Gartner’s first MQ report on Personalization Engines points to the category’s robust evolution

“Personalization” is almost synonymous with marketing these days, since automation, AI and addressable content make individualized material a tantalizing capability.

To help sort out the facilitating tools, Gartner has released its first Magic Quadrant report on Personalization Engines. (It’s available for free, with registration, from several of the vendors mentioned in the report, including Evergage and Qubit.)
