HAMBURG, Germany and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- CoreMedia, a leading Web Content Management (WCM) company, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries Quadrant of Gartner's 2010 Web Content Management Magic Quadrant(i).

CoreMedia believes its positioning by Gartner as a Visionary reflects the company's clarity of vision, its increased penetration across multiple market sectors and geographies, and the strength of features such as CoreMedia V's Content Application Engine that allows customers to manage and deliver content to increasingly complex online environments.

In the year since the last publication of Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management, CoreMedia has launched CoreMedia V - a major release of its CoreMedia CMS platform, helped boost portal adoption and productivity with the announcement of CoreMedia CMS for SAP NetWeaver Portal, and extended its global operations in the North American market. In addition, the company has expanded its development focus in the key areas of multi-touchpoint support, personalization and contextualization – all combining to help organizations deliver better customer engagement.

"We consider our positioning in the Visionaries Quadrant by Gartner as recognition of CoreMedia's strategic focus over the last year, and the increasing applicability of our WCM solutions to deliver multi-touchpoint experiences for our clients that engage their customers, build customer loyalty and – ultimately – drive greater revenue and profitability," said Gerrit Kolb, CEO, CoreMedia.

"We plan to accelerate this momentum over the coming year with a number of significant announcements, further growth from our North American operation, as well as an expansion of our partner ecosystem," he continued.
