Acquia acquires Cohesion, enables the creation of Drupal websites


Digital experience company Acquia is acquiring Cohesion, creator of DX8, a Drupal website builder. With this acquisition, content marketers and site builders with minimal coding skills can create Drupal websites.

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.

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.

“Businesses need to launch, manage, and update their websites quicker and more efficiently than ever before,'' said Dries Buytaert, Acquia co-founder, CTO, and chairman. “This acquisition allows Acquia to continue simplifying the way organizations of all sizes build, style, and design websites. Using Cohesion DX8 will be a complete game-changer for many; it will enable organizations to launch Drupal websites much faster, while still offering unprecedented creative freedom, brand consistency, and governance for digital marketers and content authors.”

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 help large multi-brand organizations with dozens or hundreds of Drupal websites, providing brand consistency across all websites while empowering regional creativity.
