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.

Drupal camps are great events to see old friends and make new ones. But on top of that, if they are in places with good weather, great gastronomy and amazing beaches, the mix is just too irresistible (albeit making it really hard to sell to your company that you are really going there to work). But politics and complexities apart, there I found myself for another year (my second in Drupal Camp Spain). And note that last year this same camp was in Alicante (my home…

Migrations are not always a walk in the park and, as we have already seen in previous articles, they may need a lot of planning. If we are talking about moving from big versions (namely Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 to Drupal 8), just talking about infrastructure can cause you to start to sweat. Even in Drupal itself, the truth is (or was until recently) migrations were not fully stable and they could give you more than a headache. On top of that, building the local…
