Gartner (News - Alert), Inc. has positioned Acquia in the "Visionaries" quadrant of both the 2012 "Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management" and the "Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace.”
Acquia provides companies with the open source social publishing system Drupal. The company was co-founded by Drupal's creator and it assists users in looking after their growth. The company’s products, cloud infrastructure and support allow users to use the full power of Drupal and reduce risk.
“Acquia is uniquely positioned as a Visionary in both the Web Content Management and the Social Software for the Workplace Magic Quadrants," said Tom Erickson, CEO of Acquia. "The next generation of Web experience management platforms delivers both content and social capabilities natively, enabling digital marketers to create compelling web and mobile experiences that engage visitors and drive business results. Acquia has established itself as a leader in this converging market by helping organizations achieve their digital marketing objectives.”
Drupal is open source software which is created and developed by a group of more than 630,000 users and developers. The software is distributed under the conditions of the GNU General Public License. According to these conditions, anyone is free to use Drupal by downloading and they can also share it with others. This open development model enables people to continuously act to ensure that Drupal remains an advanced platform and supports the advanced technologies that are available in the Web.
