With a finite capability to meet the demands of today’s “I want it now” consumers, retailers need to consider what matters most - is it speed, convenience or free delivery?
Episerver (the only platform that puts digital content, commerce and marketing together in one screen) recently announced its position in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner’s 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management” for the fourth year in a row.
Episerver were among 18 other vendors within the content management space and were evaluated based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision.
According to Gartner, Leaders “execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow.” Episerver believes it continues to anticipate leading-edge organisations’ requirements for cloud capabilities while consistently exceeding the requirements of their leading-edge customers. The company credits its investments in experience management capabilities for its ability to distinguish itself in both digital commerce and content management solutions.
“Episerver’s super productive and efficient content management system enables our customers to deliver the type of rich and relevant digital experiences they need to effectively engage their customers,” said James Norwood, CMO and EVP, strategy at Episerver. “We believe our continued business ascent and leadership position in this year’s Magic Quadrant, demonstrate our unwavering commitment to this empowerment.
“When we give our customers a highly effective resource for their needs, their growing organisations benefit from rapid time to value. As a result, we see that Episerver customers eagerly share their success stories, which validates our technology and helps us top competitive positioning.”

Episerver has continued to broaden and diversify its Digital Experience Cloud with the launch of several new application services this year. In February 2018, the company announced a new headless API layer, which offers a hybrid architecture to make it easier for organisations to deliver content and digital experiences beyond their websites. With the launch of Episerver Advance TM the following month, organisations can now automatically deliver individualised content to visitors everywhere they digitally engage through the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Rounding out its unified content and commerce platform with the launch of Episerver Insight TM, the Episerver Digital Experience Cloud now offers capabilities such as event triggering, AI-based personalisation and customer journey analytics incorporated directly into the typical WCM processes and roles, rather than requiring specialist or dedicated processes and expertise.
