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.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing is very well suited for situations where an organization wants to manage the customer information that it has gathered and share it all across the entire organization so that it is unified and integrated. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing is less suited to smaller organizations that do not have a need for such a complex marketing platform.

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

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing

  • Creating/Managing marketing lists - specifically copying them (dynamic)
  • The use of "Campaigns" - a campaign to us is not the same as how it is used in MDM
  • No Social marketing dashboard available (looking for something similar to HootSuite where you can post/schedule posts.

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

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.

While the cost was significantly more than other vendors we looked at, the tools are similar to our previous tool so conversion would be (somewhat) easy. We chose it because it directly integrates with Microsoft Dynamics CRM - which we integrated at the same time.

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.

  • It took a few months to get things in order and I believe I could’ve gotten started sooner, but I had to learn about it first
