Drupal is an open source Web infrastructure or content management system that has seen unbelievable growth in the last several years. A PR Web release provides evidence of just how powerful the growth has been in, “Achieve Internet Brings Open-Source Enterprise Web Development to L.A. with New Office.”
The press release begins:
In response to increasing demand in the region, San Diego-based Achieve Internet, Inc., the premier Southern California provider of enterprise Drupal solutions, is expanding to Los Angeles with a new office. The explosive growth of the open-source Web infrastructure, Drupal, has resulted in a shortage of enterprise-level Drupal engineers and consultants in the region. Achieve Internet aims to fill that void and already supports many of the area’s top companies deploying open-source software.
Drupal is just one instance of the surge in open source growth over the last few years. As Drupal is known for its Web infrastructure, another industry leader, LucidWorks, is known for its enterprise search offerings. LucidWorks Search is a development platform that simplifies and accelerates the building of secure, scalable, and cost-effective search applications built on the open source Apache Lucene/Solr technology.
