BURLINGTON, Mass. – October 30, 2014 -- Acquia, the digital experience company, today announced its 22nd consecutive quarter of revenue growth as demand for unified experiences continues to soar among top brands and organizations.
Acquia’s bookings increased 39 percent year-over-year from Q3 2013, as its unified platform for connecting content and commerce into highly personalized experiences was adopted by new customers such as Sun Edison LLC, Post Foods, and Bosch USA.
“We’re helping our customers think ahead in an ever changing world of digital transformation,” said Tom Erickson, Acquia CEO. “In a year that saw us recognized by Gartner as a leader in web content management, we’ve continued to execute on our promise to help the world’s top brands gain agility to deliver personalized experiences to their customers.”
Acquia raised additional funding to accelerate its development of solutions for personalization, commerce, and big data marketing on the world's most resilient open cloud platform. Acquia received funding in the quarter from Amazon.com, Inc., building upon its $50 million financing round from earlier this year, which was led by New Enterprise Associates (NEA).
Acquia signed strategic digital government deals in Q3 with both the Australian Government and the City of Los Angeles. Both will rely on Acquia’s open platform to lower costs and increase efficiency across departments and agencies as they transform how they connect with citizens on the web. Acquia signed new customers last quarter across a variety of industries, including financial services, higher education, and high tech. New customers include Sealed Air Corp., T-Mobile, the University of New Hampshire, Pearson Plc, Greenpeace Germany, and Squaw Valley Resort.
“We’re seeing a dramatic increase in the adoption of the Acquia Platform across global brands that want to be the pacesetters for a digital world,” said Dries Buytaert, co-founder and CTO of Acquia. “We’re seeing transformative applications of our technology that connect buyers and brands, citizens with government services and make people’s lives better.”
