In 2020, we launched a project to redesign and rebuild Acquia.com to optimize the experience, both for users coming to research our products and for our developers, marketers and other business users who work together to create content and build experiences on the site. Key to this was an upgrade to Drupal 9 to allow us to get the most out of Drupal and modernize the overall look and feel, as well as a re-architecting of our content model to a component-based approach with Site Studio.

  • Key project milestones and methods
