San Ramon, CA - 13th January 2009
OutSystems, provider of the industry-leading All-In-One Agile Suite, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the visionaries quadrant in the December 2008 “Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for SOA Composite Application Projects” report.
Gartner Magic Quadrants position vendors within a particular market segment based on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute on that vision.
Gartner states that this latest Magic Quadrant for SOA Composite Application Projects “aims at helping organizations select a comprehensive end-to-end application infrastructure to support composite application projects in the context of SOA and other initiatives. Mature products are available, but technologies are evolving, and the vendor landscape is changing.”
Gartner defines Visionaries in the “Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for SOA Composite Application Projects” market as “vendors with a strong focus on composite applications, from a sales and marketing perspective, and have products or packaging of their general-purpose suites specifically targeting this opportunity. For some of these vendors, application infrastructure for SOA composite application projects is their primary or sole market. They have invested primarily in the development of innovative, composite application technology, and their prospects for survival and growth critically depend on their ability to establish a strong presence in this market.”
“We believe OutSystems’ positioning in the visionaries quadrant by Gartner is a major milestone for the company and further confirmation of our innovative technology,” said Mike Jones, Vice President of Marketing at OutSystems. “This quadrant position by Gartner concludes a banner year for Outsystems and we consider it a reflection of our ongoing commitment to automate Agile methods and help our customers deliver applications that continuously address their ever-changing business needs--bridging the gap between IT and business across the entire application lifecycle.”
