Sitecore come out on top for ‘ability to execute’ in Web Content Management three years running
The Gartner Magic Quadrant 2017 has been released, ranking the most popular enterprise website content management (WCM) systems based on their ‘ability to execute’ and ‘completeness of vision’. Depending where they fall on both scales, vendors end up in one of four quadrants: Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries and Niche Players.
The Leader quadrant represents the vendors who show both exceptional ability to execute and completeness of vision. Only 7 of the 18 vendors evaluated in the report qualify as ‘Leaders’. Sitecore has been placed in the ‘Leader’ quadrant for eight years.
Gartner’s annual report provides valuable insight for enterprise businesses looking to find the right platform for their needs. Gartner handily offers ‘strengths’ and ‘cautions’ for all the vendors listed, to help business make an informed decision.
For a number of years, Sitecore and Adobe have dominated the ‘Leaders’ quadrant. And, for the third year in a row, Sitecore’s been rated as the top WCM system for its ability to execute. While Adobe places top for ‘completeness of vision’.
But what does that mean? Well, Gartner describes ability to execute as the level at which the vendor ‘sells and supports its products and services globally’. And completeness of vision indicates a platform’s future chances of success. The platform you choose comes down to your individual business needs, capabilities and budget.
Here’s why Gartner continues to rank Sitecore and Adobe as key competitors:
