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.

BloomReach

Well suited for companies with low levels of resources who can dedicate time to business tools to operate them. Or just companies who want tools they don't need to dedicate time and resources to (this is purely for the SEO widgets, no other tools are offered by Bloomreach). The SEO widgets would be less appropriate if you already have related products /searches/terms on your pages as they then might clash.

Cons

  • 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

  • We have occasionally seen old/removed products featured and linked in the Bloomreach widget, whereas you would only want live/active products linked - This led to 404 errors. Albeit this may be an issue in our integration as opposed to the tool - we are unsure.

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 has a much easier path for procurement through the GSA contract. Pantheon didn't have an avenue to purchase through the GSA, which severely limited our ability to procure their product. Pantheon has a few extra features which Acquia has yet to develop like true multi-dev, allowing users to test out their changes on their own servers in the cloud. This is incredibly useful since windows Drupal development is typically very slow, even with the Acquia Dev Desktop software.

Google Analytics and Bloomreach have similarities in terms of discovering how customers shop on our website and looking at the conversation rate, bounce rate, etc. What I like about bloomreach is that it's more connected with our website I can see the data directly on it whenever I turn on the heat map functionally.

Return on Investment

  • Rapid prototyping and feature development is simpler with Drupal and the Acquia platform is simple to extend for experimental sites.
  • By leveraging the enterprise hosting platform, we could focus on the feature development during the initial build out of the site, deferring the hosting complexities to a time when we would have more bandwidth.

  • Helped with an increase in natural traffic, so we could make a saving on paid traffic activity
