What is the Gartner Magic Quadrant?

Gartner’s research for the Magic Quadrant evaluates innovative technology companies’ ability to execute their mission and their completeness of vision. This coveted distinction helps buyers assess vendor capabilities compared to their closest market competitors, promoting more educated purchases and stronger partnerships. The four quadrants are Challengers, Leaders, Niche Players, and Visionaries—all representing different companies at different stages in their operations.

Gartner’s Magic Quadrants are valuable because they influence the buying decisions of organizations of all sizes and verticals. Large companies often turn to Gartner and its reports to support their strategies and influence the vendor selection process.
