Some very good news for the .NET ecosystem…
Our partner, Sitecore, was named a “leader” in the Forrester Wave for web content management (WCM) systems — alongside only Adobe. (Other strong vendors fell into the strong performers/contenders categories.)
For those of you who are unfamiliar with WCM, Forrester prefaces its report saying, “WCM began life as a simple dynamic web page hosting product, but it has grown over almost two decades to become a multifaceted toolkit for building, managing, delivering, and optimizing digital experiences, the bedrock of your business technology agenda.”
The Forrester Wave is Forrester Research’s evaluation of vendors in a software, hardware or services market, written for the role professionals they serve. Here are some excerpts from the Forrester Reserach report, entitled The Forrester Wave for Web Content Management for Digital Experience (February 2015):
- “Sitecore provides proven WCM built together with everything you need to deliver class-leading experiences – including marketing software, analytics, social media integration, even commerce.”
- “Strategically, [Sitecore’s] suite approach will help customers quickly configure and deploy experiences across most steps of the customer journey.
- “Standout features for this .NET product include content tagging and targeting, customer profiling, multisite delivery and mulitchannel delivery.”
- “Sitecore has a strong product and high growth.”
- “Sitecore’s pricing is also attractive especially when compared to Adobe.”
- “Sitecore’s suite approach will help customers quickly configure and deploy experiences across most steps of the customer journey.”
