Progress, the provider of infrastructure software, has been named as one of 16 vendors in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms.

The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analysed the company's overall completeness of vision and ability to execute on its Progress Sitefinity DX digital experience platform.

Gartner states it considers a digital experience platform (DXP) to be a well-integrated and cohesive set of technologies designed to enable the composition, management, delivery and optimisation of contextualised digital experiences across multi experience customer journeys.

Progress EVP enterprise application experience products John Ainsworth says, "We believe there has been a major shift in market demand from single-vendor DXP suites to ecosystems of integrated best-of-breed platforms. Progress is at the forefront of this evolution, providing enterprises with a user-friendly alternative to complex, expensive and monolithic technologies.

"What the company began with Sitefinity CMS years ago has evolved into a broader vision of completeness with the release of Sitefinity DXan agile, flexible and extensible platform that organisations can use to create their own DXP solution by choosing which functionalities meet their unique business challenges and priorities to create composable digital experiences."

Ainsworth continues, "Everything Progress does is built around addressing the challenges that our customers face every day. As the core of a composable DXP, Sitefinity DX gives organisations a powerful solution without being overly complex or costly for creating digital experiences that drive business forward.

"We believe being named one of just 16 vendors in the Gartner Magic Quadrant validates our DX strategy and our ability to empower customers to unlock their digital potential."

Sitefinity DX is a cloud-enabled, composable digital experience platform that enables the customer journey with omnichannel experiences through a scalable, low complexity and value-driven approach.

With the Sitefinity platform, organisations can build and manage personalised customer experiences with capabilities that streamline marketing and development tasks and simplify common technical challenges, in order to offer higher value.

In the past year, Sitefinity DX has earned several recognitions based on verified user reviews. Most recently, it was named a G2 2022 Best Software Awards winner and a Leader in G2s Winter 2022 Grid for Digital Experience Platforms, with the highest user adoption score for DXP.

From the healthcare profession one customer commented, "Sitefinity continues to innovate and provide a cost effective, enterprise ready DXP solution. Sitefinity is much more than a CMS delivering quality insights on user journeys, [it is] an easily extendable and well supported code base that allows our development team to innovate and create meaningful interactions with our community."

Another customer from manufacturing says, "Sitefinity has been an excellent choice for our team as we have consolidated the global web presence and portals of 16+ brands across 14 languages and multiple regions to a single DXP. Focusing efforts on a single platform allows us to efficiently drive innovations and improve customer experience at a rapid pace."

Overall, Progress is focused on helping businesses drive faster cycles of innovation, fuel momentum and accelerate their path to success.

As the provider of products to develop, deploy and manage high-impact applications, Progress enables customers to build applications and experiences safely and securely. Many enterprises, including 1,700 software companies and 3.5 million developers, depend on Progress.
