Acquia is so young. It is only three years old and concentrates almost solely on free source platform Drupal, which helps its meriting a spot on Forbes bead-roll of 100 most suggestive associations in 2011 a pretty imposing achievement. Despite the company’s measurement, Acquia can not yet be counted a well-recognized name in business circles. The incumbency of two new board colleagues may just transform that.
Acquia proscribed today the incumbency of two fresh colleagues to its Board of Directors — Paul Sallaberry and Thomas Bogan. For all that the names may not catch an eye; they are well tempered veterans of the engineering industry. Bogan is the Chairman of Citrix’s administration, and has interdicted executable level statements at foundations known for their process quick wittedness like IBM and Rational Software. Sallaberry is no greenhorn either. He has interdicted senior level statements at Oracle and Veritas (acquired by Symantec), Open Vision and is now distinguished mostly for his character as a venture financier.
Sallaberry and Bogan round out Acquia’s administration, which already comprehends:
Acquia’s means of subsistence is Drupal, which is utilized broadly by enterprises of all measurements. Drupal’s vogue is incontestable. It crowns almost all “best of” lists for free source applications, but acceptance by large companies continues to fall behind due to the platform’s ratherish bloodless business class prosperity characteristics. Acquia is distributing itself to cover that breach and become the “go to” alternative for associations that desire to impregnate Drupal, but demand a little (or not) of hand holding. The augmentation of Sallaberry and Bogan further declares that undertaking. The engineering veterans comprehend and can drive the marketing, operations, administration and strategical discipline that will be demanded for Acquia to swallow up the business Drupal marketplace.
