Every year, Acquia celebrates the most ambitious digital solutions by their customers and partners during the Acquia Engage Awards. We at 1xINTERNET have for a long time enjoyed our partnership with Acquia and we are looking forward to Acquia Engage and the award ceremony on October 26-27, 2021 when Acquia Engage takes place online.
This year's awards are dedicated to all the brands that had to adapt rapidly to a shifting digital landscape and face unprecedented challenges during last year. When the world changed overnight, many opportunities were created in our field and at Acquia Engage the focus will be on these cases. This year new award categories have been added from last year to highlight this important work.
1xINTERNET together with Schwabe are one of the finalists of the 2021 Acquia Engage Awards in the Regional Excellence - EMEA category.
The Schwabe group comprises several different affiliated companies in the pharmaceutical and health industry. Operating in 16 different markets worldwide the company was facing problems managing their online businesses, with maintenance costs going up and increasing complications with security updates. To gain control, the company decided to start developing a multisite solution for future web properties and that’s where 1xINTERNET got involved.
This year, we are in the good company of finalists where 56 projects were selected from more than 110 customer and partner submissions. All finalists are nominations that demonstrate an advanced level of functionality, integration, performance, and overall user experience. An outside panel of experts will select the winning projects.
To read more about our project with Schwabe, take a look at the project's case study here below.
2021 CATEGORIES AND CRITERIA
A panel of distinguished judges composed of digital experience platforms (DXP) and digital marketing experts evaluated submissions based on several criteria: functionality, integration, performance (results and key performance indicators), and overall user experience. All submissions had to represent initiatives, updated features or projects built with Acquia that were completed during 2020 or 2021. Categories are as following, taken from Acquia Engage page
Reimagining Customer Experience: We want to see proof that “if you dream it, you can build it.” How has your team created flexible, open solutions that help your organization reinvent customer experience? We want to celebrate solutions that allow organizations to personalize, engage and connect with customers in new ways.
Best Campaign: Have you launched a great campaign that spoke to your customers and delivered results? Let us know how you organized and executed your campaign. And remember to back up your story with metrics that showcase that success.
Most Impactful Insights: When you drilled down into your customer data, did you find something that made you pivot how your organization does business? Tell us how your customer insights and/or analytics changed the game.
Leader of the Pack: We want to hear from organizations that are setting the bar for digital experiences in their field or industry.
Best Return on Investment: Organizations that have implemented strategies that ensure governance and reduce cost and time-to-market... and have the results to prove it.
Quickest to Launch: Got things up and running at top speed in no time? We want to know how your team expertly leveraged Acquia to bring your solution from vision to fruition, fast.
Open Source Giants: Strongest contribution to the Drupal ecosystem, through Drupal.org or GitHub code contributions, event sponsorship, community mentorship, or technical excellence.
Scale: Scaling to accommodate online growth is tough: today it requires a meaningful change in the delivery model and adoption of new technologies, often in a way that changes the way organizations do business. Show us how you rose to the challenge and delivered amazing solutions at scale.
Building A Better Tomorrow: This award is to applaud organizations that used their platform to make a difference, provide essential resources for their communities or design a new path forward. We want to showcase innovations and quick pivots that created better customer experiences and contributed toward a better society.
Pandemic Problem-Solver: As physical doors closed, digital doors opened. This past year, teams made quick decisions to continue to serve customers even in the face of COVID-19. We want to showcase innovative change, quick pivots and customer experiences that successfully met these new demands.
Best of Both Worlds: We want to recognize organizations making the most of both Marketing Cloud and Drupal Cloud. How are you crafting the best digital experience out there through use of content and customer insights?
Radical Innovator Award: We’re shaking it up this year and recognizing an individual, not just an organization. The Radical Innovator Award will go to an individual who defined their organization’s digital strategy and saw it through to execution and strong results. Their work has made an impact on the way their organization delivers customer experience.
Regional Excellence: This award showcases the work of different regions across the globe.
These are Acquia Engage award 2021 finalists
