Holborn, United Kingdom, July 31, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Sitecore, the global leader in customer experience management, today announced that it has leapt to the highest position in “ability to execute” by Gartner, Inc. in its 2015 “Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management” for the first time ever, above all other WCM vendors.
The evaluation criteria for a vendor’s ability to execute included product/service, overall viability, sales execution/pricing, market responsiveness and track record, marketing execution, customer experience and operations. Criteria for completeness of vision included market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy, product strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy, innovation and geographic strategy. Sitecore lands in the leadership quadrant for the sixth consecutive year.
“Since Sitecore was established, we’ve worked hard to help organisations deliver more personal, quantifiable experiences to their customers,” said Simon Etherington, UK MD, Sitecore. “It’s very rewarding to see this pay off, particularly as we’ve leap-frogged the competition this year and taken pride of place in the ‘leaders’ box ahead of all others.”

The recognition marks a successful year for Sitecore which continues to post double digit growth and to be profitable. Company customers include Dole, Suzuki Motor of America, The Gates Corporation, Rust-Oleum and Baldor Electric Company.
