Evaluation based on completeness of vision and ability to execute

NEW YORK, NY – August 4, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Dimension Data, the $6 billion global ICT services and solutions provider, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Niche Players quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting, North America; published July 15, 2014 by analysts Douglas Toombs, Lydia Leong, Tiny Haynes, Gregor Petri and Bob Gill.

According to the report, “Niche Players are typically specialists with more focused product portfolios, or are emerging vendors. They may serve one use case particularly well — better than a more generalized vendor.” For this Magic Quadrant, Gartner evaluated 17 managed hosting providers operating within North America, but were unable to include them all.

“We are pleased to be recognized as a strong player in the cloud-enabled managed hosting environment,” said Mark Slaga, CEO of Dimension Data Americas. “In the Americas and globally, Dimension Data’s cloud strategy is largely focused on our enterprise clients’ and service provider partners’ priorities, along with supporting independent software vendors to develop and strengthen their software-as-a-service capabilities. Our cloud business in the Americas has great momentum and scale, with recent investments in our Managed Cloud Platforms, OneCloud and InterCloud solutions.”

According to the report’s definition, “The cloud-enabled managed hosting market deals in standardized, productized hosting offerings that combine a cloud-enabled system infrastructure (CESI) platform — comprising compute, network and storage hardware — with cloud management platform software to facilitate self-service and rapid provisioning with managed services.” Previously titled Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Hosting, North America, this is the first Magic Quadrant with the new title and focus.
