Many new clients for Acquia
In recent months, more than 20 Canadian businesses and government entities have entrusted their digital transformation to Acquia. Among them, Agropur, Domtar, Events East, GardaWorld, La Coop Fédérée (LCF), Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ), SSQ, Onex, Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport and Town of Lincoln, are all live or going live shortly on Acquia Cloud.
“Demand for Acquia is fast rising. I am seeing Drupal adoption outstrip other platforms coast-to-coast in Canada; the move from legacy, proprietary systems towards the cloud and open source is a paradigm shift,” said Malik Yacoubi, chief digital officer at Cossette. “I see momentum growing even more now that Acquia is available in Canada.”
Acquia Cloud: Available in Canada
In September Acquia launched in Canada its award-winning Acquia Cloud running on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Acquia Cloud addresses the needs of Canadian organizations for local hosting, and provides Acquia’s cloud solutions and a platform as a service for Drupal and Node.js. By leveraging the AWS region in Montreal, Acquia offers Canadian customers fast, low-latency performance. This investment is a testament to Acquia’s commitment to the Canadian market. With this new region, Acquia Cloud is now available in 12 global regions, powering thousands of organizations.
Acquia is also uncovering strong demand for its recently launched Acquia Journey, DAM and Node JSsolutions, notably in the education, financial services, life sciences and consumer brand markets across Canada. These offerings, building on Acquia’s strong showing in the 2017 Forrester Wave™: Web Content Management Systems and 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management (WCM), make including Acquia in any CMS evaluation a must.
