Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that the company was recognized as a Leader in the Gartner 2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Asset Management Software for Infor EAM.
According to Gartner, "Leaders combine the characteristics of vision and thought leadership with a strong ability to execute. Leaders in the EAM market are present in a high percentage of EAM evaluations, and they win a significant number of them. They have robust core functionality and offer reasonable - although not necessarily leading-edge - capabilities in extended EAM areas. To be a Leader, a vendor doesn't necessarily need to have the absolute broadest or deepest EAM application. Its offerings must meet most mainstream maintenance requirements in complex industries without significant modifications, and references must be available to validate this. Leaders must anticipate where customer demands, markets and technology are moving, and must have strategies to support these emerging requirements ahead of actual customer demand. Leading vendors should have coherent strategies to support IoT and OT integration and APM, and must invest in, and have processes to exploit, innovation. Leaders also have market momentum and strong client satisfaction - both in the vendor's local markets, as well as internationally. Because Leaders are often well-established in leading-edge and complex user environments, they benefit from a user community that helps them remain in the forefront of emerging needs."(2)
