Sitecore Positioned as a Leader in 2011 Magic Quadrant for Web Content ManagementLeadership Position Underscores Sitecore's Strategy to Intelligently Guide Customer Conversations Across All Interactions and Communications Channels (November 17, 2011)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/17/11 -- Sitecore today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders quadrant of its recent 2011 report, "Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management."
Gartner defines vendors in the Leaders quadrant as companies that drive market transformation, have the highest combined scores for ability to execute and completeness of vision and are prepared for the future with a clear vision. Furthermore, Leaders have strong channel partners, a presence in multiple regions, consistent financial performance, broad platform support and good customer support. In addition, they dominate in one or more technologies or vertical markets. Leaders are aware of the ecosystem into which their own offerings need to fit.
"As Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, Inc., once said 'innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower,' and this rings true for Sitecore and we believe our leadership position in the Magic Quadrant confirms it," said Michael Seifert, CEO, Sitecore. "The past year has been a year of innovation for Sitecore, our partners and customers. We are redefining how organizations use Web technologies to interact and engage with audiences. As the industry continues to evolve with new entrants and technology integration, we are continuing to lead in a market that will exceed the success of the ERP and CRM industries."
Sitecore's Customer Engagement Platform, which combines Sitecore's award-winning Web Content Management System with its Digital Marketing System, creates a cross-channel engagement management platform to manage the full customer experience and to create relevant and valuable customer conversations that engage, entertain, and inform.
