Get An Inside Look At How Gartner Produces the Magic Quadrant

February 8, 2011 No Comments

As you may know, LogiXML was positioned in the 2011 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence.  You may also already know that that Gartner’s highly regarded Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence is based on Gartner’s evaluation of a company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute.  But Lydia Leong, a Gartner Research Director, recently wrote a detailed explanation of the process that Gartner follows each year in producing their report.  If you want an inside look at how the Magic Quadrant is produced each year, you should take a look at her post.

Here’s how she begins:

“A Magic Quadrant starts its life with a market definition and inclusion criteria. It’s proposed to our group of chief analysts (each sector we cover, like Software, has a chief), who are in charge of determining what markets are MQ-worthy, whether or not the market is defined in a reasonable way, and so forth. In other words, analysts can’t decide to arbitrarily write an MQ, and there’s oversight and a planning process, and an editorial calendar that lays out MQ publication schedules for the entire year.”  Read her full post.
