Magento, the leading open-source e-commerce platform, has just notched a new honor: Forrester Research has named it an “Emerging Player to Watch” in its Forrester Wave: B2C eCommerce Platforms, Q1 2009 report.
This is an exceptional testament to the growing momentum of Magento. Varien’s Magento is the only open-source e-commerce platform named in the report, alongside industry leaders IBM and ATG.
But it’s not what Varien has done with Magento that Forrester deems exciting. Rather, it is Magento’s momentum, and implicit room to grow, that Forrester calls this out in its report.
