Acquia

How much money do you have, and how much support do you need?Those are the biggest questions that you need to ask yourself when determining if you want to procure Acquia services. The cost for us was low compared to paying our own employees to run the type of system provided to us by Acquia. But the cost would be much higher for non-enterprise customers who are just looking to have their sites hosted for them. In the end, you get what you pay for - world-class Drupal hosting backed by highly effective customer support.

Salesforce App Cloud

The Salesforce App is ideal for tracking status of opportunities, being able to access already entered contacts and their relevant information, keeping track of conversations and details for a refresher as well as mapping information. Due to the nature of sales and the many meetings to keep track of, I was entering "notes" from my meetings upon returning to my vehicle before heading to the next appointment, which was of extreme value. It allowed my to clear my thoughts before my next meeting.It is less appropriate for entering accounts, contacts and so forth. This is all easier executed with a regular computer in my experience.

Acquia makes Drupal better and contributes significantly to the development of the project. The people are great and we are happy to be a partner

Alternatives Considered

  1. Setting up a local development environment with Drupal is easy and cheap
  2. Setting up an efficient development/deployment process is easy.
  3. Theming SharePoint is extremely difficult.
  4. Many SharePoint modules (aka webparts) are quirky and don't work as expected.
  5. Lists and libraries are quirky and also often do not work as expected.
  6. SharePoint is slow and does not give you real access to the database that powers it.

We haven't used anything exactly like Salesforce App Cloud, but in the end we decided to use our own development environment/process and deploy via Heroku. Therefore, I can't speak to how App Cloud compares to other more integrated solutions, but for our needs it was easier to use a less integrated solution.
