Overall Satisfaction with Acquia Digital Experience Platform

We are currently using it to provide our corporate website over the internet. It's used mainly by the marketing department, but it's also used to publish and manage different services and aspects for different departments: HR, partners, alliances, etc. Acquia [Digital Experience Platform] helps to manage one (or multiple) websites or applications built on top of Drupal. Acquia [Digital Experience Platform] allows me to have [three] different environments for managing the website: development, staging, and production. This can be helpful for managing a website with particular logic or defined publishing flow.
  • Development, staging, production
  • Built-in GIT flow
  • Drag & drop code deploy
  • Easy-to-use interface
  • Database access
  • Cloud IDE
  • The support
  • Improve Google Core Web vitals
Deploying my website was very quick because the onboarding was great, and the way to deploy a website [was] really easy. This procedure doesn't require any particularly high-level skills (but you should at least know how to manage a website from a hardware standpoint). Fortunately, we've started from an already existing application from Acquia [Digital Experience Platform], so the migration was very easy and quick.
We use Acquia [Digital Experience Platform] mainly for marketing purposes. Other departments are involved with the application at a very low level without any active decision. The scalability of the application depends on how you customize Drupal, your theme, and your modules.
Because we needed to remain on Drupal CMS, the pricing was right related to the service, and the platform had already built-in functionality for daily usage.

Do you think Acquia Digital Experience Platform delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Acquia Digital Experience Platform's feature set?


Did Acquia Digital Experience Platform live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Acquia Digital Experience Platform go as expected?


Would you buy Acquia Digital Experience Platform again?


It's appropriate for a big company that wants to publish its website on the internet, and this website is built on top of Drupal. The publishing flow is great because you can have a preview of the website in the staging or development website before put[ting] it live. It doesn't provide support for other CMS, and this could be a problem. We use other CMS for other purposes that are better than Drupal, and we had to host it elsewhere.
