Acquia Launches Open Social Business Software Commons 2.0
Social-as-a-Service is now faster than ever before.
Organizations can now install, configure and launch a Commons community site in the Acquia Cloud in a matter of weeks. Commons can be used out of the box, with simple configuration options to enable companies to engage customers faster than ever before. In addition, our Social Business JumpStart packages and Community Management Strategy offerings guide enterprises through the community development process, ensuring success out of the gate.
Complete control over branded community experiences with more templates, designs and features
Enterprises have the flexibility to free themselves from branding and user experience restrictions imposed by proprietary social business tools. With Commons, enterprises have complete design and theming control over the presentation layer of their community site. Commons 2.0 will ship with multiple enterprise ready themes out-of-the-box, including the new Commons Connect and Commons Environs themes. Organizations can take advantage of pre-built Commons themes or create their own custom branded theme.
“Adoption of social business software in the enterprise is rapidly increasing. Open-source solutions have a place in the conversation about social business applications," states Nikos Drakos, Research Director for Gartner. "They should be considered when flexibility and brand control are key requirements, especially when coupled with commercial support."
Managed Service Options, Pricing and Availability
Customers can choose from a variety of Commons enterprise-class service packages ranging from basic support to a fully managed service, combining Acquia’s world-class Drupal optimized hosting via Acquia Cloud, Acquia’s Network support subscription, and Remote Administration. Commons 2.0 will be available in late July. For pricing information, call +1-978-296-5250 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
