So what did the Acquians ever do for us? Drupal-Acquia and Gartners Magic Quadrant

Yesterday Acquia announced that "Drupal-Acquia together have been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant of both the 2011 Magic Quadrant for Externally Facing Social Software and the Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace.". This raises Drupal's visibility and acceptance particularly amongst the top 10,000 global businesses.

This recognition has not happened without substantial effort on Acquia's part. Bryan House of Acquia spends considerable time ensuring that analyst firms such as Gartner, Forrester Research and CMS Watch are fully aware of Drupal. Large corporations turn to analysts firms for opinion and risk analysis when considering adopting platforms on large projects.
