Acquia Cloud

Acquia’s software and cloud services are built around Drupal so that large organisations can create their digital experience based on this Open Source CMS.

Acquia is a Digital Experience Platform (DXP) - an integrated set of technologies allowing you to coordinate and manage all communications that your users experience online. It was founded by Dries Buytaert, the inventor of Drupal.

Solutions

Acquia is divided into 2 areas: technical (Drupal Cloud) and marketing (Marketing Cloud). With such a complex offer, you have all the tools you need in one standard, which is crucial for data integration and standards simplicity.

How it all began

It all started in 2000, when Dries Buytaert, a student from the University of Antwerp, put together a small forum site to communicate with his colleagues on a daily basis.

A year later, Dries decided to move his pet project forward, calling it Drupal (“water drop”) while publishing it online as Open Source Software.

In 2007, Dries met Jay Batson and founded a startup called Acquia with $7 million funding. The goal was to build an enterprise-class ecosystem of solutions and support with Drupal at its core. Acquia grew successfully over the years, raising $173.5 million in funding up to 2019.

Acquia in Gartner's Magic Quadrant

In 2020, Gartner named Acquia a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms, joining a club of brands like Adobe, Sitecore, and Oracle which had already spent many years in the leaders’ quadrant.

This puts Acquia high on the list of solutions to be considered by IT and marketing departments in large organisations. Acquia did a great job with acquisitions over the years to reach the status of an enterprise-class Digital Experience Platform.
