Triple Play: Leading Analyst Firm Positions Oracle in Three Key Leaders Quadrants Based on Evaluation of Its Oracle WebCenter Solutions
Gartner, Inc. has named Oracle a Leader in three of its latest Magic Quadrants, including “Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management,” “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management,” and “Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals.”
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant reports position vendors within a particular quadrant based on both their completeness of vision and their ability to execute. Oracle is the only company named a Leader in all three categories.
“Increasingly, online channels serve as the central point of customer engagement and experience,” says Scott Howley, vice president, Oracle WebCenter. “We believe the latest Gartner Magic Quadrants not only point to the strength of individual Oracle WebCenter solutions in this area, but also to a vision for powering exceptional experiences through one, integrated engagement platform.”
Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management
“Three trends have altered the Web content management (WCM) market since 2011: social media, mobile computing, and the inclusion of WCM in more-comprehensive solutions oriented toward online channel optimization. Buyers are looking for different capabilities and are changing how they buy WCM products,” write the authors of Gartner's “Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management.”
The authors continued, “Leaders 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 clear vision and a thorough appreciation of the broader context of online channel optimization (OCO). 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 aware of the ecosystem in which their offerings need to fit. Leaders can demonstrate enterprise deployments, offer integration with other business applications and content repositories, and provide a vertical-process or horizontal-solution focus.”
Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management
“Uptake of enterprise content management (ECM) offerings remains strong as organizations harness content to drive key business applications. Process-centric solutions, social content management, and integration are factors differentiating the 22 vendors assessed here. Global adoption of ECM continues to rise,” write the authors of Gartner's “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management.”
The authors continue: “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 ECM, they have strong channel partners, presence in multiple regions, consistent financial performance, broad platform support and good customer support. In addition, they dominate in one or more technology or vertical market. Leaders deliver a suite that addresses market demand for direct delivery of the majority of core components, though these are not necessarily owned by them, tightly integrated, unique, or best-of-breed in each area. We place more emphasis this year on demonstrated enterprise deployments, integration with other business applications and content repositories, incorporation of Web 2.0 and XML capabilities, and vertical-process and horizontal-solution focus. Leaders should drive market transformation. There are six Leaders in this year's Magic Quadrant.”
Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals
“Despite a decade-long maturation process, the portal sector continues to evolve. Ongoing changes include lean portals; user experience platforms; social, mobile, and cloud capabilities; plus some crossover of vendors from the content management sector,” write the authors of Gartner's “Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals.”
The authors continue, “The Leaders in this Magic Quadrant have a full range of capabilities to support a variety of portal deployment scenarios, and have demonstrated consistent product delivery in meeting customer needs for a substantial period of time. Leaders have delivered significant product innovation over the course of their pursuit of portal customers, and have been successful in selling to new customers across industries.”
