Independent Research Firm Notes in Its Web Content Management Report That Growing Sitecore Directly Takes on the Leaders With More High-End Functionality

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2009) - Sitecore, the leading provider of .NET Web Content Management System (CMS) software, today announced the company was among the Web Content Management (WCM) companies that Forrester Research, Inc. included in its August 2009 report titled, "Five Additional Options to Consider for Web Content Management." Sitecore was evaluated on features and functionalities in six categories: content authoring and ingestion, workflow administration, content integration, site and content targeting, multisite and global content management, and community controls. In the evaluation, Sitecore was the only firm to receive a 3 out of 4 ranking in five categories.

According to Forrester, "Sitecore shows strengths in many of the areas where [a competitor] shows weaknesses: multilingual content, targeting, and separation of content and presentation for dynamic delivery and content reuse. In addition, Sitecore's new Online Marketing Suite (OMS) supports weighting page and component views by customer segments and provides real-time reports that reflect the 'human experience' rather than URL calls."

"The Web content management market is ever evolving with solutions that manage simple websites to suites that are designed for the marketer and focus on customer engagement," said Michael Seifert, CEO, Sitecore. "Sitecore is in the unique position of offering solutions that support both ends of the spectrum. This Forrester report is another example of how organizations are looking at a wider range of WCM options to meet their business and IT requirements."
