Acquia has been named a leader of Gartner’s 2015 Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management. This is the second consecutive year Acquia has been positioned in the leaders’ quadrant.

The SaaS provider specialises in enterprise products, services and technical support for open-source web content management platform Drupal.

“A rapidly growing number of enterprises and midmarket organisations are raising their expectations of the digital channel.

“They are seeking to connect successfully with target audiences and engage these audiences with highly contextualised, cross-channel experiences,” Gartner says.

“We believe Acquia’s placement in the Magic Quadrant demonstrates that agility and innovation are winning in the web content management market,” says Tom Erickson, Acquia CEO.

“We believe being recognised as a leader by Gartner reflects our rapid growth in enterprise deployments of content, community and commerce applications on the Acquia Platform," he says.

Organisations rely on the Acquia Platform to build, deliver, and optimise digital experiences.

Global organisations across all industries use the scalable Acquia Platform to launch and manage sites at significant speeds without compromising brand or creating chaos, according to Acquia.

Real-time customer analytics and personalisation help organisations deliver the right experience, at the right time, to the right device, the vendor says.

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.”
