EDICOM debuts strongly in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for “Integration Brokerage”
The report highlights major strengths such as the company's financial situation, consolidated and sustained growth over time, process efficiency and a dominant position in Central Europe and Latin America, or its global Electronic Invoicing solutions.
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant: Key reference for major multinationals
EDICOM, international provider of solutions for business data integration between companies, is acknowledged by prestigious technology consultants Gartner INC as a top ranking “Challenger” in the “Magic Quadrant for Integration Brokerage” published in April 2014.
The Gartner study carries out a meticulous analysis of several variables from a set of benchmark suppliers, positioning them on a conceptual map which gauges two fundamental aspects:
Quality, efficiency and efficacy of working processes, methods and systems.
Business strategy in the mid-to long-term to ensure sustainability and future growth.
The number of suppliers analysed by Gartner is limited, and the criteria for determining which partners appear are very strict, governed by aspects such as the ability to maintain minimum sales levels, the international nature of the provider, their degree of specialization in data integration technologies, availability of consolidated platforms in SaaS mode, or having a robust B2B communications infrastructure.
Through its different editions, the report has become a benchmark used by some of the world’s biggest companies to assess the skills, strengths and weaknesses of different partners. Today, it is a key consulting tool used by large multinational corporations when selecting technology suppliers for their EDI projects, electronic billing and systems integration in general.
EDICOM, new benchmark provider in Magic Quadrant
The previous version of “Magic Quadrant” dates from 2009. Among the new businesses analysed in the updated edition for 2014, EDICOM stands out as the most advanced “Challenger”.
EDICOM’s presence in this study is the result of the expansion and consolidation process initiated over a decade ago through various strategic plans, leading to today's position as an international technology provider of reference, specializing in large-scale international data integration projects.
The Gartner report especially rated EDICOM’s domination of certain regional markets such as Europe and Latin America, where the firm technically holds an outstanding leadership position.
A thorough knowledge of international electronic billing systems and the financial soundness and robustness of its business model are some of the other strengths that have made EDICOM worthy of this debut among the select group of companies making up “Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Integration Brokerage”
