Bang! Acquia to acquire Mautic

BitmotionLeuchtfeuerMarketing AutomationOnline Marketing

This is a real quantum leap for Mautic and its users: Today it was announced that Mautic will be taken over by the well-know Open Source software company Acquia. Here's a first look at the background and implications.

Mautic Software bought by Acquia

For a long time, it was strangely quiet in Mautic Inc's house. Nothing was leaked, though - the rumors were more in the direction of "website relaunch". Now today, on May 8, 2019, the news finally broke: Acquia (the "Inc" behind Drupal) takes over Mautic Inc.

Since Acquia is an excellent Open Source player, this news is widely considered a great signal for Mautic and a great leap for its relevance, future, and accelerated development.

In an interview with Drupal founder Dries Buytaert and Mautic founder DB Hurley as well as the accompanying FAQ on the merger, and especially in the community anouncement on Mautic.org, there are many interesting details. In addition to a clear Open Source commitment and nuggets such as a stronger EU orientation, one fact deserves a particularly positive mention: DB Hurley becomes CTO Acquia Marketing Hub and thus remains part of the Mautic project. Oh, and by the way: The name "Mautic" is there to stay, too.

Congratulations, DB!
