Metasite Drupal for Financial Institutions announced

On February 16, 2017 at Digital Integration in Wealth Management 2017 conference and exhibition in London Metasite announced advance availability of Metasite Drupal for Financial Institutions, a distribution of the world’s most popular enterprise grade open source web content management platform tailored for the financial services industry.

The announcement was made at the end of Mr. Kirvaitis’ talk ‘The Big Move to Open Source: discussion of pros and cons of an open source digital experience management platform in financial services’.

“Today I am happy to announce Metasite Drupal for Financial Institutions, a freely available, packaged distribution of the open source Drupal web content management system designed to help financial services organisations get up and running with a Drupal-based portal or website with considerably less effort and risk,” said Aldas Kirvaitis, chairman of Metasite at the end of his presentation. “Drupal is an amazing digital experience management platform that gives a financial services enterprise complete freedom to innovate while enabling it to preserve its intellectual property, considerably reduce vendor risks and achieve significant cost efficiencies without sacrificing functionality or performance.”

Metasite Drupal for Financial Institutions distribution will include a set of thoroughly vetted 3rd party modules that Metasite considers essential for Drupal website operation by a financial institution – along with a number of custom modules built by Metasite.

Access to the web content management platform’s full source code gives a financial services organisation freedom to decide when and how to develop and roll out new features and functionalities.

Over the years Metasite has accumulated extensive experience in helping global and regional financial services organisations migrate large websites and customer information portals to Drupal WCM platform, with clients reporting a variety of realised benefits, including:

  • Reduced time to market for the releases of new functionalities
  • Reduced dependency on suppliers’ proprietary platforms
  • Better control of clients’ intellectual property and source code
  • Significant content editing and management workflow usability improvements
  • Significant cost savings

Introduction of a new Drupal distribution specifically adapted to meet the demands of the financial services industry is a natural step for Metasite as it seeks to help global and regional financial institutions realise their digital visions and implement digital transformations in a safer and less costly manner.

Metasite Drupal for Financial Institutions will be available in April 2017.
