Acquia

It is particularly useful for quickly setting up environments that need significant customization and set up for continuous delivery. I would say Acquia is less appropriate for smaller scale sites that wouldn't necessarily need the separated environments.

Umbraco CMS

Umbraco CMS is the perfect tool for a company that is looking to keep their website updated. The simple to use tools and templates means updating and creating new pages is easy. The WYSIWYG editor is a nice feature, however, for accessibility, there should be some more guidance on what is suitable to be used on the CMS.

Pros

  • Great amount of support. We have had problems occur on the site, and the Acquia technicians have us up and running in no time.
  • The hosting service is quick. With access to Varnish and Memcache we have cut down our page load times.
  • Acquia also has great associate services with other companies like New Relic. This is great because we get more than one time of service!

Cons

  • Admin interface could use some work
  • I wish we could host non-Drupal stuff on the cloud
  • Node.js support would be great

  • If you miss an update on the software, issues can happen if you jump to far ahead of where you are
  • Search could be improved on the site

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

Working in the admin panel (adding / reviewing / editing content) is very slow.The public facing site speed is dependent on what the pages are doing and how well the code was written (whether it is optimized for speed).

Online training is often based on older versions of the platform. So, you'll have to fill in the gaps on your own.

Spend the time to wireframe the content structure prior to diving in. This helps speed the process of implementation and it serves as documentation for end users.

Alternatives Considered

We evaluated multiple content management solutions, and Drupal was the best fit for our needs.
Chris Hood profile photo
We previously used WordPress, however this was not easy to use, it was a complicated system and was limited in what we could achieve, there was a big outlay in buying bolts on and ensuring the system was safe. We found we where spammed loads, we tried to make it work however after a year we decided to leave WordPress behind. The company did evaluated Adobe but the dev team decided that Umbraco was the best tool to meet our own needs.
