Demand for DXP Changing the Technology Landscape

Digital Experience Platforms (DXPs) are forcing a categorical shift in the technology marketplace

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — (9 May, 2018) — Liferay, Inc. today announced it believes a 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant report focused on Digital Experience Platforms (DXPs) is one reflection of change in the technology landscape. Gartner defines a DXP in the Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms as “an integrated set of technologies, based on a common platform, that provides a broad range of audiences with consistent, secure and personalised access to information and applications across many digital touchpoints.”

Renowned, global DXP provider Liferay welcomes their inclusion as a Leader in this Magic Quadrant.

Adrian Johnson, General Manager of Liferay Australia, credited the Liferay Digital Experience Platform’s origin in open source development for keeping them agile and future focused.

“Innovation is led by the community, applied by organisations and leveraged by customers and end users. This enables quicker ROI and visibility into real, tangible results.”

DXPs are both shaping and being shaped by how organisations digitally deliver their services. Enterprises are increasingly using open source software to reduce the cost and time required to develop applications.

Johnson believes the adoption of integrated technologies throughout Australia and New Zealand to fully digitise all areas of business, has been both swift and decisive.

“The use of Digital Experience Platforms as a foundation for commercial growth is a widely accepted practice within the Australian and New Zealand business communities. We’ve experienced consistent double-digit growth over the last two years, indicating the region’s willingness to embrace integrated DXPs to deliver services.

“Watching digital transformation take place within the local marketplace is truly exciting for us. Liferay is uniquely positioned to stay at the forefront of innovation and product development through its open source roots, and we truly believe this inaugural Gartner Magic Quadrant is the tip of the iceberg – users are hungry for an integrated digital experience.

“We feel the momentum of change here is immense,” said Mr Johnson.

Liferay is at the forefront of technology and is chosen by organisations for its rapid development capabilities, agile scalability, and proven reliability to launch businesses forward.
