Ektron is Rated Strong Positive in MarketScope for Web Content Management By Leading Analyst Firm
Ektron Inc., a technology and market leader in Web content management software, received the highest rating available in the Web Content Management MarketScope report published by Gartner. The MarketScope report gave the WCM market an overall rating of "Positive", stating that "the WCM market is entering a new phase of its evolution. There is a clearer link between WCM and business success, which is driving both solution selling and innovation."
William Rogers, chief executive officer at Ektron commented, "I believe Gartner's findings directly reflect Ektron's success in providing the world's leading organizations with a superior product offering and affirms our ongoing commitment to support our expanding customer base." Rogers continued, "I feel that the Strong Positive rating not only confirms Ektron's ability to address the rapidly evolving needs in the market place, but is also a testament to the talent and value our employees and our partners bring forth."
Gartner's Web Content Management MarketScope states that a rating of strong positive means, "The vendor dominates the market as a whole, or a market segment, typically with double-digit share. It is a default choice for many buyers' shortlists. Its strategic direction is clear, stable and well-communicated, and it has an unquestioned ability to execute on that vision." A total of 17 companies were evaluated in the 2008 WCM report.
