    Acquia Digital Experience Platform

    Well suited for rapid development of applications and sites, ease of maintenance, security enhancements, and ease of patching. Drupal for global enterprise content strategy i.e. industrial robustness. DevOps is there but needs to be easier to integrate with other vendors. In my experience, Acquia Digital Experience Platform doesn't support well data-driven process definition, setup, and management from an application standpoint. In production, we expected the production environment to be separated from the non-production environnement, which was only possible at the logical level and not at the network level.

    DNN Platform

    DNN [Platform] is great for organizations of any size who wish to have a robust CMS to manage their site. DNN is not ideal for a small site that is better suited to a super easy to user interface such as Wix. DNN [Platform] is plenty strong enough for enterprises and large entities.

    Pros

    Acquia Digital Experience Platform

    • Easy to manage multiple environments and a team of Site Developers and Site Administrators
    • Easy and intuitive to conduct deployments, back-ups, rollbacks of code, databases, and files
    • Useful add-ons such as Solr Search, Security, Site Monitoring, Migration tools, etc.
    • Excellent and responsive support

    DNN Platform

    • Very easy to use CMS - Ease of use is paramount with CMS products to minimise on support calls. Also the template structure of pages ensures that content editors cannot inadvertently corrupt the layout of the page.
    • Powerful application framework - The existence of APIs for all functionality within the CMS provides limitless scope in terms of developing bespoke applications which sit within the CMS.
    • Commercially supported option available - For larger clients, the comfort factor of having a direct line to the developers of the application is a big selling point.

    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.

    DNN Platform

    • Out of the box, it has some modules, but not enough unless you do a paid version.
    • The support is a bit slow.
    • The menuing can be confusing and terms used a bit strange. which makes training difficult.

    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 [Digital Experience Platform]'s offering is much for extendable, flexible, and scalable. The security is far beyond WP and it is much easier to extend than Magento was. Being able to have access to all these tools at an enterprise level, but still have them remain open source is really a huge advantage in my mind.

    My experience with Joomla! was over six years ago so a lot could have changed. However, I prefer DNN over Joomla because DNN offers more modules and a better administration user interface.

    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

    • Acquia has a positive impact on our internal ROI for our own website.
    • Most of our clients also see a positive impact on ROI when using Acquia for their web platform. This does change based on the cost of the Acquia instance.
    • Acquia allows us to save time and money on client projects, allowing us to increase our margins.
    Zach Ettelman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    DNN Platform

    • DNN helps us win bids on projects through the improvements the community has done over the past few years; we were ready to scrap it all together but it has made great strides
    • DNN's community has come back and is actively working to improve and expand the capabilities of the cms
    • on a negative note, the confusion between evoq and dnn has caused us headaches
