Flexera Recognized in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms for Second Consecutive Year
Flexera Placed Furthest to Right on Completeness of Vision Axis
Itasca, IL - February 25, 2020 Flexera, the company that helps organizations realize technology’s power to accelerate their business, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms. Gartner’s evaluation of Flexera’s Cloud Management Platform (CMP), part of its 2018 acquisition of RightScale, positions Flexera as the furthest to the right on completeness of vision for the second year in a row.
“It’s yet another thrilling moment for us at Flexera, as we’ve been Leaders in both the Magic Quadrant for CMP and Magic Quadrant for SAM Tools for the past two years,” said Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Flexera. “We believe this spotlights our commitment to innovating for our customers: we make it a priority to listen to what our customers want and need, and ensure we’re continually adding value to their business.
“When we purchased RightScale in 2018,” Ryan continued, “we pioneered the vision that combining the ability to manage complex on-premise and cloud environments would be a game-changer. With our acquisition of RISC Networks in 2019, we extended that vision to help companies assess their cloud migration opportunities. We’re in a unique position to help CIOs drive their digital transformation efforts due to our proven track record in complex and fast-changing IT environments.”
The Flexera 2020 State of Tech Spend Report found that the top initiative for IT leaders is digital transformation, followed by cybersecurity and cloud.
