Acquia Expands Drupal Service Offerings Through Acquisitions
Acquia, which provides professional services around Drupal, the very popular open source content management system (CMS), has acquired Drupal migration service provider Cyrve and Growing Venture Solutions (GVS), a provider of Drupal security services.
Thanks to what each acquisition brings to the table, Acquia is now able to offer Acquia Migration Services and Acquia Security Services. Both new offerings are also available to Acquia’s channel partner base.
Acquia Migration Services “includes a suite of software tools, modules, best practices and expertise to help organizations migrate content from legacy web content management and social software systems to Drupal,” according to the press release, which also noted the company’s Migration Services team has special experience with moving content from Vignette, Jive Software, WordPress and SharePoint into Drupal.
Meanwhile, Acquia’s Security Service team “performs security audits and works with customers to develop comprehensive security plans to respond to security vulnerabilities as they arise.” It can also work with customers to make sure specific Drupal security needs are met.
I know Drupal has many fans in the channel: When we wrote about Microsoft’s announced support for the platform in January 2011, it was one of the most popular blogs TalkinCloud has ever run. And these acquisitions could translate into enhanced cloud service provider revenue opportunities.
