Nasdaq Selects Drupal 8

Dries Buytaert announced today that Nasdaq Corporate Solutions has selected Drupal 8 and will work with Acquia to create its Investor Relations Website Platform. In the words of Angela Byron, a.k.a "Webchick", "This is a big freakin' deal."

This move means that it won't just be Nasdaq relying on Drupal 8's security and scalability, but Nasdaq-listed companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, etc., will have the opportunity to use the new Drupal 8 Nasdaq Investor Relations platform to power their Investor sites next year, exposing Drupal 8 and its features to new audiences in the financial sector.
