Acquia

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.

Agility CMS

Agility is well suited for companies that want a balance of control and support. For major global site updates, these can be handled by Agility's support team, while minimal changes and updates can be performed autonomously by the company's own staff with ease. For companies that are interested in flexibility to reconstruct site structure or major global facelifts, Agility is less ideal because these changes must be handled and paid for through Agility support.

Pros

  • Simplifies installation of Drupal sites with one-click installations.
  • Development, staging, and production environments for a best-practice web development.
  • Access to git repos, databases, and backups that are all managed within the interface.

  • File management within the CMS is extremely helpful as a hosting/uploading tool local to our web pages and content.
  • Ability to clone web page content across mutli-language websites takes only a few clicks, and translation can be performed easily based on default English content.
  • Ability to post shared content and link content to categories for easy organization of content on the web - post once, and serve the content up on the live site in multiple places.

Cons

  • Not much
  • Send us free candy
  • Continue doing what they are doing

  • Simplification of uploading files would be ideal - where all files are located in the Media & Documents section rather than uploaded directly to Shared Content modules. One home for all files helps us keep track of what is uploaded and what is not.
  • Better copy/paste handling of content from external programs (cleaning Word document formatting, etc.), similar to handling by Word Press and other simplified CMS would be helpful.
  • Greater control over global content such as headers/footers, multi-language implementation, etc., would allow our developers more flexibility and reduce our time coordinating with Agility support and using BOH.

Support is always available and responsive when we email, responding right away that they are on the case, even if they are unable to solve the issue right away. Support will usually find the issue of our problem quickly and require minimal hand-holding, direction, or re-explanation from our team. They are knowledgeable about the platform and our instance and are able to run diagnostics with minimal information from us. When issues are resolved they always request confirmation that things are working as expected before closing out our tickets.

Alternatives Considered

Cost - Acquia provides more granular control of the costs.Interface - Acquia interface is a bit cleaner, although Patheon may have a few more features.

Agility offers a balance of simplicity and capability that other platforms don't offer. User-friendly platforms like Word Press do not offer our company the ability to fully customize our site based on our goals, but more adaptable programs like Drupal do not offer the support resources to simplify the structure of our site with pre-existing modules or professional development to meet our needs.

Return on Investment

  • Reduced time managing infrastructure.
Bret Peters profile photo
  • It is fairly simple for our employees to make web updates via Agility CMS, and this greatly optimizes our employee efficiency.
  • We are able to load and host company files easily via Agility CMS Media & Documents, which allows minimal, quick content sharing between departments when other file sharing platforms are not available.
  • Automation platforms and tracking code easily integrate with Agility CMS global headers to allow us to seamlessly acquire analytics on our site visits and content access.
