On December 14th, Drupal 10 became generally available.

“We’ve been focused on what we call ambitious websites,” Dries Buytaert, Drupal founder and CTO of Acquia, told VentureBeat. “At the low end of the market, you have technologies like Wix, Squarespace and even WordPress, and we don’t really compete with them, to be honest, as Drupal over the years has continued its evolution toward more enterprise use cases, typically websites that have more complexity.”

“The omnichannel nature of where the world is going is such that we have to publish content, not just the websites, but to any digital channel including mobile, digital kiosks and chatbots.” Buytaert said.

This is a positive move for Drupal and Acquia, I just can’t help but feel like these quotes belong in 2017, not the cusp of 2023.

Trends Shaping MarTech Strategy in 2023

“Skills shortages, cross-functional challenges and an upcoming cookieless world are shaping the future of martech.
