Acquia Acquires Cohesion to Accelerate the Creation of Digital Experiences

Sep 05, 2019

Digital experience company Acquia announced that it has acquired the UK-based Cohesion, creator of DX8, the first enterprise-grade, low-code Drupal website builder. With this acquisition, content marketers and site builders with minimal coding skills can create Drupal websites up to 4X faster, according to user testing.

Drupal is a powerful and flexible platform for building digital experiences and managing website content. With Cohesion DX8, Acquia continues to invest in technology for creating on-brand Drupal websites. Cohesion DX8 offers the in-browser creation of themes, layouts, and pages to empower designers and marketers to quickly build beautiful new sites.

By bringing Cohesion DX8 into the Acquia product portfolio, customers and partners, as well as digital marketing teams and agencies, can now create scalable websites from scratch on Drupal in a fraction of the time of traditional development. Cohesion DX8 can also uniquely help large multi-brand organizations with dozens or hundreds of Drupal websites, providing brand consistency across all websites while empowering regional creativity. With Cohesion DX8, Acquia is the only Drupal company that lets organizations quickly create and modify sites, layouts, and templates using an intuitive drag-and-drop interface.

Acquia harnesses the power of new innovations to empower the world’s most ambitious brands to create customer moments that matter. Cohesion DX8 shares Acquia’s vision for digital experiences, resulting in best-in-class website editing capabilities and the ultimate productivity kit for Drupal. Through this acquisition, organizations will be able to get the most out of Drupal to build, edit, and optimize sites and respond to client requirements in a leaner way.

Acquia’s acquisition of Cohesion DX8 follows Acquia’s May 2019 acquisition of Mautic, the world’s only open marketing automation, and campaign management platform, which allows Acquia customers to automate, personalize, and measure the entire customer lifecycle.
