Squiz Named a Market Leader in Ovum Decision Matrix for Web Content Management
Squiz, provider of web experience management solutions, is proud to announce that it has been named a market leader by information technology analysts, Ovum, in their new Decision Matrix: Selecting a Web Content Management Platform Vendor 2012-2013.
Squiz is the only open source vendor amongst the market leaders and scores highly across a comprehensive set of WCM functions and features. The report states: "Squiz’s position as a market leader proves that an open source solution can be as functionally rich as a product from a large vendor."
The Decision Matrix provides a concise picture of the WCM market, and in-depth analysis of the key vendors, to help organisations to make an informed platform selection. Each solution has been assessed against a number of criteria in six key areas of capability - core WCM features, web analytics, digital asset management, social media capabilities, mobile, and architecture and administration - with Squiz scoring highly in every category.
The report observes that: "Given the importance of the web as a sales channel, organizations cannot afford to make a mistake in the choice of WCM system and although many of the features of the products have become commoditized, there is still enough differentiation for organizations to be able to make an informed choice."
Managing Director of Squiz, John-Paul Syriatowicz, commented: "It is always an honour for our products and services to be recognised by industry analysts and we’re proud to be rated highly in the Ovum report. It highlights our dedication to developing Squiz products and services to offer our clients a best-of-breed solution that is at the very forefront of the market."
