A Flurry of Private Equity M&A in Content Management Hits the CEM World
The CEM (customer experience management) world has experienced a number of content management system (CMS) mergers and acquisitions, with whispers of others on the way. The acquisitions of Sitecore, Episerver, and Ektron by private equity firms are the most prominent recent examples. This activity will only increase over the next year or two, and the landscape for CMS vendors will change significantly as a result. Although foreseeable and arguably long overdue, the shifting and consolidating vendor landscape will undoubtedly bring some disruption to vendors, channel partners, and technology buyers alike. As the captain of the CMS flight might suggest, it’s time to fasten your seatbelts, for there’s turbulence ahead.
In this report, Alan Pelz-Sharpe analyzes the implications and outlines clear-headed responses on the parts of all participants in the CEM ecosystem.Download now
