Forrester Wave B2B and B2C commerce research

Forrester Wave B2B and B2C compare leading software solutions with pretty strict set of criteria met just to be included in the study. The platforms selected evaluated using number of metrics grouped into three brackets – current offering strength (how good is the solution right now), vision/strategy (how good it is expected to be in the future) and market presence (how easy to get it).

The platforms are then ranked as Leaders, Strong Performers, Contenders or Challengers.

  • Level with Oracle, Unilog, IBM and Salesforce
  • Again Magento has better store in vision/strategy and market presence than in current offering
