Acquisition to Accelerate Digital Transformation Initiatives and Expand Support for Partner Ecosystem

San Francisco, June 10, 2019 – Sitecore®, the global leader in digital experience management software, today announced it has completed its acquisition of Hedgehog Development, a customer and partner-focused digital consultancy. Hedgehog technology will help to accelerate Sitecore’s growth while bolstering the people, technology, and services supporting Sitecore Solution Partners. 

“We are pleased to officially welcome Hedgehog into the Sitecore family to help us accelerate customer and partner success,” said Mark Frost, CEO of Sitecore. “This acquisition underscores our commitment to ensure customer satisfaction as it strengthens our partner enablement program, improves access to tools and training capabilities, and enhances developer support.”

“The maturation of customer demands combined with the increasing sophistication of the martech stack requires that digital partners have an intimate understanding of the software, processes and strategies to build great digital experiences,” said Scott Liewehr, CEO of Digital Clarity Group. “Sitecore has a unique opportunity to scale Hedgehog’s expertise across its channel by focusing the team on partner enablement and customer value realization through the provision of training and strategic guidance.”

Sitecore’s acquisition of Hedgehog closed on June 7, 2019. On that date, Hedgehog’s more than 80 employees became part of Sitecore, including the Hedgehog leadership team. Hedgehog’s TDS Essential Suite products will continue to be sold and supported without interruption. Sitecore will continue to evaluate the best way to serve our customers and the Sitecore community through ongoing product enhancements that leverage technology gained from this acquisition and feedback from our customers.
