Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports help enterprise IT decision-makers identify a short list of vendors for their IT programs.  Ektron was among the 12 vendors that made the Info-Tech list, and was the only vendor to score a perfect 100 in the report's Value Index.  

"Vendors that score high offer more bang-for-the-buck (e.g. features, usability, stability, etc.) than the average vendor," the report notes. The "Innovator" category identifies vendors that have demonstrated innovative product strengths which act as their competitive advantage in appealing to niche segments of the market. 

"Ektron is a strong contender for mid-market .NET shops," said Chris Wynder, Consulting Analyst, Info-Tech Research Group and the report's author. "Any SharePoint heavy organization should test Ektron to expand their website."  The report also gave high marks to Ektron for its analytics integration and Cloud management capabilities. "The focus on easing extensibility with cloud management and content versioning tools is unique in the WEM landscape," Wynder notes.
