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.

Commonspot is well suited for web content management to be conducted by individuals with low-level web skills.

Cons

Acquia

  • The knowledge base has improved over the years, but its ease of use could be better.
  • The backend tool UI needs a new "coat of paint".
  • Having more site environments to work with would be great.

CommonSpot

  • Commonspot needs to improve on its authoring feature. It is impossible to author on more than one page at a time . (One must always click on "View work on all changes") before switching between pages otherwise, the changes will not be saved.
  • CommonSpot does not support sharing the definition of any custom element or any template layouts. Therefore, one must recreate these in each site.
  • In Commonspot, a user who has to manage content in multiple sites will have to log in to each site to see and act on any actions.

I had no previous background in content management, and found it very easy to use. If I could figure it out, I am pretty certain that just about anyone else could as well.

Alternatives Considered

Acquia

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.

Commonspot works in tandem with Zendesk very well to accomplish tasks an an efficient manner.
