Gartner

Gartner's Magic Quadrant research methodology provides a graphical competitive positioning of four types of technology providers in fast-growing markets: Leaders, Visionaries, Niche Players and Challengers. For emerging or mature markets, Gartner's MarketScopes are the best tool to help clients understand how the status of an emerging or mature market aligns with their own state of maturity and future plans.
