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.

Exponea

Some scenarios where Exponea is well suited are understanding customer actions & decisions on front-end events. Aggregating data and creating segments for scenarios or campaigns. Automating and transforming data. Keeping everything critical in a single source of truth. Exponea's campaign and scenario builder is unmatched. Building out emails and laying out segmented scenario flows is powerful way we engage our audience.

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.

  • The most valuable benefit is the amount of independence that Exponea has created for marketing teams, not having to rely on IT to deploy.
  • We can create and activate all marketing activities, such as banners or emails, test and evaluate their success.
  • Ability to monitor performance of real-time data and swiftly react with banner variants, change CTA texts or other retention and reactivation methods.
  • It’s simple to use and requires only a graphic designer and marketer to have a wide impact.
  • With extensive analytics, we have the ability to A/B test results, reach, and other performance metrics of each individual activity in real-time.

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

Exponea

  • Exponea is not good for surveys. You don't get automatic dashboards as in the case of Typeform or Survey Monkey.
  • Working with aggregates and running aggregates can be complex and confusing.
  • Web layers are complex. Designing is an easy part but deployment on the website requires knowledge of JS.

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

It's very easy to use. The split on projects and actions in menu is intuitive and no one should have a problem to find what he wants. The reports graphics could be more appealing but they are easy to read. I also like the yellow colours as when you have so many tabs and windows open it stands out of the crowd.

i love their support as they are very friendly and very helpful in either product discovery or bug fixing or finding the workaround or anything else. Of course it is way better to get dedicated tech consulting especially at the early stages when you integrate the platform as it may be tricky in terms of integrating SDK Exponea for web tracking and iOS. However, even first-line support can cover up like 80% of the issues. Their documentation is precise and easy to read, albeit sometimes it could be way better off if it contained more examples.

Alternatives Considered

Acquia Digital Experience Platform

If you're project requires a multisite architecture with scalable site deployment, and your budget allows, I would recommend Acquia. Acquia pricing sits more on an Enterprise level, so it is overwhelming if you're hosting a smaller site. Pantheon is much more suited for smaller, one-off, independent sites, and they provide similar tooling, availability, and free SSL with every site. If you need to control every aspect of your server environment and you have a server admin on staff, then Rackspace can provide you with an open hosting environment for you to configure yourself.

Exponea provides one solution for web and app analytics and allows to execute immediate campaings based on insights you reveal. No other tools has this out of the box integration of analytics and campaings.

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
