Commerce Guys and Drupal Connect form Strategic Partnership around Drupal Commerce and Platform.sh Hosting
Thursday, January 15, 2015 -- For Immediate Release
Commerce Guys and Drupal Connect announce a strategic relationship to win, develop, deliver and host enterprise-class websites for their clients. The partnership includes joint sales and development, leveraging the respective strengths of each team for optimal efficiency and cost effectiveness.
Both longtime leaders in the Drupal space, the companies are combining efforts in response to growing customer demand for content-driven commerce sites. This trend extends beyond traditional eCommerce players to a wide variety of nontraditional commerce sites requiring transactions such as digital downloads, reservations, private content and fine payments. The combination of Drupal and Drupal Commerce software is highly suited to these types of needs for sites of all sizes.
Adding to the value proposition provided by the joint services is Platform.sh, the new cloud hosting service for PHP applications, designed for Continuous Development and Continuous Delivery. Platform.sh is a fully automated Git-driven web application hosting PaaS that manages not only the entire production infrastructure, but also any number of development and staging environments. It extends a branch-merge workflow to infrastructure so that every branch can be tested as if it were in production, and scales for the largest sites. Using Platform.sh increases development velocity and virtually eliminates DevOps. Learn more at Platform.sh.
Drupal Connect has adopted Platform.sh for all of its internal projects, and is recommending it as the preferred solution to all of its clients.
"This partnership will create a Drupal powerhouse and definitive leader in the Drupal eCommerce space," said John Florez, CEO, Drupal Connect.
“We are very focused on bringing exceptional value to our customers through the powerful combination of Drupal, Drupal Commerce, and Platform.sh, and very excited to be working in such a strategic way with Drupal Connect to promote Drupal Commerce and Platform.sh and deliver it together.” said Scott Dahlgren, Managing Director of US Operations for Commerce Guys. “For existing Drupal users, Drupal Commerce provides a very powerful commerce solution embedded in Drupal, providing unparalleled content and commerce functionality in a seamless solution.”
