Acquia DXP is well suited in projects that the website, or websites, are key to the business revenue. The DXP platform helps business to know their customer and create tailor made campaigns leading to a better user retention, conversion rate and more. On websites that don't have this purpose, the Acquia Cloud Platform hosting plans are a better fit.

OpenText TeamSite is well-suited to large, enterprise-wide implementations where customization, content governance, and dynamic content distribution is needed or prioritized. It is probably not ideal for smaller sites with simple architecture and few resources to manage custom implementation.
Read full review Pros Acquia keeps the site up and available. I don't think we've had a second of downtime caused by Acquia. Their administration UI makes it pretty easy to manage the websites at a high level. Check stats, change key configuration values, backup code and databases, manage SSL, create support tickets and manage development teams (users). Their support team can do performance reviews of your website and give you tips for improving performance. Read full review The drag and drop forms feature makes publishing simple and quick. Preview of customer data before sending publications helps us to deliver personalized experiences. Read full review Cons the support portal can be hit and miss. sometimes there are very helpful people who get back to you in a timely manner, but more often there's a lot of lag time for the ticket to get picked up and in between responses, which can also be less than helpful. it seems like the different departments within acquia (support, management, build teams) don't communicate with each other. because features are so dense and granular, sometimes the workflow or how they are connected can be really complex to access. Read full review I have recommendation for improvements. It is easy to work with all the features. All necessary content management tools are included. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We're moving away from Drupal as a platform. Drupal 8 and 9 were simply too overburdened and difficult to maintain compared to other offerings. PHP seems like a dying language so we are currently in the process of migrating all of our Drupal 7 functionality and custom modules to a Python/Django/Wagtail platform. This doesn't mean Acquia isn't a great service, they are professional and top-knotch, but the only way we'd say with them is if I didn't complete the migration.

Overall, it's a solid package with the potential to offer much functionality with appropriate resources applied. There are a few issues with the authoring interface that OpenText should address before its a top shelf authoring experience.

Every time we have had an issue, Acquia support has responded promptly and worked with us as a team to solve the problem. The Acquia support team is global and we have literally had interactions with all of their support offices, yet the experience has been the same - top notch

Our technical resources engage with OpenText TeamSite so I don't have direct experience. However, critical issues that we need help with seem to get the attention they deserve without issue. However, training and user resources for business owner roles are a bit lacking and some annoying issues with the authoring interface should be addressed sooner.

It was implemented when I got there. I don't know how it was prior.

We chose Acquia for a much better UI that gave non-analytical marketers and easy to use tool where they could create their own reports. The campaign side of things also had an easier to use UI as well, that made the targeting of audiences much easier.

The customization options available in Site Studio are extensive and user-friendly, which makes it easy for business users to make layout and content changes without requiring the help of developers. For instance, users can modify the website's layout, color scheme, and typography using a drag-and-drop interface. They can also add or remove components, such as images, videos, and forms, with ease. The ability to make these changes without relying on developers means that businesses can make updates to their websites quickly and efficiently. This can be particularly useful for businesses that need to respond rapidly to changing market conditions or customer demands. By using Site Studio, businesses can ensure that their websites remain up-to-date and relevant, which can help to attract and retain customers over time.
