The Gartner Magic Quadrant, which is created by the global advisory firm Gartner, is a graphical representation that illustrates the competitive value of the world’s principal technology vendors. Gartner bases its research on eligible companies on two simple criteria: how well-rounded their vision is, and how well it is put into practice. These evaluations then take shape in a graph, which is divided into four quadrants:

Leaders have the highest composite scores for their vision and their ability to put it into practice;

Challengers actively participate in the marketplace, performing well enough to pose a major threat to suppliers in the leader quadrant;

Visionaries offer innovative products that tackle operational or financially important problems for end users on a large scale;

Niche players are often focused on particular market segments or verticals.
