Report Distinguishes WP Engine’s Contributions to WordPress Development and Dedication to Customer Experience as Factors to WordPress’ Overall Enterprise Readiness

AUSTIN, Texas--()--WP Engine, a leader in powering amazing digital experiences for websites and applications built on WordPress, today announced availability of a new Impact Report by 451 Research, titled WP Engine Helps to Push the Managed WordPress Hosting Model into the Enterprise. The report discusses WP Engine’s significant code-level contribution to the WordPress core while also detailing the company’s strong growth by delivering high-quality service to enterprise customers resulting in faster resolution times.

“One site in four built on the web, globally, is built on WordPress. The WordPress system has been evolving, going from a simple blogging platform to competing with the world’s most sophisticated web content management systems”

“WP Engine is regarded as a leader in providing managed hosting based on the open source WordPress content management system,” said Liam Eagle, 451 research senior analyst, service providers. “The company is setting the tone for the larger market of traditional, generalist Web and application hosting providers, as many of these service providers develop managed WordPress.”

According to the 451 Research report, “In the broader market, WP Engine believes it differentiates on the quality of its support and service. This is a common claim in the Web hosting space. However, it is a realistic differentiator in the very specialized, and very performance-focused managed WordPress hosting market.”

The report also noted WP Engine’s expertise in operating WordPress, the performance of its platform, and its reputation and activity within the WordPress open source community. WP Engine is a significant code-level contributor to the WordPress core thanks to two developers on staff who are closely involved in the development of the application itself. This enables the company to iterate on its own platform with an awareness of planned developments to the core.

“One site in four built on the web, globally, is built on WordPress. The WordPress system has been evolving, going from a simple blogging platform to competing with the world’s most sophisticated web content management systems,” said Heather Brunner, chief executive officer for WP Engine. “WP Engine acts as an extension of an IT team meaning our customers don’t have to worry about servers or support. Instead, they can devote all their efforts to brand-building activities and delivering the best possible online experience for their business.”
