Acquia Named a Strong Performer in Digital Experience Platforms by Independent Research Firm

Acquia Scored Highest in Strategy; Report Cites Acquia Platform’s Emphasis on Integration

BOSTON – October 22, 2015 – Acquia, the digital experience company, today announced that it was named a strong performer in the Forrester Research, Inc. report: “The Forrester Wave™: Digital Experience Platforms Q4 2015.” The Cambridge, MA technology research firm cited the Acquia Platform’s open, cloud-first and integration-centric platform, which is appealing for companies looking to anchor digital experiences with content and community, but extend it out to commerce and service through integration.[1]

Forrester Research reports that “Today, the proliferation of customer touchpoints, applications, and digital interactions demands a new technology architecture. We call this architecture a digital experience platform. For most large organizations, digital experience platforms include web and mobile touchpoints today, though advanced firms are expanding their digital presence, with retailers implementing digital walls or manufacturers empowering customers with mobile apps.”[1]

According to Forrester, Acquia received the highest strategy score among all vendors.[1]

“With so many solutions on the market, it can be hard for even the most savvy digital leaders to identify the best solution amidst the noise,” said Tom Erickson, CEO of Acquia. “This report is important because we feel it gets to the heart of the matter and clearly identifies, as Forrester says, ‘the technology designed to win, serve, and retain customers.’[1] We at Acquia strive each day to do just that, and are proud to be included in this report. With Acquia Platform, our customers can trust in an agile, resilient, and open platform that truly helps them rewrite the rules of digital experience delivery.”
