In KuppingerCole’s new report – “Leadership Compass – CIAM Platforms” – twelve CIAM vendors are rated in four categories: Overall Leadership, Product Leadership, Market Leadership, and Innovation Leadership. Not only is Gigya the one company to be named an Overall Leader, but also the only one to be named a Leader in all four categories.
The report lays out yet another strong case that in today’s always-on, connected world, businesses should use a specialized provider such as Gigya to manage customer data, as opposed to relying on home-grown or traditional employee-facing IAM solutions.

According to Martin Kuppinger, the founder and principal analyst of KuppingerCole, “Gigya’s focus on consumer experience and integrating identity into marketing tools provides a powerful platform for not only managing customer identities, but also for creating usable intelligence to better serve those customers – making them an overall leader in CIAM.”
