Siemens Enterprise Communications announced today that it has been named by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in the 2013 Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications (UC).
According to Gartner, vendors in the Leader’s quadrant “have a full UC offering, strong market presence and demonstrate success in the field. They have a strong presence in related markets to expand their footprint in UC. These vendors and their channel partners have experience delivering UC to a broad range of enterprise types and into most geographic regions.”
Siemens Enterprise Communications is positioned as a Leader based on the company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute. Gartner judges a company’s completeness of vision based on current and future market direction, innovation, customer needs, and competitive forces, and how well these map to Gartner's overall evaluation of the market. Ability to execute is judged based on the quality, efficacy, and overall maturity of the products, systems, tools and procedures that enhance individual, group, and enterprise communications.
