Gartner Magic Quadrants are an essential, reliable source of information for CIOs and other C-level executives, when assessing technology and service providers for critical business decisions. Differentiation based on differing company size, level of complexity and strategies can make it challenging to compare vendor offerings. Gartner’s Magic Quadrants solve these challenges by offering snapshots of markets and their participants. These documents enable companies to map vendor strengths against their current and future needs. The Magic Quadrant includes categories for leaders, challengers, visionaries and niche players.
