Leading Analyst Firm Positions Oracle in Leaders Quadrant for Web Content Management

Redwood Shores, Calif. – Aug. 18, 2009

News Facts

Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management” places Oracle in the Leaders Quadrant.
Gartner’s Magic Quadrants position vendors within a particular quadrant based on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute on that vision.
According to Gartner, vendors in the Leaders Quadrant “can, and should, drive market transformation. Leaders have the highest combined scores for Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. They are doing well and are prepared for the future with a clearly articulated vision. In the context of content management, they have strong channel partners, a presence in multiple regions, consistent financial performance, broad platform support and good customer support. In addition, they dominate in one or more technologies or vertical markets. Leaders are ‘environmentally aware’ of the solution ‘ecosystem’ into which their own offerings need to fit. Leaders can: demonstrate enterprise deployments; offer integration with other business applications and content repositories; incorporate Web 2.0 and XML capabilities; and provide a vertical-process or horizontal-solution focus.”
