e-Spirit has been recognized in the report for six consecutive years.

e-Spirit, maker of the FirstSpirit Digital Experience Platform (DXP) which includes a hybrid Content Management System (CMS), today announced that it was again named a Visionary in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management. The annual report evaluates vendors in the web content management space. e-Spirit has improved its position on both axes in the 2019 Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management compared to the previous year. Among other areas, we attribute this continued momentum to FirstSpirit’s hybrid CMS (headless+) which makes it easy to create and deliver personalized, content-driven experiences on any channel and in any DX ecosystem at speed.

"We are thrilled to have improved our position in this 2019 Magic Quadrant on both axes within the Visionaries quadrant compared to the previous year. We believe that this position reaffirms e-Spirit’s ongoing commitment to technology innovation, speed, plus our next generation Hybrid CMS approach which gives customers the opportunity to differentiate via omnichannel customer experiences,” said Udo Straesser, CRO of e-Spirit.”

“We’re investing more in our product than ever before--27% of revenue into R&D product innovation--which is well above our competitors and the industry average. We’ve also substantially invested in sales and marketing for the US market, and plan to invest more in APAC to ensure the best support globally for customers and partners. That’s why e-Spirit is one of the top CMS vendors to work with,” Straesser added.

We feel that companies will learn more about WCM vendors and their position in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management, and therefore, they can reinforce their investment decisions by means of an objective analyses.
