Kentico Software Included in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Bedford, New Hampshire, USA, January 25, 2018—Kentico Software, a fast growing provider of content management systems (CMS) with offices in Europe, Asia Pacific, and North America, has been positioned by Gartner, Inc.—the world's leading information technology research and advisory company—in its January 2018 Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms.1

“The last twelve months have been extraordinarily positive for the company,” commented Kentico’s Founder and CEO, Petr Palas. “Kentico Software was positioned as a Challenger in the July 2017 Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management for the second year in a row.2 Here we are six months later, when the company is placed in the Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms, as a Niche Player.” He continued, “Kentico is delighted to be fueling a lot of innovation.”

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms is an evolution of the Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals. The Magic Quadrant provides a broad view of a specific market and vendor offerings. By applying a graphical treatment and a uniform set of evaluation criteria, the Magic Quadrant evaluates companies for their completeness of vision as well as their ability to execute.
