  • 17 September, 2007 09:54

<p>SYDNEY, Australia — 17 September 2007 — Vignette (NASDAQ: VIGN) today announced that Gartner has positioned the Next-Generation Web solution provider in the Leaders Quadrant in its Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portal Products, 2007 report[1].</p>
<p>According to the report, “Interest in the Web 2.0 phenomenon is affecting the horizontal portal market. In addition to leveraging Ajax or alternative rich Internet application technologies to provide richer user interfaces, horizontal portal vendors are looking to the consumer Internet for inspiration in terms of functionality ranging from enabling an end-user mashup generation to communal tagging and social networking.”</p>
<p>Gartner assesses vendors on their vision and ability to execute. According to the research firm, horizontal portal “leaders” have a full range of capabilities to support all portal deployment scenarios and demonstrate significant product innovation, consistent product delivery over a considerable period and continued success in selling to new customers.</p>
<p>"Using Vignette portal technology, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' official Web portal, Mass.Gov, consolidates information from hundreds of standalone state Web sites while providing consistent design and navigation with proven usability and accessibility," said Sarah Bourne, chief technology strategist for Mass.Gov.</p>
<p>“Vignette Portal enables organisations to deliver a personalised online experience to their customers, partners and employees,” said Leo Brunnick, senior vice president of products and marketing at Vignette. “A core product within Vignette’s Next-Generation Web solution suite, Vignette Portal delivers enterprise-class Web 2.0 and social networking functionality to create engaging experiences that help organisations acquire, serve and grow their customer base.”</p>
