One Consolidated Federal Website Running Multiple Drupal Sites?
The federal government quit allowing agencies to register new .gov domain names in June of 2011. Not long after, many have suggested that there be one single consolidated .gov website, likely running Drupal, Joomla! or another open source CMS.
Others believe that the government would be better served by using a decoupled content management system (CMS), such as Alfresco, Nuxeo and Percussion, which separate the content from the presentation layer more effectively than Drupal or Joomla!, which are examples of coupled CMSes.
Joseph Wykes is the president of Percussion Software, so as you might expect, he is on the side of decoupled CMSes. His argument is that coupled CMSes do not allow content to be redeployed easily enough, stating that "If you natively are able to take content from a variety of different sources from inside your organization and from other third-party organizations, normalize it and then easily reuse it and redeploy it across a variety of targets, sites and channels, your efficiency gain is dramatic."
