Award Program Showcases Outstanding Examples of Digital Experience Delivery. Winners to be Unveiled on October 24.

Srijan, today announced it has been selected as a finalist for the 2018 Acquia Engage Awards in the category Lightning in a Bottle. The Acquia Engage Awards recognize the world-class digital experiences that organizations are building with the Acquia Platform.

More than 100 submissions were received from Acquia customers and partners, from which 43 were selected as finalists. Nominations that demonstrated an advanced level functionality, integration, performance (results and key performance indicators), and overall user experience advanced to the finalist round, where an outside panel of experts will select the winning projects.

Srijan is working with Crain Communications, one of the largest privately owned business media companies, to deliver a unified Drupal 8 platform for its multiple brand sites. As a part of its Component Based Development approach, Srijan leveraged the Acquia Lightning feature to support Crain’s multi-site architecture. Srijan teams also used Acquia Hosting to support the multi-site setup, and Acquia BLT to set up development and deployment pipelines.

With a total of five sites currently live with the new architecture, the project involves another eight sites to follow over the next few months. Both teams are working hard to launch the remaining sites, and the nomination was a welcome news amidst all the work.

Talking about the project, Mark Felton, Sr. Technical Account Manager, Acquia said, “The Srijan team is the perfect complement to Crain’s own engineering team. On this ambitious, wide-ranging replatform project, there was no challenge that Srijan and Crain's could not meet together.”

The results speak to the close collaboration between the Srijan and Crain teams during the course of the project. “We are honored to be among the finalists for the Acquia Engage Awards, alongside Crain Communications. It’s been a challenging project, which gave us the opportunity work with new technologies and deliver a great digital experience with Drupal 8.” said Ashish Goyal, President - USA & Head of Global Sales

The project is a complex one, and leverages the best that Drupal 8 had to offer. Ishan Mahajan, Program Manager, Srijan said, “The Component Based Development approach is a milestone for companies with multi-site architecture, and this nomination comes as a huge boost to the teams at both organizations, who worked hard to make this happen.

Winners will be announced on October 24, 2018, ahead of this year’s Acquia Engage Conference, which will be held in Austin, Texas, from November 7-9, 2018.

“Acquia partners and customers are tackling the biggest challenges facing marketers, developers, and digital teams,” said Joe Wykes, senior vice president, global channels and commerce at Acquia. “This year’s Acquia Engage Award nominees show what’s possible when open technology and boundless ambition come together to create elegant, world-class customer experiences. They’re making every customer interaction more meaningful with powerful, personalized experiences that span the web, mobile devices, voice assistants, and more. Their work is inspiring, and we’re proud to recognize their accomplishments.”

The Acquia Experience Platform offers a suite of technologies for easily building digital experiences at scale, across the web, mobile sites, native applications, voice assistants and more. The platform allows businesses to manage the deployment and iteration of those experiences in the cloud, and intelligently optimize how they are tailored for specific audiences using machine learning.
