Introduction to Drupal 8: What's in it for Digital Experience Management?

Session Track
Experience Level

Drupal 8, the latest version of the popular open source content management system, has been released on November 19, 2015 after nearly five years of development. The new release has a lot of promising new features in store – especially for digital experience managers: easier marketing tool integration, a mobile-first approach and better support for multilingual websites.

Yet how does the release of Drupal 8 affect organizations using an older version of Drupal? Should they update their current website? Which version of Drupal should companies new to the CMS use?

During this session, we will go over the new features in Drupal 8 and discuss the impact of its release on existing Drupal websites.
