Magento Improves Leader Position in Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce Compared to Previous Year

Second consecutive year Magento named as a Leader based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute

CAMPBELL, CA – June 7, 2018 — Magento Commerce, the worldwide leader in cloud digital commerce innovation, today announced Magento has been named a Leader in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce. According to Gartner, Leaders execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow. Magento Commerce believes this recognition underscores the platform’s unique ability to provide customers with the performance, scalability, and security they need to deliver full-lifecycle customer experiences and grow sales—no matter their size or needs.

Magento Commerce provides B2B and B2C merchants across multiple industries with a flexible commerce cloud solution, supported by a vibrant community of developers, technology partners, and system integrators. Leading merchants including Burger King, Coca-Cola, Shinola, and Helly Hansen depend on Magento Commerce to connect with millions of new customers around the world through exceptional digital experiences.

“We are constantly evolving our offerings to help merchants scale faster and adapt to the changing expectations of buyers,” said Mark Lavelle, CEO of Magento Commerce. “The companies we work with strive to offer customers unparalleled experiences while finding ingenious ways to stand out among competitors. To us, being named as a Leader validates our commitment to provide comprehensive and innovative solutions that help brands reach the next phase of their digital commerce journey.”

“To keep up with the growing demand for our products, we needed a flexible solution for our B2B and B2C operations that was highly scalable, supported multiple languages and currencies, and would help us infuse the customer experience with compelling content," said Chris Hammond, Global Digital Director of Helly Hansen. “Magento delivered all that and more. The platform has allowed us to break into many new markets while personalizing the shopping experience for our customers around the world.”

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce evaluated 18 vendors and identified their ability to execute and completeness of vision—which, we feel, gives a nuanced, transparent view of competitors within the market.

Magento Commerce offers customers the ability to respond to changing market and business demands without compromise, delivering an industry-leading, low cost-of-ownership solution with a fast time-to-market.
