NEW YORK, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SapientRazorfish, part of the Publicis.Sapient platform, today announced it has been named a Leader in Gartner's "Magic Quadrant for Global Digital Marketing Agencies.1" This marks the first year SapientRazorfish has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant as a combined entity, and the fifth consecutive year both legacy organizations, SapientNitro and Razorfish, have been named a Leader.
Gartner evaluated 22 digital marketing agencies globally on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. Authored by Jay Wilson, Lizzy Foo Kune and Christopher Ross, the report identifies four quadrants - Leader, Challenger, Visionary and Niche Player. In this year's report, Gartner looked beyond the ability of global digital agencies to meet current market needs, and focused its analytical lens on an agency's ability to drive client growth through its keen interpretation of marketplace trends and deliver transformational technologies or approaches that meet marketers' future needs.
SapientRazorfish has been recognized by Gartner as a Leader for its completeness of vision and ability to execute.
"The increasingly connected consumer is causing organizations to need a new type of partner to help reimagine their businesses with a radical focus on their customer. By bringing together two industry leaders in SapientNitro and Razorfish to form SapientRazorfish, our clients now benefit from a fully integrated set of offerings that can be implemented on an enterprise scale," said Alan Wexler, chief executive officer, SapientRazorfish and Co-CEO of Publicis.Sapient. "We believe that our position as a Leader further validates an already strong foundation built over decades and through an early understanding of the digital evolution's change imperative."
In November of 2016, Publicis Groupe combined its global digital leaders SapientNitro and Razorfish to create SapientRazorfish, a new breed of transformation partner designed to help companies reimagine their business through radical customer-centricity. The new entity offers clients deep expertise in customer intelligence, data, creativity and experience innovation, organizational agility and the ability to drive and implement change. Reaching across the entire enterprise, from CMO to CIO, SapientRazorfish delivers not only exceptional customer experiences, but also efficient, effective and intuitive technologies built on human understanding and insights for clients across all spectrums.
DigitasLBi, also part of the Publicis.Sapient platform, joined SapientRazorfish in the Leaders quadrant for the second consecutive year, which the company believes demonstrates the overall strength and capabilities of Publicis.Sapient in helping clients transform in a digitally disrupted environment.
