Oxcyon in Gartner's 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms”

CLEVELAND, Ohio –For Immediate Release - Oxcyon, Inc. and its Centralpoint technology have been included by Gartner, Inc. in the 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms.” Oxcyon was named one of only 10 vendors headquartered in the US in this new and emerging $18 Billion market (projected by 2021), alongside Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, Salesforce and Adobe. 

Who would have thought that an underdog software company from Cleveland could rank in the same Gartner Magic Quadrant with software giants?” says Samuel Keller, Oxcyon CEO. “People forget, at one point, Microsoft was an underdog, too, and they leveled the playing field. We’re doing the same thing now,” Keller says. Oxcyon levels the playing field by building qualified prospects a high-fidelity prototype of their Digital Experience Platform at no charge, before they enter any agreement with us”, says Keller.

“Given the breadth and functionality that Digital Experience Platforms promises, it is essential Oxcyon prove all of its superior capabilities and demonstrate how we can harmonize disparate data sets for each user securely from a central point. Most importantly, it eliminates the client’s risk in selecting a platform.” He continues. "Customers today should demand this from any vendor or consultant, proving market readiness (time to market) and their ability to meet challenges regarding long-range scale-ability (prior to signing),” Keller says..   

“Gartner’s recognition of Oxcyon and Centralpoint in the 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms” validates our vision since 2000, establishing Oxcyon as a pioneer in this space, with over 220 integrated functions. We are grateful to Gartner for their recognition”, says Samuel Keller, Oxcyon’s CEO.

Centralpoint can be installed (Windows/SQL) on premise or SaaS Cloud -- empowering its clients with support of multisite (public and private) initiatives, including Single Sign On (AD, LDAP, oAuth, SAML 2.0 and others) to deliver a personalized digital experience to each user uniquely from a ‘central point.’ “We believe the choice to install on premise (in addition to cloud) is essential, given the breadth and importance of a Digital Experience Platform,” says Keller. 

Centralpoint’s unique N-tiered architecture cascades information to each user based on their audience, region, role and/or attributes. Next, the user’s interactions with that information -- clicks, collaboration, tests, orders, edits, or any other action -- are stored by Centralpoint yielding valuable business intelligence from each user, giving insight into workflow, usage patterns, anything that can then trigger recommendations or alerts to each user based on that interaction. It acts as a rules engine to manage any conditions across any users, democratizing their interactions simultaneously. 

Centralpoint’s RESTful Web API allows this captured user experience data to feed or integrate to any back office CRM, ERP or compliance system(s). “It is the lipstick on the pig, managing all users by any roles, audiences or channels,” says Keller. “Although each organization is completely unique, the need to centralize information to cascade through their many audiences and user roles is not, and the high-fidelity prototyping we provide clarifies this need for clients at our first meeting,” says Keller. 

Oxcyon’s bi-weekly (pull) updates allow clients to stay ahead of their competitors, and evolve as technology evolves, regardless of where they choose to host. “This approach eliminates obsolescence traditionally found with left-behind applications”, says Keller. “Even though we’re a technology company, we believe modern vendors interested in building long-term relationships with their clients should also be in the risk-management business,” says Keller.
