This year, the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms will include Progress Sitefinity. Already praised by customers and many industry experts, Sitefinity’s recent product development moves us into a new era of digital experience. Inclusion in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms (DXPs) is the result of years of research and effort—and we are just getting started. We can’t wait for what’s ahead.

Who Is Gartner and What Is the 2022 DXP Magic Quadrant?

Gartner is a research and advisory firm offering expert insights for executives. For more than four decades, industry professionals have trusted Gartner to identify and understand market trends in technology through their quantitative research and advisory services. The Gartner Magic Quadrant is an essential tool that identifies vendors who have put in the hard work to develop a vision for future success and who have also shown the ability to execute on that vision.

The 40-Year-Old New Kid on the DXP MQ Block

Progress is extremely proud to have Sitefinity DX included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Digital Experience Platforms for 2022. This is not the first time Progress has appeared in an analyst report, nor is it our first time in a Magic Quadrant, but we are new to the DXP MQ, and with this announcement there is an energy in our ranks you don’t see in many 40-year-old companies. When you take a closer look into what we have put together, you’ll understand our excitement.

The release of Sitefinity DX 14 marked a giant leap forward into the digital experience realm for Progress Sitefinity, even as we maintain that direction and increase the velocity with the upcoming release of Sitefinity DX 14.1 (which is much more than a minor release). You’ll see we are not letting our foot off the accelerator.

Good Advice Plus Hard Work Equals Great Results

We have to mention that the guidance we’ve received from Gartner analysts over the past few years has been instrumental in the formation of this vision and roadmap. We are grateful for the many interactions with Gartner that have brought us to this point. Our business plan benefited in innumerable ways from their advice.

Then, with a plan on paper, heads down and sleeves rolled up, our product team worked tirelessly to innovate, rethink, and ultimately transform a solid content management offering (with some digital experience capabilities) into a formidable digital experience platform with a future-focused vision, massive integration options and strong partner alliances.

The Software Developer’s Software Developer

Simultaneously, we took a deep look into our other time-tested product offerings to find ways to leverage strengths we already possessed. Gartner’s criteria for inclusion include targets for revenue, regional reach, extensibility, and cloud deployment capabilities. It became abundantly clear to us that our long history as a creator of platforms used by other developers was a strength few of our competitors could replicate. This is an evolving process, but we foresee great opportunities for Progress and the (literally) hundreds of thousands of enterprises running their mission-critical business systems on Progress software.

Cloud, Composability, Next Generation Development and Low-Code Integration

These are just few of the Sitefinity DX capabilities we want to highlight:

  • Cloud deployment capacity with an enterprise-grade PaaS offering powered by Microsoft Azure, Sitefinity Cloud enables load balancing, autoscaling and geo-replication with robust tools, services, CI/CD automation and the highest levels of security and control.
  • An integrated chatbot experience with the Progress NativeChat chatbot widget.
  • Integrated analytics and AI attribution with Sitefinity Insight. Any size organization can now provide personalized experiences with optimized results and a crafted customer journey map.
  • Sitefinity development with .NET Core. Offer your DevOps team the next generation development environment with an improved decoupled/headless approach to presentation.
  • Low-code capabilities with Sitefinity Service Hooks for a whole new range of opportunities for extensibility and integration.
  • Powerful DAM capabilities utilizing partner integrations or API connectivity.
