Magento Commerce Named a Leader Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Campbell, CA, May 1, 2017 – Magento Commerce, the worldwide leader in digital commerce innovation cloud, today announced that it has been named a Leader by Gartner Inc. in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce. The company believes this recognition underscores the platform’s unique ability to provide customers with the agility and scalability they need to grow their businesses, respond to shifting marketing demands, and maintain a low total cost-of-ownership.

The report evaluates digital commerce platforms based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. Magento Commerce provides a comprehensive, open and flexible commerce cloud backed by a large, vibrant community of developers, technology partners, and system integrators who embrace openness and collaboration as their core ethos.

“Heads of commerce face a perfect storm of change: escalating consumer expectations, rapidly shifting technologies and consumer behaviors, and increasing market disruption from digital business models,” said Mark Lavelle, CEO of Magento Commerce. “Leading brands want to build brand-worthy experiences at the center of their digital strategies. At Magento, we’re committed to helping merchants unleash their creative potential so that they can scale, grow, and achieve sustainable differentiation.”

The world’s leading brands, including Canon, Nestle, Zumiez, Helly Hansen, and Frankfurt Airport, rely on Magento’s open platform and rich ecosystem to create customer experiences that distinguish them from competitors. Magento Commerce Cloud is uniquely designed to meet the needs of B2B and B2C merchants. More than 60% of Magento merchants use the platform to sell to both businesses and direct to consumers.

“In an age where successful commerce hinges on a company’s ability to rapidly innovate and deliver exceptional customer experiences across channels, Magento's open, flexible and scalable platform has unleashed new potential for Canon,” said Aman Bhalla, head of Digital Commerce, Canon Oceania. "With Magento's industry-leading products and unparalleled ecosystem, we have created experiences that enable consumers and businesses to buy and experience Canon in the manner that suits them best, whenever and wherever they are. We have seen record breaking months since launch and the platform allows us to exceed customers’ expectations and build on Canon’s 80-year heritage of quality and trust.”
