    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.

    Umbraco CMS

    Umbraco CMS is the perfect tool for a company that is looking to keep their website updated. The simple to use tools and templates means updating and creating new pages is easy. The WYSIWYG editor is a nice feature, however, for accessibility, there should be some more guidance on what is suitable to be used on the CMS.

    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
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Umbraco CMS

    • Quick to learn. For most if cases, developer needs to know Razor coding.
    • Doesn't require back-end programming.
    • Has build in users management (developers, content managers) and members management consoles (users of the site).
    • Clear admin tool (especially in version 7)
    • Fast.
    • Creating code from scratch, so it is easier to create clean code.
    Filip Witkowski | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    Umbraco CMS

    • Speed for older sites - Umbraco content can load slowly if you have thousands of pages of content. Of course, this would not be a problem for simpler websites
    • Complexity - since the product is free out-of-the-box, it will take technical expertise to get Umbraco setup properly

    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

    Working in the admin panel (adding / reviewing / editing content) is very slow.The public facing site speed is dependent on what the pages are doing and how well the code was written (whether it is optimized for speed).

    Online training is often based on older versions of the platform. So, you'll have to fill in the gaps on your own.

    Spend the time to wireframe the content structure prior to diving in. This helps speed the process of implementation and it serves as documentation for end users.

    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.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Umbraco CMS

    Umbraco's templating is far superior than WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, but it's update process is WAY behind those platforms. The release schedule of Umbraco is way to often and most releases are to fix something missed in the previous release and not an improvement or new feature of the CMS

    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.
