SQLI, ACQUIA Gold partner
Named ‘Acquia Preferred Partner’ in 2019 and Gold Partner in 2020, SQLI has worked with Acquia to create and deploy solutions for major companies in the BtoB and BtoC sectors.

Why choose Acquia?
Acquia is based on the Drupal solution, one of the world’s most popular Enterprise Content Management Systems, with a community of more than 35,000 developers. Gartner named Acquia a Leader in the 2021 Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms (DXP), thanks to its ability to execute and completeness of vision.
Through Drupal Cloud, Acquia offers various products that enable developers and marketers to create an engaging, unified user experience in all channels, using intuitive and effective tools.
Thanks to Acquia Site Studio, for example, marketing professionals can create web pages totally independently, using a Design System approach that provides them with all components (for graphics in particular).
Cloud ICE provides developers with an open, flexible and packaged workstation, enabling them to code much faster, simply using a web browser.
Companies that have a complex and disparate web constellation can use Site Factory to centrally manage and govern their various websites and applications.
With Customer Data Platform, data analysts can access tools that enable them to process customer data from all channels, in order to establish profiles and customer segments. They can therefore design machine learning models that help deploy relevant and targeted marketing actions.
Campaign Studio enables marketers to design multichannel campaigns combining both offline (emails, SMS, notifications) and online channels.
With the Personalization module, brands can give their users a personalised and relevant experience, based on the stage they are at in the buying journey.
The creation of multichannel customer experiences is not limited to web and mobile touchpoints. It extends to innovative technologies that are now a part of our daily lives, such as voice assistants, chatbots and augmented reality. Acquia Labs’ engineers research solutions and collaborate with companies to create customer journeys that make the difference. The Alexa integration module, for example, enables Drupal to interact with Alexa’s conversational interface, thereby executing requests issued by Amazon Echo users.
