Adobe named a sixth-time Leader in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Digital Commerce

Adobe has been recognized for the sixth year in a row as a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce report. We are once again honored to receive this recognition as we believe it’s a testament to Adobe’s vision and the strategic decisions taken to expand our capabilities and improve experiences for both our customers and their buyers.

In recent years, the digital commerce space has undergone a never-before-seen transformational period. Exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses have had to adapt at a record pace to new and more stringent customer expectations. Buyers expect high levels of personalization and the ability to search, find, and purchase their desired items as quickly as possible. Brands all around the world will attest to the fact that inaction is a recipe for failure. Gone are the days when a simple online presence with rudimentary or ad hoc solutions would suffice to generate traffic and sales.

According to Adobe’s2021 Digital Economy Index, US consumers have spent more than $1.7 trillion online since March 2020, and online spend for 2022 is expected to eclipse $1 trillion. More than ever, businesses need to depend on ecommerce platforms that are reliable to keep pace with such rapid growth. They need a platform that can deliver on buyer expectations and provide them with unique features and capabilities that will help streamline their operations, save costs, and get ahead of their competitors. Platforms that will support business objectives are well positioned to execute on their strategic vision.

Adobe has been recognized as a Leader for our ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Take Alshaya Group, for example. With the help of Adobe Commerce and Adobe Consulting Services, the organization was able to successfully launch, in the span of 12 months, 30 new ecommerce sites and two mobile apps, resulting in a 268% YoY growth in online transactions.

“Working with Adobe is a key part of the equation, helping us innovate together and make this change happen at pace,” said Marc van der Heijden, CTO of Alshaya Group.

Adobe Commerce helped Alshaya and other retailers like them meet their ecommerce goals and become a true omnichannel brand where shoppers can seamlessly shop in store and online.

And we haven’t stopped there. We understand that the market keeps evolving. Buyers’ expectations are ever-changing — and brands need to adapt. In the last year, Adobe has continued building on our commitment and making high-impact changes to processes and features that deliver on our promise to power the next generation of digital business.

Below are just a few of those noteworthy enhancements that have been released in the last 12 months.

We believe this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce report is further validation that Adobe is not only capable of delivering results today but is well positioned to continue aiding our customers in achieving their ecommerce goals in the years to come.

However, we know our work is far from over. To remain in this prestigious position, we must continue working on adding capabilities that will future-proof our platform and will make our value proposition even more compelling by strengthening our integration with other Adobe leading tools and products.
