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.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan. It must do so by realizing that we now live in a data-driven age, and that technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, the IoT, Cognitive Computing, and Blockchain are only tools. In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
