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.

I spoke about many of these advantages last October 2019 at my Open Source talk in Extremadura Digital. Open source has won the credibility battle, but the war we face now is the challenge of making it sustainable:…

If you’re currently on Drupal 8, you can expect a similar experience with Drupal 9 when it is released later this year in June. As Dries has said, “The big deal about Drupal 9 is...that it shouldn’t be a big deal.”  Drupal 9 will ship with all of the features of Drupal 8 that the community has been updating and adding to since 2015. 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 …
