Gartner Inc. has placed Verizon Business in the Leaders quadrant of the firm’s new report, “Magic Quadrant for Communications Outsourcing and Professional Services, North America.”
For the report, Gartner examined 17 U.S.-based providers of IT services for business communications systems. Within the report, leaders are firms that “affect competitors by the choices they make in enabling technology and service offerings, their focus on the enterprise and targeted vertical segments, and their capability to differentiate value, price and service levels to be first to market with relevant products,” the report states.
“We view communications outsourcing and professional services as key to helping customers achieve the benefits of unified communications and collaboration,” said Kerry Bailey, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Business. “Our leading managed services platform and advanced managed mobility offerings continue to set us apart from the competition, and we continue to capitalize on our key strengths as Verizon Business moves to an ‘everything-as-a-service’ model.”
