As Drupal 8 Launch Nears, Enterprise Adoption Takes Shape

Drupal 8 Release Candidate 1 is out, meaning general availability of Drupal 8 isn’t far behind.

Existing Drupal users are eagerly gearing up to take advantage of the next-generation Drupal platform, of course, but it’s much bigger than that. Enterprises heading toward new web content management and digital experience projects are aligning with D8 – and some are already going live with new projects built on Drupal 8.

Take Manhattan Associates, a B2B software technology provider, whose rollout of a new digital experience this year based on Drupal 8 was the focus of a recent webinar with Acquia and channel partner Mediacurrent. Both were involved in the D8 project.

View the webinar recording here.

The Acquia Developer Center is also running a blog series on the topic, in partnership with Mediacurrent. You can read the first post here: Real World Drupal 8... for Front-End Developers.

Drupal 8’s arrival comes at a time when the web is undergoing a massive re-architecture, driven by a few important events:

· The explosion of mobile devices and applications
· The requirement to deliver personalized experiences to every customer, and
· The need for organizations to embrace digital transformation to remain relevant and competitive.

Drupal 8 is designed to tackle these pressing enterprise challenges and help organizations harness opportunity.

As we approach 2016, organizations really have two choices when it comes to adopting a strong digital stance for their business: make the transformation to prioritize digital experiences and engagement, or get out of the way.

Take a few minutes to watch the webinar, or read the post, to learn how Drupal 8 is helping Manhattan Associates as the foundational element in its digital platform strategy.
