Acquia, the digital experience company, announced on September 30th that it was once again positioned by Gartner, Inc in the leaders quadrant of the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management.
Tom Erickson, CEO of Acquia, commented: “We feel Acquia’s recognition as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the third year in a row is a testament to our leadership in cloud-native digital experience platforms. Acquia has demonstrated how the combination of open source and cloud creates a solution with unmatched agility for customers. We are proud that an increasing number of the world’s leading organizations rely on Acquia to power their web and digital experiences.”
According to Gartner, “WCM will no longer be so monolithic. It will become more modular, granular and atomic to facilitate delivery of the ‘best next digital experience.’ Cloud-first strategies will win the day, with cross-channel continuity fueling ongoing customer interaction. Microservices with a high level of interoperability will enable WCM elements to be coupled with different sets of third-party technologies, depending on the requirements of the current phase of the customer's journey.”
“Leaders should drive market transformation,” Gartner states in the report. “Leaders have the highest combined scores for Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. They are doing well and are prepared for the future with a clear vision and a thorough appreciation of the broader context of digital business. They 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 in which their offerings need to fit.”
