Crownpeak in The Forrester Wave™: Agile Content Management Systems (CMSes), Q1 2021

Forrester has released The Forrester Wave™: Agile Content Management Systems (CMSes), Q1 2021 which details the 15 most significant CMS vendors on the market. This report is not only a good starting point for anyone considering CMS vendors, but it also provides some insights from Forrester on key trends in the CMS market.

As we know, and as Forrester states in the report, “Brands that create great digital experiences fuel great customer experiences that add to the bottom line.” In addition, Forrester notes that in today’s market there has been a “shift to digital-first" and that more than ever, “brands need to be adaptive and assemble experiences more quickly”. 

At Crownpeak, we have seen this firsthand. The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the reliance on digital experiences and highlighted the crucial need for agility and adaptivity.  When the needs of the market change, whether due to a global crisis or any other influences, companies who are able to quickly adapt their digital experiences to meet their customers’ needs are the ones who succeed.

One important requirement for an agile CMS provider that Forrester highlights in this report is that they “deliver on the promise of reusable omnichannel content experiences”. In Forrester’s evaluation of Crownpeak, it is noted that “Crownpeak has solid capabilities in channel support, especially related to experience management, where it has a differentiated ability to deliver content to omnichannel.”

In addition to differentiated ability to deliver to omnichannel, Crownpeak has always found success in highly regulated industries due to our best-in-class security, our expertise in governance, quality management and compliance, and our innovative “headless 2.0” or “hybrid headless” architecture. 

 Forrester notes in our writeup:  

  • “Crownpeak targets brands in highly regulated industries where consistency and compliance are business imperatives.”
  • “Crownpeak is a good fit for companies in regulated markets like financial services and healthcare that require a CMS with flexible deployment options.”

The Forrester Wave™: Agile Content Management Systems (CMSes), Q1 2021 is a good place to start when beginning a CMS vendor evaluation, or for anyone looking for further insight into Forrester’s view of the market.
