The Magic Quadrant: Your view into smarter technology purchases

How does a Gartner Magic Quadrant™ work?

A Magic Quadrant is a tool that provides a graphical competitive positioning of technology providers to help you make smart investment decisions. Thanks to a uniform set of evaluation criteria, a Magic Quadrant provides a view of the four types of technology providers in any given field:

Leaders execute well against their current vision for changing market rules but do not yet execute well.

Visionaries understand where the market is going or have a vision for changing market rules but do not yet execute well.

Niche Players focus successfully on a small segment or are unfocused and do not out-innovate or outperform others.

Challengers execute well today or may dominate a large segment but do not demonstrate an understanding of market direction.

The Magic Quadrant is more than just a diagram. You also get:
