Acquia Positioned in Leaders’ Quadrant for Second Consecutive Year

BOSTON -- August 3, 2015 -- Acquia, the digital experience company, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc in the leaders’ quadrant of the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management1.

“A rapidly growing number of enterprises and midmarket organizations are raising their expectations of the digital channel. They are seeking to connect successfully with target audiences and engage these audiences with highly contextualized, cross-channel experiences,” Gartner states.

“We believe Acquia’s placement in the Magic Quadrant demonstrates that agility and innovation are winning in the web content management market,” said Tom Erickson, CEO of Acquia. “We believe being recognized as a leader by Gartner reflects our rapid growth in enterprise deployments of content, community and commerce applications on the Acquia Platform.”

Organizations rely on the Acquia Platform to build, deliver, and optimize digital experiences. Global organizations across all industries use the scalable, highly secure Acquia Platform to launch and manage one, dozens, or hundreds of sites at breakthrough speed without compromising brand or creating chaos.

According to Gartner, “Leaders should drive market transformation. Leaders have the highest combined scores for ability to execute and completeness of vision. They are doing well and are prepared for the future with a clear vision and a thorough appreciation of the broader context of digital business. Leaders have strong channel partners, a presence in multiple regions, consistent financial performance, broad platform support and good customer support. In addition, they dominate in one or more technologies or vertical markets. Leaders are aware of the ecosystem in which their offerings need to fit. Leaders can: demonstrate enterprise deployments, offer integration with other business applications and content repositories, provide a vertical-process or horizontal-solution focus.”
