SapientNitro, part of Sapient® (NASDAQ: SAPE), today announced that leading research firm Gartner, Inc. has placed the company in the Leaders quadrant in its “Magic Quadrant for Global Digital Marketing Agencies,” published today. Gartner research evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of 14 leading global digital marketing agencies that are both strategically and creatively led. The Gartner evaluation states: “SapientNitro, a Leader (with diverse awards in creative, digital commerce and communications), enjoys a reputation as a one-stop shop for CMOs desiring strategy-led engagements supported with big ideas, engaging user experiences and complex technology underpinnings.” "We consider it a tremendous testament to be included among the leaders in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Global Digital Marketing Agencies," said Bill Kanarick, Sapient’s chief marketing officer. “Brands today require a different kind of agency partner to engage connected consumers across a complex ecosystem. SapientNitro strives to lead the marketplace in creating rich, always-on experiences that involve consumers in the brand story." Report authors Richard Fouts, Adam Sarner and Andrew Frank define leaders as having a broad representation of all competencies, from strategic services (whereby they also provide business strategy) to technology, experience design and marketing effectiveness. Leaders have evolved from the producer model, staffing their program management competency with PMI-certified professionals. While Leaders have attributes of fast followers, they also invest their own R&D dollars to set market direction. As a result, Leaders are the providers to watch as you try to understand how new offerings might evolve. Alan J. Herrick, president and CEO of Sapient, added, “It is an honor for SapientNitro to appear in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Global Digital Marketing Agencies. This recognition only strengthens our resolve to continually evolve in helping global brands succeed in a time of unprecedented change and opportunities.” To read a copy of the report, visit: http://www.sapient.com/gartnermagicquadrant.
