Acquia gives social publishing platform Drupal an Enterprise boost

by Jason Preston on March 11, 2008

According to George Dearing at InformationWeek, Acquia has raised $7 million to develop and sell a “suite of services it says will make Drupal enterprise-ready.”

In other words, Drupal will be getting the structure and support that many enterprise-level customers like to see.

Dearing is also absolutely right about the existence of social publishing opportunities, and I think he’s also right about the larger shift they indicate.

We’re starting to see more and more clients in the social media space looking to build ambitious and robust community systems on the LAMP stack, and we consistently recommend Drupal for the more expansive projects.

I think Acquia is making a good investment here.

Thanks for the mention Jason..i think you’ll hear much more about social publishing over the next few months. I loved the term the first time I heard it. ;)

Cheers,

@George – of course! I agree, I’m loving the term “social publishing” as well ;)
