Gartner Glossary


Transparency is a condition where the material facts of an enterprise are made available in a timely, and preferably reusable, manner.

  • Material facts encompass reliable information critical to the decision making of both internal and external stakeholders.
  • The object of transparency is the enterprise (not an individual).
  • Reusability allows consumers of information to construct their own analyses without compromising the contextual meaning of the material facts.
