Acquia Announces Acquia Lift for Greater Digital Marketing Success

Advanced Personalization for Drupal-Based Sites Delivers Increased Digital Engagement and Revenue Generation

BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/20/14 -- Acquia, where great digital experiences begin, today announced Acquia Lift, an optimization platform that enables marketing teams to transform the digital experiences they offer customers into engines for revenue generation. Leveraging unique machine learning algorithms that understand user behavior, the personalization platform for Drupal-based sites gives organizations the agility and scalability to create a deeper, more relevant experience for site visitors. This, in turn, enables the marketing team to deliver the right content to the right visitors through the right channel to drive greater conversions and revenue.

Acquia Lift provides powerful optimization tools to get a campaign up and running with a single click, and tests content not only against consumer profiles but also specific consumer attributes. Based on these insights, Acquia Lift then automates the delivery of personalized content to each site visitor, inspiring action such as a new registration, a purchase, or improved engagement on a new mobile site.

"Until now, it's been tough for the millions of Drupal sites to easily incorporate robust personalization capabilities," said Tom Erickson, CEO, Acquia. "Acquia Lift equips the digital marketer with powerful website testing and content targeting tools to optimize content for each visitor. As content, community and commerce converge, digital experiences are becoming more complex. Acquia Lift ensures that each interaction delivers a relevant, high-quality experience customers expect."

Acquia Lift ensures customers' expectations are met during every site visit by giving marketers access to testing, targeting, and analytics capabilities that simplify the delivery of hyper-personal digital experiences. This, in turn, enables the marketing team to know their customers and deliver more of the content types that convert.

"Our artists have extremely dedicated fans who always ask more information. But representing hundreds of musical artists, each with a unique fanbase, prohibits us from manually mining this data to uncover and leverage actionable insights as it relates to user preferences," said Lee Hammond, VP Digital, Interscope Records. "With Acquia Lift's optimization and content targeting capabilities, we can improve our ability to deliver the content these fans look for in a way that makes the most sense for them, while also enabling us to drive greater conversions."

"To succeed in today's digital environment, firms must deliver smarter, more customer-centric interactions that feel like they were tailored for each user and his or her specific set of circumstances. It must be more dynamic and more predictive than current personalization techniques," stated the January 2014 Forrester Research, Inc. report: "Advance to Next-Generation Personalization."

Additional features and benefits of Acquia Lift include:

  • Easy implementation -- Designed to enable anyone within an organization to get testing and targeting functionalities up and running fast on their Drupal-based site.
  • Intuitive -- Enables organizations to easily create, iterate, and optimize content within the same interface, rather than toggling between web content management (WCM) and targeting systems.
  • A/B and Multivariate Testing -- Includes a variety of different testing and targeting options at the site owner's disposal natively within the Drupal interface. These options enable the site owner to do both simple A/B and more complex multi-variate testing and then report back the results.
  • Interoperable -- With Acquia Lift, there's no need to focus on a single stack. The solution integrates easily with third party technologies, letting organizations have the freedom to leverage existing digital marketing tools, and explore emerging high value tools they may consider using in the future.
  • Measurable -- Acquia Lift enables developers to define custom conversion goals for their sites and provides an easy-to-implement Drupal-specific personalization tool that automates the delivery of relevant experiences. Digital marketing teams can also create and track conversion goals, and gain real-time, granular insight into website conversion performance against KPIs.
  • Auditable record of all interactions -- Enables the marketing team to gain insights from explicit information within the site, to anonymous user actions, to third party applications.
  • No "instrumentation" needed -- Acquia Lift does not require developers to "instrument" a website HTML with Javascript tags, reducing the cost and time required while increasing web page load performance.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
