Drupal 8 powers Investor Relations websites with its advanced WCMS capabilities
How Financial services are innovating with Drupal 8 WCMS to deliver powerful experiences to be more services oriented and increase engagement.
The digital transformation wave has touched every sector. However, the financial services sector is somewhat conventional and rigid – experimenting little due to the regulatory compliance issues, sticking to legacy software and practices.
Therefore, one of the most regulated sectors - financial services has no choice but to rapidly modernize and innovate – living up to the expectations of the millennials and digital-first customers. To deliver the kind of experiences that engage and fulfill expectations, however, they need a platform that is also next-generation. Drupal 8 enterprise web content management system (WCMS) meets the criteria on several counts.
IR websites are basically the public or investor relations portals where public listed companies share their most critical, sensitive and regulatory information with their stakeholders. These include shareholders, institutional investors, media and analysts. The IR website is the primary channel to publish regulatory filings (SEC, RNS etc.) press releases, and other company information like daily stock prices, analyst estimates, share price calculators, share price charting tools and live and delayed feeds.
Security, availability, accessibility and reliability are most critical for all IR and corporate websites as they are regulated by various compliance standards and regulatory bodies. Nasdaq explained in their announcement, that all the publicly listed companies on Nasdaq are eligible for an upgrade of their websites to the next-gen model "beginning in 2017 using a variety of redesign options, all of which leverage Acquia and the Drupal 8 open source enterprise web content management (WCM) system."
