Often times in a website requires easy content creation workflows. In addition to Articles, Pages or News Posts sometimes a site requires for instance:
Uploading and maintain a list of images and teaser text for a jQuery SlideDeck or Slideshow.
Provide some tag references for allowable dates: Spring 2013, Fall 2013, Winter 2014; for display use with annual events.

Drush is a command line shell and scripting interface for Drupal. Drush allows you the website developer or administrator to easily download, enable, disable, uninstall, and update modules/themes/profiles/translations using an interactive shell in a familiar Linux package management style. For instance you can `drush dl views` and then `drush en views` in a Drupal webroot to install the Views project. Or, you can update your entire site and its Drupal related dependencies with `drush pm-update`.Learn More

In the below example a client website can request any page of the website with an additional url parameter &remoteembed and the page output will be stripped of banners, header, footer and sidebars for remote embedding into another website.Learn More
