Episerver Recognized as a Leader for First Time in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms
Episerver Improves Its Positioning on Ability to Execute Axis Compared to Previous Years
Episerver, the customer-centric digital experience company, is recognised as a leader in the just-published Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms™. This recognition marks Episerver’s first-time placement in the leaders quadrant of this independent analyst report. The news comes on the heels of three major Q4 2019 announcements with the acquisition of personalisation and analytics company Idio, the hiring of CEO Alex Atzberger and the acquisition of B2B commerce company Insite – all capped by the best sales quarter on company record.
The evaluation process preceded Episerver’s most recent acquisitions, which are further augmenting the already-extensive capabilities of Episerver’s ‘Customer-Centric Digital Experience Platform™’ while amplifying Episerver’s voice-of-customer programs and accelerating Episerver’s market awareness. Prior to the acquisitions, Episerver was also named a Leader for the fifth time in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management (July 2019), a Challenger in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce (August 2019) and a Challenger in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Personalisation Engines (July 2019).
According to Episerver, these independent and objective recognitions validate the company’s significant investments in, and laser focus on, the four pillars of delivering customer-centric digital experiences: content, commerce, personalisation and analytics.
“To us, being recognised as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for DXP affirms our ability to deliver seamless experiences across content and commerce and is a strong testament to the great results our customers are seeing every day,” said Alex Atzberger, CEO of Episerver. “Experiences in today’s digital world can no longer compete on looks alone but need substance. Brands need to personalise and make every digital touchpoint relevant to an individual customer. Relevance at scale requires a firm grasp of the customer’s intent, and the ability to act upon this insight via automated recommendations.”
“It is great to see Episerver in a Leader position ahead of our acquisition of Idio and Insite Software, which are significantly enhancing our AI-driven content automation and B2B commerce capabilities. We are ready to go fast and far with our DXP. As we grow, we will remain big enough to serve and small enough to care as we help growing companies improve their top line by delivering relevant digital experiences.”
