Drupal is a powerful portal framework and a content management system. However the power of the system can really be tapped into if the site is built right. Whether a Drupal site is built right or not is not something that may not be very obvious in all scenarios or for an untrained eye. There are definitely implications for not building Drupal right but the implications may not be very evident always. So how do you know if a Drupal site is built right?
We had earlier written about how to self evaluate the quality of build of your Drupal website. The steps outlined in the self evaluation should give you general indications on whether the Drupal site was built right. However to know for sure whether it was so you will have to engage a Drupal company to conduct a full Drupal audit on your site.
A full Drupal Audit should take care of the following aspects of the site
- Drupal Coding standards
- Drupal API standards
- Nomenclature Aspects
- Drupal SEO Aspects
- Drupal Performance Aspects
- Drupal Security Aspects
- Drupal Configuration Aspects
Do note that this would only tell you whether the Drupal site was built right from a technology perspective. There could still be aspects related to the requirements that were implemented incorrectly. Catching those would require a full testing of your Drupal site against documented requirements. This is where documentation of requirements is very important.
We will be happy to offer our services to conduct a full Drupal Audit on your site against these aspects listed earlier to find out if your site was built right. We will also be able to take the site through a full round of testing against documented requirements. If requirements were not documented originally our business analysis team could work with you to help build out your requirements first and then have our testing team test the whole site against these requirements.
