Acquia Digital Experience Platform

If you have the staff and resources to get the builds up and running then this [Acquia Digital Experience Platform] is a fantastic solution. If you are looking for something very static, that will not need much functionality, nor change content often, then it likely [provides] more [of a] solution than you need. Definitely a top offering for mid-level to enterprise-level solutions.

Cons

Acquia Digital Experience Platform

  • Using the platform is not for the faint of heart. It takes some understanding of how a back-end system technology works to be able to get anything done or even know where to go.
  • Being able to verify DNS services is not easy to do. A digital market is required to do this with Facebook or Google from time to time but it is hidden from the non-tech user. I need to find a tech expert to do a simple task that is holding up the quality of our digital advertising. This is the way the digital world works and these capabilities need to be exposed and easy to verify by non-tech users quickly without the possibility of disrupting the system.

As a Drupal Web Developer, I have not encountered or been exposed to any other hosting solution that could surpass the benefits of having a site hosted on Acquia Cloud. Although, for any side-project or low-cost freelance gigs, I cannot expect that I'll always have the option of recommending Acquia Cloud, and that's okay. While I am at work and trying to help our team gain more exposure to my companies' extensive list of clients, when we have the fortune of adding another Drupal-based client to our roster, getting those clients on Acquia Cloud makes every other aspect of building or modifying their school website that much easier

The team is always there to support any issue. We had an issue around adding more code into the system and they supported us all the way through.

Alternatives Considered

Acquia Digital Experience Platform

Acquia has a much easier path for procurement through the GSA contract. Pantheon didn't have an avenue to purchase through the GSA, which severely limited our ability to procure their product. Pantheon has a few extra features which Acquia has yet to develop like true multi-dev, allowing users to test out their changes on their own servers in the cloud. This is incredibly useful since windows Drupal development is typically very slow, even with the Acquia Dev Desktop software.

Scalability

We do not use any of the proprietary features from Acquia [Digital Experience Platform], like Site Factory, that enable this. (I am allergic to proprietary.) But Drupal is inherently scaleable via multisite, and things like Single Sign On via contrib modules.

Return on Investment

Acquia Digital Experience Platform

  • More time focused on enhancing the EX and UI - less time on security/patching.
  • A Technical Account Manager (TAM) has proved invaluable when dealing with support and feature [inquiries] on the platform. On hand guidance has saved us lots of time in not having to chase inquiries up.
  • Having open comms with our account manager has enabled us to continue investigating other feature sets within the Acquia portfolio (Personalization, DAM).
