Overall Satisfaction with Acquia Digital Experience Platform

Acquia Cloud Platform helps us to quickly deliver new websites as well as maintain them with ease of use. Operations are easy to grasp as all the administration and operational tasks are "one-click" away. Finally, security is natively embedded in the platform which is a key asset that contributed strongly to the decision process.
  • Security & patch management.
  • Rapid setup of new sites.
  • Drupal compatibility for rich content management.
  • Quick DevOps tasks.
  • For site studio: being able to combine pixel-perfectness with ease-of-use.
  • Data-driven digital workflows with low-code and BPMN compatibility.
  • Ease of integration with other DevOps tools.
  • Quick delivery of websites down from 2 months to 2 weeks.
  • Create more personalized user experiences.
  • Ease of contribution.
  • Content pre-visualization before publishing.
Starting from zero, the development of new websites now takes place within 2 to 4 weeks for a standard site (2 months at minimum before). Training of business stakeholders was very fast and easy and they can be very quickly autonomous in the management of their assets, including mobile as we had a mobile-first strategy. Another benefit was the capacity to be pixel-perfect with strong UX requirements.
Scalability has to be set within a given existing volume range. Up to now, we haven't consumed all of that capacity which is great. We look forward to being able to have auto-scaling in the near future to optimize the economical value of Acquia Digital Experience Platform.
Acquia Digital Experience Platform is well suited for informational websites and applications and to address our Digital Content strategy. It is a good complement to the Pega Platform which is better suited for transactional websites and applications. Pega and Acquia is a good combination to address both segments (informational and transactional) as they can be woven together.

Well suited for rapid development of applications and sites, ease of maintenance, security enhancements, and ease of patching. Drupal for global enterprise content strategy i.e. industrial robustness. DevOps is there but needs to be easier to integrate with other vendors. In my experience, Acquia Digital Experience Platform doesn't support well data-driven process definition, setup, and management from an application standpoint. In production, we expected the production environment to be separated from the non-production environnement, which was only possible at the logical level and not at the network level.
