At Maginus, we are delighted that our three core Ecommerce solutions have been highly acclaimed in the 2017 Forrester Wave report.

A new report by Forrester identifies 11 B2B Ecommerce providers as being the most significant B2B commerce suite providers. All vendors were evaluated against a range of business and technology criteria. The reports intention is to demonstrate how each of the 11 vendors measures up-helping businesses make the right choice when choosing a provider.

Out of the top 11 vendors highlighted in the report, we are thrilled that all of Maginus' Ecommerce solutions: Magento, Episerver and Sana have been recognised as the top 11 B2B commerce providers.

The 11 solutions were able to demonstrate competencies in four key areas including the ability to:

  • Illustrate a strong focus on B2B commerce

  • Possess critical components of a standalone B2B commerce suite

  • Produce at least $10 million in total B2B-specfic commerce revenue

  • And have a notable mindshare amongst Forrester clients and is frequently mentioned in the context of inquiries, briefings and consulting engagements.

The 11 vendors were classified into one of three groups; 'leading the pack', 'a strong contender' or 'a contender'.

How did Maginus’ solutions stack up against the criteria?


Individually, Magento has been identified in the report as a leader, with comments from the Forrester report that Magento ‘is a best fit for midsize B2B companies that want an open, feature-rich solution that they can extend easily and inexpensively by way of a large network of Magento Commerce system integration partners and developers’.


Forrester classified Episerver as a strong performer and as ‘a best fit for mid-market customers looking for a CMS-driven solution that offers tightly integrated commerce capabilities’.


The report recognised Sana as a contender with comments that it ‘is best for companies that want to directly extend their investment in their SAP or Microsoft ERP with a fast time-to-market and quite functional Ecommerce solution’.

We are delighted that three of our Ecommerce solutions have been given such a high accolade. To find out more about our technology solutions click here.
