As companion research, Gartner Critical Capabilities notes provide deeper insight into the capability and suitability of providers' IT products and services based on specific or customized use cases.

The following list of markets, dates and research documents is updated throughout the year with the latest Magic Quadrant and Critical Capabilities research notes. View upcoming research on the Publication Calendar.
