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.

  • User Interface was good but heavy, with Java powering the backbone I recall finding this somewhat troublesome at the time.

Drupal is designed to grow with our changing needs and technology trends. Our hope is that as new features are needed, we'll be able to adapt as we grow

I don't work with Squiz any more so it's difficult to say, that said, the site is still running on the same CMS so obviously it's still considered a great platform

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.

Return on Investment

  • Increases security
  • Quickly revert changes in an emergency

  • Having a single powerful CMS platform that would integrate a number of organisations that had recently merged - Squiz was a big part of bringing our web architecture together gracefully.
  • Increased employee efficiency
