Media websites are large and heavy configurations due to the enormous amount of data, including videos, images etc. and need a robust content management system in order to fulfil the expectations from it. A media house is no different from other businesses and monetization is a crucial factor that needs to be considered before going online. Of course there are other areas that also need attention such as responsiveness, content management etc. As a media owner, if you are planning to launch your website using Drupal, it is imperative that you ask questions related to the following areas, to the company managing the entire process: Monetization: This is a vital area and a critical aspect to be considered by any media organization as developing and managing a large website is an expensive matter. Most media houses would want a minimum of 10% of their revenue to be generated by the website, so that the traffic is used well and can be monetized. Drupal provides multiple options in themes which can bring in substantial revenue. Media houses can look at options such as promotions, advertising, subscriptions and even single purchase dealings to help monetize the website. Personalization: The competitive media industry is always looking for myriad ways to create value for the visitor and generate user loyalty in return. It is here that personalization plays a major role. By creating user profiles, it is easy to track the user’s choice and interest areas so that the content can be prioritized accordingly. Thus it becomes easier to create personalized content. Apart from the above mentioned points, your website builder should also be able to suggest how to use user-generated content or gamification for your monetary benefit. Understanding Content: The Drupal company that a media house employs, should understand the kind of content essential to create the maximum impact. The workflow of your organization, the various distinctions of the industry and the many challenges of content management should be clearly understood to create an impactful and practical website.Therefore, a web development firm with enough experience servicing media clients could be your ideal choice for this critical project of yours. Site Responsiveness: News, content, shopping, and directions are being consumed through the mobile phone and with the entire consumer world going mobile, your organization wouldn’t want to be left behind. Media organizations need responsive sites to ensure better engagement and lower bounce rates and your service provider should be alert to this important fact. Scalability: As your business grows, your website should be capable of handling the growing traffic and added content. It should be capable of managing complicated architecture and the Drupal firm being considered should be able to scale up operations as and when needed. Security: This is another extremely important factor that cannot be neglected by any media owner, as there is a lot of confidential data that needs protection. The Drupal web development company should be competent to manage issues related to security. Make sure you, as a media owner, ask the right question to the web development firm you employ. Of course, if you partner with Zyxware Technologies, it will be a foregone conclusion that the above areas will be addressed without a doubt and much more too.

The health sector in our country is undergoing rapid growth, throwing up a whole lot of possibilities and challenges for the industry. It is one of the largest sectors in India, in terms of employment as well as revenue. Today, the Indian healthcare market today is pegged at US$ 100 billion and is expected to touch US$ 280 billion by 2020. However, one of the key bottlenecks in our healthcare system is that it is still unable to cater to our massive population.To be successful in the competitive healthcare market, what is primarily required is complex medical information management systems, focused business intelligence, and an IT infrastructure that meets the swiftly changing customer demands and offers cost-effective healthcare to the public. Using a scalable and robust CMS allows physicians to offer service to more patients in less time. For example, in hospitals when a patient is shifted from one care to another, doctors can exchange and view medical records through electronic devices. This helps to save a lot of time and effort. Telemedicine: Combining technology with healthcare Telemedicine has become the popular method of medical consultation and treatment in the Western countries. In telemedicine, the medical information is exchanged from one site to another with the help of communication devices to diagnose and treat a patient’s clinical health. Though it began about 40 years ago through hospitals for extending care to patients in remote areas, today an increasing number of employers are looking to offer telemedicine as an amazing alternative to time-consuming patient-doctor visits.Therefore, to reach out to more patients and to enable interactions between medical practitioners in various parts of the world, the healthcare sector needs to build a flexible platform using complex software with numerous beneficial features. Drupal: Revolutionizing the healthcare industry Drupal has been active in entertainment, publishing, e-commerce and government sectors, but is yet to be adopted fully by the healthcare sector.Unlike any other industry, healthcare needs a sophisticated platform like Drupal for developing healthcare web applications to cater more to patients and medical staff.Drupal has evolved successfully over the years and, its latest version, Drupal 8 offers state-of-the-art features for healthcare sector to operate successfully. Here are the top 8 reasons why healthcare needs Drupal 8: Connectivity: With Drupal 8, you can connect the website and the digital assets with other networks. Thus, you can integrate your website with other platforms to share patient details and medical information with doctors and hospitals. In addition, patients would also be able to access their individual medical information. Drupal is an extremely secure CMS which provides permission settings that allows access to the data only for the right user. Flexibility: One of the major benefits of Drupal is its ability to adopt new features with absolute ease. This flexibility allows you to manage digital assets conveniently. Since innovations are happening rapidly in the health sector, you can make changes and adopt innovations smoothly into your Drupal website. Drupal 8 makes use of HTML 5: HTML 5 offers codes for managing dates, video, email, audio, and various other features on website and mobile. Patients and physicians can easily access the content, including the video and audio, readily. Mobile first design: Smart phones are very common today, and a website which is easy to view and navigate on a mobile phone is a must. Drupal 8 comes with mobile-friendly themes which suits any screen size. So, you don’t have to build a separate website for mobile users. Security: Drupal without doubt has the best security features, which is why some of the major government websites are Drupal-powered. Hospital websites store voluminous amounts of data, records and digital assets, and with Drupal all these assets are well-protected. Customized patient experience: Another major reason why we suggest Drupal 8 for healthcare institutions is because of its capability to deliver customized and valuable content to patients and physicians online. The enhancements made in Drupal 8 speed up the delivery of medical content. Multi-lingual features: Our country has 22 official languages. Having a website which translates quickly is helpful for patients within our country as well as for those from other countries. Drupal 8 is built with extensive language translation features which tackles this issue. Better user experience and engagement:Visitors want instant loading of web pages and content. This is a must to ensure better interaction with patients and to offer them uninterrupted communication online. Drupal 8 has increased the page load speed by integrating Symfony into its core, which has enabled streamlining of the custom Drupal core code. With a fascinating array of features, Drupal 8 is the right choice for creating an engaging and user-friendly website for healthcare sector. If you need a healthcare website, we, at Zyxware, will help you build an efficient and affordable one that serves your patients and physicians better.Please get in touch with us to know more about our Drupal development services.

Drupal is gaining popularity with Governments all over the world. The solidity of the platform would probably be the primary reason why Governments are moving their online portals to Drupal. Here is a list of the top 10 Government websites running on Drupal. If you are looking to get your site built in Drupal get in touch with us for a free quote.
