Exciting news for Pixafy and Magento customers alike – for the third consecutive year, Magento has been recognized as a leader for completeness of vision and ability to execute. The acknowledgement came from the 2019 “Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce Platforms” positioned by Gartner, Inc. After evaluating the ability to execute and completeness of vision of 13 different vendors, Magento has once again come out on top.
Gartner Magic Quadrant
Gartner, Inc. ranked the 13 different players in the digital commerce field through their Magic Quadrant. Though simple in appearance, the Gartner Magic Quadrant has been refined throughout the years to help businesses understand which kind of technology provider is best for a specific investment opportunity. Gartner recognizes that in a market where growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct, it can be difficult for a business to determine the best provider. Not only does the Magic Quadrant help businesses, but it has been the cornerstone for the 2019 report to identify specific providers for each category.
The Magic Quadrant is divided into four distinct categories: Challengers, Leaders, Visionaries and Niche Players. Furthermore, each category is rated on how well they are performing on their ability to execute and their completeness of vision. Ultimately, a digital commerce platform should have a clear vision of how their technology and features will perform in the future, as well as a plan to execute that vision in order to rank highest.
Magento has achieved leader status through their superior technology, viability, services and features that the Magic Quadrant analyzes. With it’s highly customizable platform and constant support, Magento can help businesses build a unique online store with the best shopping cart system alongside marketing and catalog-management tools. The seamless integration of their offerings allows small and large businesses alike the opportunity to streamline their eCommerce on a user-friendly platform. Having been acknowledged as a leader for three years in a row, it’s clear Magento as an eCommerce platform offers the most benefits to businesses.
What it means to be a leader
Gartner provides their official definition of a leader as one who, “execute(s) well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow.” In other words, a leader excels at both the ability to execute and their completeness of vision. When evaluating the qualities of the three additional categories, it is clear that a leader is in the best position for continued success. A leader has the qualities that appeal to a wide array of businesses across industries and sizes. This is where Magento triumphs and is part of the reason that it is the No. 1 eCommerce platform in the world.
