The Canadian market is “opening up” to open source and the cloud, particularly within the high tech, financial services, education, and government verticals. Demand for innovative, open technologies that drive transformational change without breaking the bank is now reaching critical mass. Since Acquia stands behind Drupal and provides an unparalleled level of governance and support, organizations that once hesitated to adopt open source are now taking a deeper look. And they clearly like what they are seeing.
Just this past year, Acquia became the digital platform of choice for Cancer Care Ontario, Cogeco Connexion, Intelex, Northern Health, and Tourisme Montréal, among many others. They join key Canadian accounts D + H, Enercare, Aéroports de Montréal, Empire Life, City of Ottawa and the City of Hamilton.
Digital today is fundamentally changing the way Canadian organizations interact with their customers and offer their products and services across multiple channels. Leading industry analysts Forrester and Gartner believe Acquia’s utility-based model and open marketing philosophy are arguably the most future-proof on the market.
Tomorrow’s brands need to approach digital innovation with game-changing interactions and new offerings that enable organizations to gain competitive advantage. Organizations looking to transform business models and leapfrog customer engagement have never been greater, which is driving demand for Acquia’s digital experience not only in Canada but worldwide.
“As our brand evolves and our business model expands online, our customers and competition require us to have a platform in place that allows us to build and launch content and campaigns rapidly,” said Melanie St-Jules, director, digital media at Cogeco Connexion. “We’re working with Acquia to accelerate our customer engagement strategy. By standardizing our web experiences on Drupal we’re gaining the power and flexibility to deliver content in an agile and cost-effective fashion.”
