To get into Forrester's Web Content Management Club, you have to have a few things. Like $50 million, for starters.
Forrester's top 10 WCM vendors, which the Cambridge, Mass.-based research organization announced yesterday in its Wave, must have at least $50 million in WCM or digital experience revenue annually.
They also need "significant interest from Forrester clients" and "experience as the primary solution for web content management in large organizations."
In other words, we're swimming with web content management sharks here, not pond minnows.
Which shark has the best bite? Forrester researchers said Adobe Systems for its Adobe Experience Manager 6.0. Sitecore was also named a leader.
Acquia, OpenText, SDL, HP, IBM and Oracle were cited by Forrester as "strong performers." And Ektron and EPiServer -- now merged -- got nods individually as "contenders." In all, the top 10 includes six American-rooted companies, three European and one Canadian.
Let's take a peek into how Forrester researchers analyze each shark.
