Drupal provides the modern WCM capabilities to build, operate and optimize sites and experiences across any channel, device, personalization strategy and more. Drupal allows you to tap into the global power of an open source community, yet build exactly what your organization and brand requires to engage and convert customers and prospects.

Acquia and Drupal

Dries Buytaert created the first Drupal content management framework while finishing his master’s degree in 2000. As he was working toward his doctorate while also leading the open source Drupal project, he began to envision a company devoted to the success of Drupal and to supporting its growing community. 

To “take Drupal full-time,” Buytaert and Jay Batson founded Acquia in 2007 to provide infrastructure, support and services to enterprise organizations using Drupal, to help Drupal scale, to promote open source software, to make Drupal easier, to spur greater adoption, and to empower a thriving network of Drupalists around the world. 

Acquia initially offered managed cloud hosting and fine-tuned services for Drupal, and has now grown to provide a fully loaded digital experience platform with Drupal at its core.

Acquia brings the same pioneering spirit of Drupal to providing the world’s most ambitious brands with technology that allows them to embrace innovation and create customer moments that matter.

There will be a few changes, primarily with system requirements and third-party dependencies, in order to ensure platform security:…

When Drupal and Acquia news starts piling up, it's time for a Scan. Starting this week with... Drupal 9, which you may recall is scheduled to drop on June 3rd, 2020. In a recent What's New post on drupal.org, we are all reminded that "many contributed or even custom modules only need a one-line change to be ready for Drupal 9." Another reminder: there are community created tools to check the status of your modules: the upgrade status module, or the Drupal Check …

Drupal 9 is scheduled to be released on June 3, 2020. What this means to you has been extensively covered in the Driesnote at DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019. Now, how do you go about actually getting the job done and removing deprecated APIs from contributed modules you’re using? There are several tips I’d like to share here. Nothing breathtaking, but rather a systematic approach to ensuring you’ll stay on top of things so your apps are ready on the day of the Drupal 9…

DrupalCon AMSTERDAM 2019 is coming up: from 28 - 31, October 2019, in the watery capital of the Netherlands.  Acquia will be there, of course, with a booth, demonstrations, mini-sessions, and an apres event that includes drinks, a winter simulator and table football.  But we’re here to talk about the meaty, developer-focused activity that Acquia is bringing. According to my calculations, we’ve got that in seven varieties.  Check it out.  The keynote by Dries…
