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.

But I've been most interested in doing fun things…

You may need to show your designs to people who fit a certain professional persona, or hear feedback from people with a particular technical skill set. Once you’re in touch with testers who fit the bill, you’ll have to navigate their busy schedules, and disparate locations, to organize their test sessions. But consider this: There are dedicated…

When managing a whole government platform, as we do in Australia with govCMS, there need to be layers of testing, staging, and assurance before you push code to production. Automated testing allows us to delegate repeatable and menial tasks to a robot in a scripted fashion. These tests deliver a way of detecting basic syntax errors, breakages of coding standards, build failures, and regressions with a high degree of surety. We can also be assured that functionality…
