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.
Magento, probably the best-known eCommerce platform has moved into the Leading segment for the first time alongside SAP and the other big players. It’s certainly no surprise. As it is owned by eBay it’s always had good connectors with that marketplace (an important channel for smaller retailers). In addition, although last year’s release of Magento 2 into the market as an ‘enterprise ready’ product was painful for developers, it did significantly improve ease of use for end users and add some nice new functionality.
