Today, Acquia announced a partnership with BigCommerce, a leading cloud commerce platform. BigCommerce recently launched a headless commerce solution called BigCommerce Commerce-as-a-Service to complement its "traditional" commerce solutions. Acquia's partnership with BigCommerce will center around this Commerce-as-a-Service solution to enable customers to take advantage of headless commerce architectures, while leveraging Drupal and Acquia to power content-rich shopping experiences.
With BigCommerce and Acquia, brands can use a commerce-as-a-service approach to quickly build an online store and oversee product management and transactional data. The front-end of the commerce experience will be powered by Drupal, built and managed using the Acquia Platform, and personalized with Acquia Lift.
This month, Acquia has been focused on expanding our partnerships with headless commerce vendors. This announcement comes on the heels of our partnership with Elastic Path. Our partnership with BigCommerce not only reinforces our belief in headless commerce, but also our commitment to a best-of-breed commerce strategy that puts the needs of our customers first.
