, whether that is building a new website, developing your existing one or migrating to a new one.  Catalyst’s team of Drupal experts  can work with your team to review requirements: design implementation discovery, migration discovery, development cost estimates, module/distribution functional assessment, component architecture,
high-level design, content-type specifications and risk planning.

Drupal theme development and enhancement

Are you looking to extend the functionality of your existing Drupal site? We can add new features and make User Experience (UX) improvements.

If it’s brand enhancement and visual design that’s your focus, we can align your site to your brand and re-design it to meet your goals and the needs of your end users.

Drupal upgrades

If it’s a major version upgrade you’re after, we have expertise in rebuilding Drupal 7 (or older) sites into the latest Drupal version.

Content migration

Getting content migration right is critical to maintaining service levels to your website visitors.  Catalyst has a wealth of expertise in delivering complex, content heavy, high traffic sites.  We can migrate your content from an existing website, an older version of Drupal or a unique data source.


Looking to create a seamless UX across your site? Catalyst develop bespoke open source e-commerce solutions to meet the requirements of your business that integrate into your Drupal website.

Drupal CMS integration

Integration is at the heart of digital transformation.  It enables collaboration, provides accessibility and ease of use for your users.  We can integrate your Drupal site with platforms and services that your business interfaces with: external or locally-hosted.

Load testing

Catalyst can run load tests on your systems to understand what your current maximum capacity is and give you proactive suggestions to address any shortfall.  This will:

  • Ensure lightning fast load speeds;
  • Maintain a positive user experience for your learners;
  • Avoid system crashes that are disruptive, stressful and can cause reputational damage.

Cloud migration & cloud hosting

Catalyst provides cost-effective cloud hosting on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver the ultimate in flexibility, scalability, and security for high performance websites.

Whether you are undertaking digital transformation from an on premise infrastructure,  migrating to the cloud for the first time, or you’re migrating from another cloud hosting provider …. we can help. A smooth cloud migration is critical to maintaining the availability and performance  of your website; careful analysis, planning and execution is the key to success.

Managed services

If you need comprehensive support for your Drupal site, we provide a full managed service.  Alternatively, you can buy blocks of support to flex with your requirements: technical issues or day-to-day design support.

Catalyst’s expert AWS cloud team is multi-region, offering 24/7 Follow-The-Sun support and access to resources.
