We have some exciting news to share. Higher Logic was named a “Leader” in the “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Online Communities 2016 Vendor Assessment” report that was just released.  For those who are not familiar with IDC they are an analyst firm that focuses on the high tech market, similar to Gartner and Forrester.   Everyone at Higher Logic is very proud of this designation.  We strive to build the best product for you, our clients, and being identified by IDC as a leader in the market lets us know we are on the right track.  Not only are we identified as Leader, but we are placed in the farthest top-right corner of their MarketScape graphic (see below).

The report summarizes our strengths:  “Higher Logic's attention and focus on easing the community manager's life come through in the company's feature set, product organization, and customer base. The abilities to manage the paywall and control and expose content based on membership levels, help a community manager through automation rules, and use groups and reporting and analytics give the company strong marks for usability and providing the needed capabilities to community managers. Its integrations, wide range of mobility options, and email support provide a flexible platform that is focused on user adoption and engagement.”

The other vendors who made the final report are SPRINKLR, SAP,, Adobe, Lithium, Jive and Verint Systems.
