Ogilvy, a global marketing and communications company, has been named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Global Marketing Agencies report for the fifth consecutive year. Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, evaluates vendors based on the ability to execute and for completeness of vision based on 15 distinct evaluation criteria.
“We believe Ogilvy’s continued recognition in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Global Marketing Agencies report is a true testament to Ogilvy’s commitment of bringing together the full power of brand, creative, and technology to create more value for our clients,” said Carla Hendra, Chief Digital Officer, The Ogilvy Group.
“Our work with clients such as IBM, Colgate and Nestlé demonstrates how we are focused on making our clients’ brands matter by growing their business and brand value through customer experience innovation.”
As described by Gartner, “Leaders possess deep, broad capabilities across all competencies, most notably related to strategic services (which include business strategy and digital business transformation skills). Leaders implement comprehensive, effective solutions that leverage sizable investments in creative talent and marketing technology. They invest their own R&D dollars to set market direction. As a result, Leaders are the providers to watch in the ongoing evolution and transformation of marketing in a digital world.
“Leaders maintain a viable business, regardless of the global economy. Leaders extend their client relationships far beyond marketing promotions, often appearing on competitive bids outside their primary sector (for example, management consulting, product ideation and product development requests for quotations).
“Leaders help their clients develop digital marketing platforms designed for systemic growth and scale; they do so by harnessing their own significant expertise in implementing digital marketing programmes driven by data and analytics.”
In 2019, Ogilvy expanded its MIT CISR (Center for Information Systems Research) patronage to a global level, providing the agency a unique opportunity in Digital Transformation. Through this patronage, Ogilvy and its clients gain access to winning strategies, innovation, primary academic research, thought leadership, benchmarking and IP within business and digital transformation.
Additionally, the Ogilvy MarTech CoE (Center of Excellence) continues to flourish and develop talent and expertise with stronger alignment across the tech partnership ecosystem with Adobe, Salesforce, Acquia, Sitecore, Branch and Braze.
