Ever wonder how your peers are building exceptional digital experiences, what's moving the needle with their customers, what their business motivations are for implementing change, and the strategy they employ that brings those ideas to life? We were pretty curious too, so we rounded up an outstanding group of forward thinking Acquia customers to tell their stories of embracing change and the digital evolution. Our customers do amazing things, and we think there’s a lesson to be learned from each of them. So let’s listen to their stories, and steal the best ones.

Discover how they built it with Acquia and Drupal 8 technology. Technical peers share best practices and the secrets to how they did it using Acquia products and Drupal 8.

Learn how others have successfully harnessed people and processes to drive success with digital initiatives. Get more done - more easily, with less friction - by learning from peers about overcoming challenges related to people, process, governance, and organizational alignment, and how to tear down the common barriers that exist at every organization.
