Gartner positions Experian Marketing Services as a Challenger in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Digital Marketing Hubs

New York, N.Y., Feb. 3, 2016 — Experian Marketing Services, a recognized leader in data-driven marketing and cloud-based marketing technology, was positioned for the first time as a Challenger in the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Marketing Hubs report. To compile the report, Gartner reviews corporate, customer, partner and product qualifications, along with other critical capabilities. Evaluation of vendors includes taking a close look at their ability to execute and their completeness of vision. Gartner surveyed a panel of nearly 100 users referenced by the vendors in this report.

A complimentary copy of the Gartner report can be accessed on Experian Marketing Services’ Website: 

Gartner defines a digital marketing hub as providing “marketers and applications with standardized access to audience profile data, content, workflow elements, messaging and common analytic functions for orchestrating and optimizing multichannel campaigns, conversations, experiences, and data collection across online and offline channels, both manually and programmatically.”[i]

“We’re thrilled to be included in the Magic Quadrant for Digital Marketing Hubs report. We feel it’s a strong validation to be recognized by Gartner for our progress in delivering a flexible solution that addresses marketers’ evolving needs,” said Ashley Johnston, senior vice president, Global Marketing, Experian Marketing Services. “We believe this acknowledgment is due to our strength in identity management enabled by our foundation in data and feel that it underscores what sets the Experian Marketing Suite apart.
