We believe our position in the “Leaders” quadrant recognises our technology expertise, market competitiveness, commitment to our customers and determination to innovate. In our opinion it also validates our strategic focus on digital transformation and using IoT to address key industry challenges.
Gartner describes companies in the Leaders quadrant as: “Leaders perform skilfully and often exceed expectations. Leaders have a clear vision of the market’s direction and develop competencies to maintain their leadership. Leaders engage customers and provide value across multiple geographies. They shape the market, rather than follow it, and they often set the benchmark for market growth.”
“They have established a robust and diverse ecosystem of technology alliances and service delivery partnerships spanning IT, OT and IoT to meet broad market requirements.”
