The way that Gartner will enable you to interact with this time-tested methodology is about to change, based heavily on feedback from you and other clients. We’ve been listening closely about suggested feature changes in the interactive versions of the Magic Quadrant that will help all of you to: a) dial up or down the importance of evaluation criteria based on your specific interests, and b) visualize side-by-side comparisons of past and present views of the Magic Quadrant. To provide you with a full update on these important changes, we’ve interviewed Julie Thomas, MVP of Research Content Strategy.
