Research analysts evaluated Episerver on ability to execute and completeness of vision
LONDON, UK – 6 August 2018 – Episerver, the company transforming digital experiences, today announced its position in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner’s 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management” for the fourth year in a row.
Gartner analysed Episerver among 18 total vendors of web content management tools and evaluated each based-on completeness of vision and ability to execute. According to Gartner, Leaders “execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow.” Episerver believes it continues to anticipate leading-edge organisations’ requirements for cloud capabilities while consistently exceeding the requirements of leading-edge customers. The company credits its investments in experience management capabilities for its ability to distinguish itself in both digital commerce and content management solutions.
“Episerver’s super productive and efficient content management system enables our customers to deliver the type of rich and relevant digital experiences they need to effectively engage their customers,” said James Norwood, CMO and EVP, strategy at Episerver. “We believe our continued business ascent and leadership position in this year’s Magic Quadrant, demonstrate our unwavering commitment to this empowerment.
“When we give our customers a highly effective resource for their needs, their growing organisations benefit from rapid time to value. As a result, we see that Episerver customers eagerly share their success stories, which validates our technology and helps us top competitive positioning.”

Episerver has continued to broaden and diversify its Digital Experience Cloud with the launch of several new application services this year.

Rounding out its unified content and commerce platform with the launch of Episerver Insight™, the Episerver Digital Experience Cloud now offers capabilities such as event triggering, AI-based personalisation and customer journey analytics incorporated directly into the typical WCM processes and roles, rather than requiring specialise or dedicated processes and expertise.
