Hull City Council is migrating its website from Drupal 9 to the Jadu Central platform, citing problems in recruiting skilled staff to work on the former.

It has begun the redesign process, plans to release a new version of during the spring and will migrate more of its web estate over the course of this year.

This follows deployments of standalone sites including Travel Hull and Working for Hull City Council on the Jadu platform over the past year.

The council’s director of law and partnerships, Ian Anderson, said: “We had struggled to recruit staff with the skills to develop our Drupal platform and microsites were being developed on a number of alternate platforms, creating an inchoate approach. 

“The low code  environment, and its integration capabilities offered by Jadu Central, together with the focus on best practice, is supporting us to develop multiple websites at pace, and integrate those sites into a federated coherent structure.”

Drupal is an open source platform for content that provides flexibility at a lower cost that proprietary systems, but for which skilled developers are in limited supply.
