Acquia, a US-based open source digital experience company, has announced the opening of an office in Pune, expanding its presence in the Asia-Pacific region. Taking this next step in its global growth strategy, Acquia looks to bolster its partner network and expand its global customer footprint.

The company said in a statement that it plans to grow its staff across multiple departments in Pune, further establishing India as a global delivery centre for customer success and product development. At the same time, this move positions Pune to become a part of one of the fastest growing digital experience centres globally.

“With a world-class cross-functional team-based in Pune, Acquia becomes the technology partner of choice for numerous local and global brands and government entities looking to gain the advantage of cloud and open source technologies to power their digital transformation journey,” said Sashikant Mohanty, Acquia GM, India said in the statement.

India is a strategic part of Acquia’s business strategy, and a destination for the region’s top technology and engineering talent.”

Digital experience

Driven by global demand for its open source digital experience solutions, Acquia has surpassed $200 million in revenue. It delivers digital experience needs for thousands of global brands, including AMD, Panasonic, Nestlé Purina, Saïd Business School, Tetley Tea and Warner Music Group.

Acquia continues to make strategic investments to grow the capabilities of the Acquia Experience Platform.

Recently, it announced acquisition of Mautic, creator of the world’s only open marketing automation and campaign management platform. Together, Acquia and Mautic form the only open alternative to expensive, closed, stagnant marketing clouds, expanding Acquia’s vision to offer the industry’s first Open Digital Experience Platform. The company recently released the new Acquia Lift, a personalisation tool on Drupal, now available as a no-code application that reduces time to value for marketers by delivering optimised customer experiences.
