Independent Analyst Firm Cites Unica as a Leader in Cross-Channel Campaign Management

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2009) - Unica Corporation (NASDAQ: UNCA), the recognized leader in marketing software solutions, today announced that independent analyst firm Forrester Research, Inc. has named Unica a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Cross-Channel Campaign Management, Q4 2009 (December 2009).

According to Forrester, "Changing consumer behavior and the overall ineffectiveness of traditional marketing programs ensure that basic campaign management tools are set to go the way of the dodo. Marketers are therefore looking for cross-channel campaign management (CCCM) solutions that support highly personalized and relevant communications delivered across a variety of highly interactive channels and that enable optimization, channel integration, and institutional memory of the customer."

Forrester evaluated CCCM vendors based on 91 criteria and recognized Unica's platform depth, strategy, and strong roster of clients. Forrester also highlighted the company's capabilities for campaign design, optimization, cross-channel integration, and data management.

"It's both a tremendous honor and accomplishment to be recognized as a leader in this latest Forrester Wave, which further reflects our focus on helping marketers adopt interactive marketing," said Elana Anderson, vice president of Products at Unica. "As Forrester notes, 'marketers need a new set of tools (to support this shift from traditional programs to highly relevant and personalized communications delivered through a multitude of interactive and direct channels).' Unica Interactive Marketing, which received the Wave's highest scores for current offering and strategy, provides these tools, enabling marketers to overcome pressures and realize success."
