Acquia a Leader (again) in new 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for WCM
by Tom Wentworth
Gartner just released the 2015 version of its Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management. For the second year in a row, Acquia was identified as a Leader.
According to Gartner: “Acquia represents one of the fastest-growing options for WCM among large enterprises.” We’ve now significantly distanced ourselves from the legacy WCM vendors like OpenText, HP, Oracle, SDL, and IBM. And for the second straight year, Acquia was the fastest moving vendor, as we continue to move “up and to the right.”
In my opinion, it’s only a matter of time before Acquia is the dominant leader in the WCM Magic Quadrant, perhaps as soon as next year. Why? Because we’ve got an unfair advantage: Agility. Because Drupal is open-source and built by a massive community of developers, it simply moves faster than proprietary technologies like Adobe and Sitecore. And with the cloud-native Acquia Platform providing the scalability and security needed by large enterprises, it’s an unmatched combination.
Not to mention that Drupal 8, the most important release in the history of web content management, is now available on the Acquia Platform.
It's certainly great to be a Leader and fastest moving vendor for two years in a row, but we're just getting started!
