Avaya Is Now Recognized as a Visionary by Gartner

Gartner delivers an annual Magic Quadrant that is a cumulative report of extensive research on technology markets including emerging, changing, or growing markets, and mature, well-established markets focused on transformational technologies and delivering future needs for end users. The Magic Quadrant helps you quickly ascertain how well technology providers are executing their stated visions and how well they are performing against Gartner’s market view. It provides graphical comparative positioning of providers where market growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct. They depict markets by using a two-dimensional matrix that evaluates vendors based on their “Completeness of Vision” and “Ability to Execute.”

For Gartner, the Magic Quadrant identifies and then analyzes the most relevant providers and their products in a market.
