Progress placement in three Gartner Magic Quadrant reports affirms its position in key markets fundamental to digital business
The world is shifting to a focus on digital business; the coming together of several important worlds—mobile, web, cloud, analytics, data and more, with the goal of a better end-user experience, regardless of touch point. Bringing together the technology backbone for digital business is a challenge that every enterprise is facing, and it is a top concern not only to IT, but has made its way up to the C-suite. With literally hundreds of vendors offering a wealth of technologies, partners, integration points and more, the due diligence alone is slowing development cycles and pushing deadlines.
Knowing the immense importance of digital business, Progress has been at forefront of these transformative crossroads, providing our customers with the fundamental building blocks needed for a successful digital business strategy. This includes technology solutions in mobile app dev, web content management/digital marketing, Platform as a Service, data connectivity and more. And, because of our hard work and dedication to only bring the best to our customers, we’re proud to say our efforts have not gone unnoticed.
We’re happy to report that for the second consecutive year, Gartner has included Progress in three Gartner Magic Quadrants to date in 2015—Enterprise Application Platform as a Service (aPaaS), Mobile Application Development Platforms (MADP) and Web Content Management (WCM).
So, what does inclusion in these highly regarded reports mean? It means Progress met a very stringent set of guidelines for inclusion and was able to demonstrate movement in the areas of “Completeness of Vision” and “Ability to Execute.” Through its intensive review process, Gartner looked at elements including usability, integration, productivity and collaboration, among others. Specific products evaluated as part of the process included:
From a usability perspective, Progress offers the technologies and solutions necessary to build great apps and compelling websites that are beautiful and intuitive. The technology can enable data integration for any app, website and/or marketing initiative requiring the ability to pull data from multiple sources. Progress also empowers faster development and delivery of all things key to digital business, regardless of platform preferences, while facilitating better collaboration between IT and the business user—another important element to a successful digital business strategy.
Progress services a developer community of 1.7 million. Its technology is in use at 450 of the Fortune 500. More than 11,000 customers have deployed web sites on Telerik Sitefinity CMS. It is because of this vast community that Progress has been able to move the bar in digital business. Our community is also an important component of why Gartner recognized the company in these important market sectors. As a note of appreciation for the ongoing support given by our community, customers, partners and others, we’re offering all three reports for review.
