Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

London, 12 August 2009 – Sitecore, the leading provider of .NET Web Content Management System (CMS) software, today announced that the company was evaluated and positioned in the Visionaries quadrant of the recent Gartner report, “Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management.”1 The report evaluated numerous Web content management (WCM) vendors based on a rigorous set of criteria that includes completeness of vision and ability to execute. Among the other criteria used for evaluation were innovation, market understanding, marketing and sales strategy, product strategy, and business model.

According to Gartner, “WCM accounts for more than 25% of the enterprise content management (ECM) market. WCM offers synergies with other ECM components such as digital asset management (DAM), content centric collaboration, records management and document management (DM). WCM is also likely to be part of organizations’ longer-term enterprise information management (EIM) initiatives. WCM goes beyond the literal management of Web content and offers tools that allow a company to manage and make money from its Web presence, especially in areas such as building a customer-centric Web strategy, marketing, e-commerce and the media.”

“We consider our positioning in the Web Content Management quadrant, by Gartner, confirmation of our mission to enable customers to unlock the power of content to improve their Web strategies and overall business performance,” said Michael Seifert, CEO, Sitecore. “With the recent launch of Sitecore Online Marketing Suite we continue to deliver solutions that transform the Web CMS industry and further enhance our market position.”
