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.

  • Flexible navigational structures and design elements such as clam-shell for FAQ sections.
  • Supports responsive design to handle screen sizes from multiple types of devices.
  • Good management of versions for both pages and files/images and good publishing workflow.
  • Good quick image editing capabilities to get the image on the page.

Cons

  • The Acquia Cloud's increasing functionality means increased complexity.
Bret Peters profile photo
  • Titan requires some training and users should have fairly good technology skills. Our organization has moved toward more central editing of web content because distributed staff using Titan struggled too much and so it was easier to have more centralized editing than distributed editing. The problem is that administrative staff didn't have enough technology skills. Titan could improve by having two level of editors... full editors using Titian as it is now and then basic editors that would interact with a page similar to interacting with a Facebook page.
  • Can be slow at times when you want to quickly move between screens in Titan. This may be the result of our specific hardware that Titan is implemented on.
  • Sometimes need to edit HTML directly to fix font/formatting problems.
  • Wish CMS integrated Google Web Analytics to allow viewing of page analytics while editing.
  • Wish CMS provided help during a responsive design migration by inspecting HTML and highlighting elements (such as tables) that require modification.

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

Love the product, great support for new ideas and any troubleshooting that comes up. Constant additional functionality being added to "base" product. Remember when friendly URL's were a common stumbling block with CMS software, Titan was proactive to phase that out even when it required extensive code work.

I give a rating of 9 out of 10 only because sometimes when we call support the problem is fixed for us, but the explanation is vague or none at all. We prefer to know what was done and if possible, if there was something we could have done to prevent needing to call support for it. Not a big deal really.

It was customized to include screen shots of our site and how users can access the content that only pertains to them as well as advanced training sessions for admin duties and everything that goes along with it. Training is in small groups and can be private (your company only) if you like too.

Talk to your project manager for Titan early on in development about minimalizing customizations. It seems obvious, but many times they do what you ask in the respect of "This is how we do it now, make that happen in Titan" vs. think of how Titan can deliver the same results within the confines of the base software. It's not a fault, just human nature.

Alternatives Considered

Acquia offers a more robust product suite than Pantheon. Acquia also offers professional services for another level beyond what Pantheon offers. Acquia pricing is typically more expensive than Pantheon, but the extra cost tends to be worth it, given all the support you receive from Acquia's team.

It worked great that Titan CMS was developed by a local company (we're both in Wisconsin). Not only that, they have user group meetings twice a year which highlights what others are able to accomplish with the same software - immensely helpful. Support calls are handled in a timely manner even when it's an emergency i.e. site unexplainably down. Even after 9 years of use, the software updates always keep it relevant with what us developers are looking for and what is trending

Return on Investment

  • Completely negated any dev time troubleshooting the platform, freeing us up to develop the website.
Andy Thornton profile photo
  • Allowing users to request a quote that goes directly to their choice of dealers has proven to be highly effective in lead conversion.
  • Our Intranet has improved employee efficiency and reduced wasted network space from duplicate copies.
  • Filters have allowed users to quickly find their dispensing, warming or chilling equipment solution, proven with conversions to dealer lookups and quote requests.
