For the third year in a row, Gartner, Inc. has positioned Sungard AS in the "Leaders" quadrant of its Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service1 (DRaaS)
Gartner evaluated 23 Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) providers for this year's Magic Quadrant. Service providers were evaluated against their ability to execute – to provide a DRaaS offering that meets customer feature/function requirements, as well as the provider's ability to operate the tool with a high level of service guarantee and customer support – and a completeness of vision – the ability to understand customer needs and translate them into products and services. Vendors that show a clear vision of their market listen, understand customer demands, and can shape or enhance market changes with their added vision.
According to Gartner, the firms in the "Leaders" quadrant of the DRaaS Magic Quadrant have "large, mature DRaaS practices. These players have significant industry experience, global capabilities, a focus on DRaaS as a stand-alone offering, and industry-leading vision with respect to meeting the needs of its intended target customer segments."
