Press release from the issuing company

Adobe Positioned Furthest on the Completeness of Vision Axis in the Entire Magic Quadrant

San Jose, Calif. – Adobe today announced it was recognized as a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in the 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management” research report for the eighth consecutive year. Adobe placed furthest to the right on the completeness of vision axis. The report evaluated 18 vendors based on ability to execute and completeness of vision.

“Brands are committed to building exceptional customer experiences. Yet as touchpoints proliferate, many organizations struggle with delivering content that’s customized for each channel,” said Loni Stark, head of Adobe Experience Manager and Adobe Target. “No other company can touch Adobe’s expertise when it comes to connecting data with content. With decades of experience in content and over seven million customer transactions processed every second, Adobe uniquely helps brands rapidly adapt the right content, in the right context, for the right devices at massive scale.”

Gartner defines web content management (WCM) as “the process of controlling content consumed over one or more digital channels through the use of specific management solutions based on a core repository.”

Adobe Experience Manager, part of Adobe Experience Cloud, enables marketers and IT professionals to anticipate and deliver rapidly adaptable content experiences. Its intelligent content management platform, Experience Manager Sites, helps organizations intelligently and securely create and manage content across web, mobile, IoT devices and in-venue screens. Brands can seamlessly connect assets from Adobe Creative Cloud into experiences delivered by Experience Manager. As a cloud service with even greater automation capabilities, Experience Manager empowers marketing and IT to quickly and easily deploy changes and customizations. Adobe Sensei-powered features within Experience Manager help personalize experiences at even greater scale and impact.
