iGrafx®, a leading provider of Business Process Analysis (BPA) solutions, announced today that it is positioned within the Leaders Quadrant in Gartner Inc.’s “Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools” report, authored by David Norton, published on December 12, 2011.
Gartner defines Leaders as those that can provide mature offerings that meet market demand, as well as demonstrate the vision necessary to sustain their market position as requirements evolve. The hallmark of a Leader is that they focus on and invest in their offerings to the point that they lead the market and can affect its overall direction. As a result, Leaders can become the vendors to watch as you try to determine how new offerings might evolve. Leaders typically possess a large, satisfied customer base (relative to the size of the market), and enjoy high visibility within the market. Their size and financial strength enable them to remain viable in a challenging economy. Leaders typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements. However, they may fail to meet the specific needs of vertical markets or other, more-specialized segments.
“We are proud of our accomplishments and the recognition by Gartner for being a leader in the BPA marketplace”, said Ken Carraher, CEO of iGrafx. “We believe this confirms our position, underscores our drive towards excellence, and our commitment to provide best-in-class, cutting-edge products. We continue to focus on not only addressing the current needs of our customers, but to also provide innovations that support their pursuit of process excellence.”
Gartner reports that business process analysis tools continue to grow in importance as business managers, process architects and process analysts seek to better understand, streamline and automate their business processes, and to communicate their needs to IT professionals.
