Read what we have to say about the GovCMS project

An innovation platform for a forward thinking government: govCMS
The govCMS platform was launched in March of 2015 under the initiative of the Department of Finance, Australia to provide a single platform for all levels of the government agencies to streamline website development. "What govCMS allows is faster delivery of services, more flexibility. More effective use of public money. This platform has made these things easier."John Sheridan John Sheridan is the Chief Information and Security Officer2 for the Department of Finance for the Australian Government. govCMS gives all department agencies access to a content management system that is highly secure, easy to use, flexible, stable and above all open source. So instead of depending on a proprietary software that would have made them vulnerable, government agencies now have a system that is flexible and responsive. The govCMS is developed as a cloud-based distribution of Drupal under a partnership between Acquia1 and the online services branch of the Department of Finance. Features of govCMS Modularity Drupal being modular in nature, modules can be built on govCMS to customize features. These modules available on Drupal.org can be used by other agencies, cutting the cost, allowing flexibility and scalability. Secure govCMS being a distribution of Drupal is secure mitigating any need for expensive risk management systems. Agile Another advantage of the govCMS distribution is that it is agile. Most websites can be built in two weeks if there is no underlying complexity to it. The govCMS is a great digital transformation platform on which multiple players benefit. Government agencies have a secure ready to go package to build their site and site users get responsive user-friendly sites that are easy to access. Site administrators can add and edit content easily. Being agile, free and open source, it is easy in the pockets of the Aussie taxpayers. To further help Australian government agencies build their websites, the Department of Finance has set up a panel of Drupal service providers to bid when tenders are called to build websites. The panel members like Zyxware Technologies are chosen after rigorous selection process and are well equipped to meet the requirements of the Australian Government websites. References 1.

The Top 10 Government Sites built with Drupal
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. The White House (USA) If ever there was a website that brought so much attention to Drupal and brought it to the limelight then it would be official website of the White House. Considered the poster boy of the Drupal community, this famous web portal generated a lot of enthusiasm and debate when it migrated to Drupal. Being one of the more important websites of the United States and as one which is closely watched by the rest of the world, the US Government was searching for a robust platform that had to be scalable and at the cutting edge of technology. Their search ended with Drupal and as a result, a number of other websites of various US Government agencies have migrated to Drupal. URL: http://www.whitehouse.gov Federal IT Spending Dashboard (USA) This is another US Government based website powered by Drupal. One of the prime reasons why the US Government likes Drupal is that is Free Software. In addition to that the flexibility provided by Drupal through community contributed modules. The site was developed to showcase the effectiveness with which the CIOs of various Government agencies have managed government IT spending. URL: http://www.itdashboard.gov Data Gov (UK) Following closely on the heels of the US Government, the UK Government has started using Drupal to lay the foundation of their online presence. Utilizing a very slick theme, the portal aims to provide a single platform for sharing public data that will help its citizens understand how the government is functioning. Another noteworthy point of the website is the fact that the father of the web - Sir Tim Berners Lee is the brainchild behind the project. URL: http://www.data.gov.uk Canadian Tourism Commission (Canada) Drupal received another shot in its arm when the Canadian Government decided to use Drupal for powering the website of its Tourism Department. Utilizing the services of Drupal the Canadian Government wishes to inspire the world to explore the natural beauty of Canada. URL: http://mediacentre.canada.travel Human Rights Museum (Canada) When the Canadian Parliament wanted to to enhance the public's understanding of human rights and, to promote respect for others, it chose Drupal to spread that vision throughout the web by allowing it to support the web portal of the Canadian Human Rights Museum. URL: http://humanrightsmuseum.ca Official website of the French Government The French have also started to take a keen interest in Drupal and have confidently decided to utilize the services of the Drupal community straight away to power their official website to help them keep in touch with the French Citizens. URL: http://www.gouvernement.fr Innovate Direct Gov(UK) Yet another initiative taken by the UK Government using Drupal. This one has to be the most artistic of all the Government web sites that we have been able to review.

URL: http://innovate.direct.gov.uk Prime Minister of Australia's website. (Australia) The Australian Government is yet another Government agency which has decided to use Drupal and uses it to support the online portal of the Australian Prime Ministers Office, to help their citizens keep in touch with their elected representative.
