All of us at Flexera are incredibly proud to announce that Flexera has been named as a Leader in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Software Asset Management Tools!

For the second time Gartner positioned Flexera as a market “Leader” (upper right quadrant) because of our Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute. Flexera (RightScale) was also a Leader in the 2019 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms.

But as proud as we are for being a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader for the second year in a row, we are even prouder of our scores in all SAM functionality use cases in the 2019 Gartner Critical Capability for SAM tools report and that Flexera was named a Jan. 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Software Assets Management Tools for the second time, based on feedback from verified reviews we received on Gartner Peer Insights from customers and users of our solutions.

What are the SAM functionality Use Cases in the Critical Capabilities Report?

The report looks at five different functionality use cases for Software Asset Management tool buyers:

  • PC and Mobile Licensing
  • On-Premise Licensing
  • Complex Licensing in Hybrid Environments
  • Complex Licensing in Cloud Primary Environments
  • IT/OT Licensing

So how did we do?

Flexera scored highest for all five use cases. In addition to Flexera’s traditional focus for on-premises SAM, the increased focus on cloud and SaaS licensing are represented in the use cases.

Our leadership among SAM suppliers is not by accident. We’ve always led through innovation. As enterprises increasingly adopt SaaS and public cloud technologies, we have also significantly expanded our portfolio to offer solutions that help customers optimize and govern their full hybrid IT landscape.

Flexera also takes a customer-first approach to ensure customer success—a quality noted in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Software Asset Management, April 2019 report.

Thanks again for making us #1
