Acquia Digital Experience Platform

Acquia is well-suited for any Drupal web platform. I think it best plays in the enterprise space, either for B2B or nonprofit/higher ed/government. Acquia is a great solution for smaller web platforms, as well, but the price is typically prohibitive in these scenarios.

Agility CMS

Agility is well suited for companies that want a balance of control and support. For major global site updates, these can be handled by Agility's support team, while minimal changes and updates can be performed autonomously by the company's own staff with ease. For companies that are interested in flexibility to reconstruct site structure or major global facelifts, Agility is less ideal because these changes must be handled and paid for through Agility support.

Pros

Acquia Digital Experience Platform

  • The Acquia Cloud Hosting (enterprise) provides a three-server solution. You have a Development, Staging (or UAT), and Production servers with a clear path of deployment straight up the chain. You may use Acquia's own Cloud Hooks, or their web admin UI interface to deploy to any or all of the servers.
  • Git is one of the foundation services built-in to the management of the website codebase. Allowing a developer, or well-trained end user (university employee) to easily deploy a tag or branch to any one of the servers, makes it very easy for us to offload the server / account management to the school, while we focus on improving their site.
  • Not only does Acquia Cloud provide a multi-datacenter failover disaster recovery solution, but they also maintain a multi-region failover as well, which allows for a fully redundant enviroment to be maintained in two geographic regions. No fear of losing any database changes or form submissions from students.
  • Lastly, the onboarding process is constantly being improved, and as I have been a third-party vendor involved in many of our hosting negotiations, I have seen it firsthand. Each enterprise client is assigned a small team of engineers, technical leads, and a pseudo-project-manager to explain the process in layman's terms to the client (university / college for my example), but they also perform a number of code reviews and best-practice analysis of a site prior to launch.

Cons

Acquia Digital Experience Platform

  • Responses from tickets aren't always from the same person, and can vary in effectiveness of solving your problem
  • While documentation is robust, it can be difficult to find exactly what you need
  • Provided forums are not monitored frequently, and are not as useful as they could be
Eric Steinborn | TrustRadius Reviewer

Agility CMS

  • The filing system and search function are often difficult to navigate. Finding a file that I've uploaded isn't always easy to locate in Agility CMS
  • The WYSIWYG content manager isn't always intuitive. I often have to go directly into HTML editing to resolve line spacing problems

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

Support is always available and responsive when we email, responding right away that they are on the case, even if they are unable to solve the issue right away. Support will usually find the issue of our problem quickly and require minimal hand-holding, direction, or re-explanation from our team. They are knowledgeable about the platform and our instance and are able to run diagnostics with minimal information from us. When issues are resolved they always request confirmation that things are working as expected before closing out our tickets.

Alternatives Considered

Acquia Digital Experience Platform

We decided to switch as Acquia/Drupal looked to have a better library of 'off the shelf' modules that could easily be integrated into the platform. The hosting and CDN options were comparable however I was personally happier with Acquia's close relationship with Cloudflare.

Agility is specialized in the content while the others disperse their attention into many other subjects or fields. Agility can store all your product, attribute and category information and then plug it into your website to automatically updates the front end, whenever you change it at the PIM (you decide how often you want to sync).HubSpot specializes more into marketing and Salesforce is a monster, but only if you can afford it.

The data Acquia collects, and the way it displays it and is able to be imported into other tools is useful beyond just teams working on our main website. Segment data can be collected and imported into other tools to help further break down user metrics based on certain criteria we have deemed important.

Return on Investment

Acquia Digital Experience Platform

  • Our website isn't a revenue generator, so we don't have specific ROI calculations.
  • The new website is helping us move off of a legacy on-prem server environment. The reduction of cost in maintaining those will be beneficial.
  • We have had to invest in some training for our developers to learn Drupal.
Jim MacLeod | TrustRadius Reviewer

Agility CMS

  • It is fairly simple for our employees to make web updates via Agility CMS, and this greatly optimizes our employee efficiency.
  • We are able to load and host company files easily via Agility CMS Media & Documents, which allows minimal, quick content sharing between departments when other file sharing platforms are not available.
  • Automation platforms and tracking code easily integrate with Agility CMS global headers to allow us to seamlessly acquire analytics on our site visits and content access.
