Rackspace has been named a leader in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Professional and Managed Services, Worldwide, achieving the second highest score for ability to execute out of 19 companies in the Magic Quadrant assessment. This is the third consecutive year that the company has been positioned in the leader’s quadrant.
The Magic Quadrants are graphical representations of companies based on the completeness of their vision and their ability to execute that vision. High scores in both areas see companies named as a Leader in the field. Low scores in both see firms categorized as Niche Players, a high score for completeness of vision and a low score for ability to execute sees firms classed as Visionaries, and a high score for ability to execute and a low score for completeness of vision sees them categorized as Challengers.
The high score for completeness of vision is due to Rackspace constantly assessing the requirements of its customers and developing new services to meet those needs. The company develops comprehensive IT roadmaps, guidance on cloud migration, security and governance, and has significant platform expertise to ensure those services can be provided to customers to help them complete their digital transformations and accelerate the value of the cloud.
Rackspace has the most wide-ranging portfolio of managed services of all technology companies across infrastructure, data, security and applications, and delivers unbiased objective advice for its customers to help them achieve their cloud ambitions and navigate, operate, and optimize their environments to get the very best ROI.
“All companies are undergoing some level of digital transformation, attempting to leverage technology to deliver better business results,” said Rackspace CEO, Joe Eazor. “Rackspace is the trusted partner to help these companies bridge that gap between the complexities of business today and the promise of tomorrow.”
