Gartner, Inc. (NYSE: IT) is the world’s leading research and advisory company and a member of the S&P 500. Its mission is to equip business leaders with insights, advice and tools to achieve their mission-critical priorities today and build the successful organizations of tomorrow.

Gartner is known for its Magic Quadrants, which offer visual snapshots, in-depth analyses and actionable advice that provide insight into a market’s direction, maturity and participants. Magic Quadrants compare vendors based on Gartner’s standard criteria and methodology. Each report comes with a Magic Quadrant graphic that depicts a market using a two-dimensional matrix that evaluates vendors based on their Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute.

In 2018, Recovery Point has been recognized as a Challenger in the Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and placed highest for the ability to execute among all vendors in Gartner’s Critical Capabilities document.

Recovery Point Advantage

DRaaS has revolutionized the way organizations build resilience into every aspect of their operations and has minimized expensive IT disruptions in today’s always-on world. These programs deliver simplicity through orchestration, automation and rapid provisioning of end-to-end software-defined resilience solutions.

In addition to protecting operations against the impact of disaster events, hardware failure, human error, cyber-attacks or even planned outages, DRaaS can help drive down RTOs and RPOs and align resilience posture with regulatory and compliance requirements.

  • Technology agnostic solutions designed to meet RTO/RPO requirements
  • Enterprise security architected from the ground up
  • Fully managed service options to reduce resource requirements

What are the characteristics of a Challenger?

This year Gartner recognized Recovery Point as a Challenger in the Magic Quadrant for DRaaS. What does that mean?

Gartner Magic Quadrants are based on rigorous, fact-based analysis backed by a highly structured methodology. Challengers execute well today and often dominate a large market segment. They are a serious threat to vendors in the Leaders quadrant. Products are strong and they hold a sufficiently credible market position with resources to sustain continued growth. Financial viability is not an issue for vendors in the Challengers quadrant.

Magic Quadrant criteria changes from year to year. Over time, companies may fluctuate between the Challengers and Leaders quadrants as their product cycles and market needs shift.

What is a Gartner Critical Capabilities document?

Recovery Point placed highest for the ability to execute among all vendors in the Critical Capabilities document. What does that mean?

Critical Capabilities is an essential companion to the Magic Quadrant. A Critical Capabilities helps Gartner clients gain a view of the positioning of vendors’ product and service offerings, allowing comparison against a critical set of differentiators to support their strategic technology investment decisions. It shows which products or services are the best fit in various use cases and provides actionable advice to end-user clients on which products/services they should add to their vendor shortlists for further evaluation.
