TietoEnator positioned in the challengers quadrant for 1Q06 integration service providers magic quadrant


30 January 2006, TietoEnator, the leading Integration Service Provider in Europe, has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Challengers quadrant in the ’Magic Quadrant for Integration Service Providers (ISP), 1Q06’ report. Evaluation based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“We consider this to be an acknowledgement of being one of the main integration service providers”, says Jyrki Poteri, Vice President, TietoEnator Value Networks. “TietoEnator will invest in business growth, new innovative services and expansion from the Nordic region to new markets in Europe. Gartner’s analysis has deepened our understanding about the market needs and it will help us to further develop our offering.”

According to the report, Challengers are serving their users and executing well overall, but they are not strongly differentiated enough and do not have enough resources or commitment to the market to be recognized as innovators and agents for change in this market segment. Challengers appeal to relatively risk-averse users whose B2B project requirements are well met by the vendors’ mature but generally less-differentiated B2B solution or approach.*

TietoEnator’s integration service provider (ISP) offering covers both business-to-business (B2B) services and enterprise application integration (EAI), giving a capability for end-to-end services in business process integration. With an international staff of 150 persons dedicated to integration services and one million B2B transactions daily, TietoEnator is one of the leading integration service providers in Europe.
