IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Episerver, a global provider of a single platform to smartly manage digital content, commerce, and marketing in the cloud, today announced its ranking as a "Leader" in "The Forrester Wave™: Web Content Management Systems, Q1 2017," released today by Forrester Research, Inc.
For its independent report, Forrester evaluated vendors in the web content management space on criteria including current offering, strategy and market presence, giving Episerver a score of 4 out of 5 for strategy.
"Episerver is solid across core web CMS extensibility and architecture, keeps pace with modern developer expectations, and is pushing ahead in practitioner features like testing and personalization," the report stated. "Episerver has emerged as a well-rounded, mid-sized enterprise solution, especially for those clients with a European focus or early adopters looking to boost their North American expansion."
Episerver is now supported by a network of more than 880 partners who empower more than 8,800 digital leaders in 30 countries, and influences some $18 billion in omnichannel revenues across the globe. The Episerver Digital Experience Cloud™ empowers digital marketers and content professionals to create, manage and personalize digital experiences for their visitors and customers.
"As we continue to scale our Digital Experience Cloud platform and double down on our partner strategy, we are realizing Episerver's future at the forefront of immersive and transformative digital experiences," said Mark Duffell, president and CEO of Episerver. "Our partnerships and investments, especially over the past year, have paved the way for our rise as a leader in the digital experience space and have helped us supercharge one of the most powerful and productive web content management (WCM) tools available on the market today."
According to Duffell, Episerver's ranking in the "The Forrester Wave™: Web Content Management Systems, Q1 2017" reflects its growth, particularly around increased demand for its Microsoft Azure-based PaaS, and expanded product offerings in 2016. Last year, Episerver acquired two cloud companies -- Peerius and Optivo -- and debuted three new products to enhance its vision for autonomous personalization and omnichannel campaign management capabilities. The report notes, "Episerver's vision is heavily intertwined with Azure's cloud platform to support new capabilities such as machine learning."
"Episerver shares our commitment to cloud innovation and collaboration," said Julia White, corporate vice president, Azure and Security Marketing, for Microsoft Corporation. "Episerver's user-friendly content and commerce platform has proven to be a valuable addition to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace since joining last year."
