As Drupal 8 Launch Nears, Enterprise Adoption Takes Shape
by David Aponovich
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.

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.
