The global enterprise mobile service market includes offerings that meet domestic and international mobile services requirements for organizations with more than 1,000 employees. This market includes mobile services for voice, messaging and data access for enterprise-grade applications. It covers 2G, 3G (see Note 1), 4G and 5G services used via basic phones and smartphones, cellular-enabled tablets and laptops, and mobile hot spots. Additional capabilities may include managed mobility solutions.
The managed IoT connectivity service market enables connectivity, data collection and analysis, and additional decision services that are necessary for connected solutions, including: Connections can use various technologies. Connections can be cellular (2G, 3G, 4G/LTE and 5G), satellite, LPWA networks (3GPP and non-3GPP) and managed field-area networks (FANs). Public hot spots are not part of the scope. Managed IoT connectivity services also enable businesses and IoT providers to collect, analyze and interact with data streams, thus providing businesses with the ability to monitor, manage and control (manually and through automation) assets associated with business processes. Additionally, managed IoT connectivity services may encompass integrated and managed IT infrastructure and systems, operational technology (OT) infrastructure and systems, software, network services (connectivity), and IT services.
Gartner’s view of the MNS market is focused on externally provided network operations center (NOC) life cycle services delivering on both the current and emerging needs of end-user customers. The MNS market consists of globally capable providers of MNS that provide service management functions for the operation of enterprise networks for two managed network services: Managed LAN/WLAN services (i.e., MNS for LAN) include the management of all in-scope enterprise LAN customer premises equipment (CPE), inclusive of a single point of contact (SPOC) ownership for the life cycle management of these devices. Managed WAN services (MNS for WAN) include the management of all in-scope enterprise site edge networking CPE and WAN transport management. These services provide life cycle management for site edge CPE, such as routers and SD-WAN. Additionally, MNS providers provide a SPOC for troubleshooting ownership with all WAN transport services connecting client sites.
MSSs provide organizations with a variety of management and operational services specific to security technologies and business outcomes for security. Capabilities include security monitoring, detection and response, exposure assessment and management as well as security consulting and security technology implementation. MSSs are delivered in a variety of modes, in the providers’ cloud infrastructure, as consultative engagements or through staff augmentation and on-premises. MSS providers offer a variety of different engagement models. These include heavily customized and consultancy-led models and commoditized technology management-driven experiences.
Gartner defines the network service global market as the delivery of fixed corporate networking services with worldwide coverage. Services that this market evaluates include established global network services and emerging global network service categories, as follows: WAN services, predominantly managed hybrid WANs, cloud connectivity, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking, managed software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) services, network on-demand services, NFV services and vCPE.
Security consulting firms are advisory and consulting services (see "Definition: Cybersecurity" ) related to information and IT security design, evaluation and recommendations. These services are procured by various stakeholders in an organization, including boards of directors, CEOs, chief risk officers (CROs), chief information security officers (CISOs), chief information officers (CIOs), and other business and IT leaders for the purpose of obtaining and ensuring acceptable risk levels for a specific client organization.

Gartner defines unified communications as a service (UCaaS) as a cloud-delivered service that provides many of the same functions as premises-based unified communications (UC) solutions. The core capabilities of UCaaS offerings include those in the following areas: Telephony Meetings Messaging Software apps (formerly software clients) Communication APIs and SDKs Adjacent services
Solutions for vehicle routing and scheduling and last mile are specialized transportation applications aimed at organizations that directly (e.g., private fleet) or indirectly (e.g., contract fleet, crowdsourced fleets) manage shipping assets and resources. These tools are used to develop route plans that meet the delivery objectives at minimal cost/mileage based on the firm’s input (such as from orders), rules and constraints. The route plans must also address customer experience. The aim is to minimize transportation costs while satisfying feasibility constraints as to when and where stops are made, what can be loaded in each vehicle, and what routes drivers can serve.
Gartner defined Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) as the evolution of the web application firewall market (WAF), expanding WAF capabilities to four core features: WAF, DDoS protection, bot management and API protection. WAAP development started with cloud-delivered WAF services that were easier to deploy, and from the start bundled WAF with DDoS protection. Slowly, the WAF market evolved to offer more than basic capabilities for bot management and API protection. 2019 marked a tipping point with four vendors acquiring specialized bot mitigation providers. During 2020, Gartner observed improvements related to API security features availability, but also more stringent enterprises’ requirements related to the four core WAAP features.
