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.

My personal use of Dynamic Yield is still quite limited. I have only been working directly with this platform for the last couple of months. In my limited experience, it appears that DY would be a fantastic solution when websites and reporting (i.e. GA integrations have been set up in a 'typical' manner). One of the clients I am presently working with has not followed best practice for many of these things and we are finding that we are struggling with data integrity (around source/location - is skewed due to two international sites each having hard redirects based on location). While I understand that technology platforms are generally built for the majority (customising a site for the few is a costly investment for little return) it would be great if there were some workarounds available for situations that are not-typical

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.

Dynamic Yield

  • Product recommendations are easy to set up, and powerfully personalizable through either hands on refining or automated A/B testing
  • Customer insights are easy to set up and can be applied retroactively to data
  • A/B testing anything from different graphics to copy to page layouts is easy to set up and implement site wide

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

Dynamic Yield

  • Their support team may delay when the issue has some complexity.
  • Some integrations, like the triggered emails, can be more simple.
  • Lack of a report to show the value of the tool. Right now, it requires some work to achieve this.
  • I miss some CDP capabilities to create better segmentation.

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

implementation took a long time but also, DY has really proven that they are transforming and adapting their platform to be more user friendly and the right technology choice for their brand or company

It's a fairly easy program to navigate, but given the depth and scope of capabilities available in the program, it takes a fair bit of time (and handholding—in my experience at least) to fully familiarize and use all that the program offers.

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.

  • Oracle Maxymiser is very clunky and hard to code with. Previewing changes was a challenge and development for fixes were slow
  • Optimizely - Great for coding. Fast and efficient. Everything worked great. They were limited at personalization triggers though and their costs were expensive.
  • Monetate - Evaluated but their UI was hard to use.

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.

Dynamic Yield

  • Most tests have had a positive impact on either revenue or conversion rate - quite often in double digits.
  • Dynamic Yield has also helped us to stop some particular initiatives through direct interaction with the customer base via questionnaires or by a test proving negative quicker than rolling out a permanent feature.
