CMS & Web Experience Management

Acquia showcases Power of Open Source Drupal for Human-Centered DX

Highlights use of the popular content management system (CMS) during DrupalCon

Acquia, the digital experience leader, is proud to be a Diamond sponsor of DrupalCon, taking place in Lille, France, from October 17-20. The event brings together hundreds of Drupal community members and enthusiasts. It offers a wide selection of workshops and sessions designed for developers, content creators, and marketers, as well as individual supporters of Drupal and the Open Web. The non-profit Drupal Association hosts DrupalCon.

The Drupal content management system (CMS) is one of the most widely used open source projects in the world and the foundation of Acquia’s digital experience platform, Acquia Open DXP. With Drupal, digital marketing teams can quickly create digital experiences for websites, commerce sites, mobile applications, digital signage, intranets, headless applications, employee experience applications, portals, and more. Acquia has long been the top corporate contributor to Drupal and the premier provider of hosting solutions and services for Drupal applications.

Dries Buytaert, Creator and Project Lead of the Drupal CMS and Co-founder, Chief Technology Officer, and Chief Strategy Officer at Acquia, will kick off the event with his Driesnote. An anchor of DrupalCon events, the Driesnote provides updates for all attendees on notable project developments and initiatives.

“At DrupalCon Lille, we’re excited to share the latest project initiatives and receive input from the community, including contributors and users,” Buytaert said. “More and more organizations look to Drupal to form the core of digital experience platforms that serve all users — regardless of background, identity, or ability — and protect personal data and public discourse. We’re working with customers, partners, and the Drupal community to unlock the potential of content to craft truly unique, human-centric digital experiences.”

Acquia Migrate: Accelerate Released as Open Source

Supporting migrations from previous versions of the CMS to more modern versions of Drupal is a key area of focus for Acquia. Attendees are invited to visit the Acquia booth to learn about making the move to Drupal 10. To support all Drupal users, Acquia has recently released as open source the Acquia Migrate: Accelerate (AM:A) tool. AM:A is designed to speed migrations from Drupal 7. All are also invited to download for free Acquia’s Ultimate Guide to Drupal 10, which covers version 10.1.
