NEW YORK, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitasLBi, part of the Publicis.Sapient platform and a global technology and marketing agency, has been named as a Leader in Gartner, Inc.'s newly published "Magic Quadrant for Global Digital Agencies" report. The report evaluated 21 digital agencies based on 15 different criteria. This is DigitasLBi's first year in the "Leaders" quadrant, having previously been positioned as a Challenger.
"We believe our inaugural placement in the 'Leaders' quadrant rightly asserts our position as a prominent digital agency. Every day we lead our clients through a complex and ever-evolving marketing environment, helping them decide what do next, across all channels," says Tony Weisman, CEO, DigitasLBi North America.
According to the report, Magic Quadrant Leaders "possess deep, broad capabilities across all competencies — most notably related to strategic services (which include business strategy and digital business transformation skills). Leaders implement comprehensive, effective solutions that leverage sizable investments in creative talent and marketing technology. While Leaders have attributes of fast followers, they invest their own R&D dollars to set market direction. As a result, Leaders are the providers to watch in the ongoing evolution and transformation of marketing in a digital world." The report goes on, saying, "Leaders maintain a viable business, regardless of the global economy. Leaders extend their client relationships far beyond marketing promotions, often appearing on competitive bids outside their primary sector (for example, management consulting, production ideation and product development RFQs). Leaders help their clients develop digital marketing platforms designed for systemic growth and scale; they do so by harnessing their own significant expertise, implementing digital marketing programs driven by data and analytics."
In addition to DigitasLBi, two other sister agencies within Publicis.Sapient – SapientNitro and Razorfish – also placed in the Leaders Quadrant of the Gartner Global Digital Agency Magic Quadrant. We believe this further demonstrates the overall strength of the Publicis.Sapient platform in helping clients transform in a digitally disrupted environment.
