Drupal + Mautic = basically an open DXP
The core of a Digital Experience is the content combined with contact data. The combination of Drupal and Mautic is exactly that. It's fundamentally a DXP. With just those two tools, marketers can deliver relevant content across the website and email marketing campaigns. We believe Drupal and Mautic are the perfect starting point for making the best digital experience accessible for smaller and midsized enterprises: a truly open and low entry barrier DXP.
The value of Dropsolid Experience Cloud lies in its cloud platform, which packages all the best practices around Drupal. All while having all the security, scalability, and robustness you need to run Drupal (headless CMS), Mautic (marketing automation), and Apache Unomi (Customer Data Platform) on an enterprise level. Our platform even allows you to run every core component on your own premises or in your own private cloud.
Dropsolid has committed itself to keep its DXP fully open and is also contributing all its patches to the Mautic and Unomi communities as well. Stay tuned for the DXP project on Drupal.org. Here we’ll bring together the glue to build an open source Drupal and Mautic-based DXP. And, of course, you can run a trial on our website and get professional support to help you build your best digital experience for yourself or your customers.
We believe to stay free, sovereignty is key.
As a European (Belgian) company, we’re pioneers in data sovereignty. Unlike American companies, which have been criticized for their data collection & usage practices and cloud lock-ins, Dropsolid prioritizes data privacy, security, and cloud freedom. European governments have taken steps to regulate this, with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) being a prime example. Dropsolid has been at the forefront of implementing GDPR compliance measures, demonstrating its commitment to data sovereignty.
An open DXP allows organizations to stay sovereign and thus free. Most commercial offerings are just offering the CMS part but the data, and in a more advanced stage ML/AI, is all proprietary. Customers are forced into virtual cloud lock-ins. Dropsolid is working on making the data and machine learning sovereign. It will be key to staying free and controlling everything. This also means controlling the price you're being charged, the terms and conditions you must accept and the choice of cloud hosting.
Our ambitions with Dropsolid Experience Cloud
We believe an open DXP like ours will make better and souvereign digital experiences accessible to every midsized organization in Europe. Our growth ambitions are therefore exponential. Open source gives us the right leverage to do this the right way. Dropsolid started with an open vision, and that will remain the driver of our growth. We aim to spread the use of open source-based digital experiences and by doing that, make a positive impact on the world.
By doing it in such a freedom-based way, we’ll help to maintain the broader open web by making it easier for any organization to engage with their audiences on their own terms. Our most open and low entry barrier way will give organizations an opportunity to stay sovereign while still able to access the advanced capabilities required at a reasonable effort.
To realize these great ambitions, we will need an extensive partner network of digital agencies. Every company needs a digital agency to help them build their digital experiences. Be it to assist them with strategic advice, via consultant support, or by tailoring the entire digital ecosystem for them. By using open technologies like Drupal and Mautic, the possible partner ecosystem in Europe is huge. Certainly Drupal has a really high adoption rate in existing digital agencies.
That’s exactly why we believe our DXP can grow and scale faster than any other DXP: we are building on an existing ecosystem with the same open vision in mind.
