Wily Technology, the leader in Enterprise Java Application Management, announced today that Gartner, Inc. has positioned it in the leader quadrant in the J2EE Application Server Management Magic Quadrant, published on May 6, 2003. Gartner, Inc.'s Magic Quadrant positions vendors in a particular market segment based on their vision and ability to execute that vision. According to Gartner, Inc., leaders are vendors who are performing well today, have a clear vision of market direction and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.
Within the J2EE Application Server Management Magic Quadrant, characteristics of companies in the leader quadrant include extensive management visibility, advanced functionality, increasing ease-of-use features, broad support for a wide range of J2EE offerings as well as operating systems. Other factors are leadership in terms of installed base and customer satisfaction.
The J2EE Application Server Management Magic Quadrant is one of a series of Gartner reports in 2003 that highlight the growing demand for solutions to manage Web application performance.
With the increasing adoption of e-business applications, a need emerged for management of the end-to-end application platform stack, Gartner noted in its Application Management Key Issues report, published January 13, 2003. The report adds, Because of the increasing complexity in this area, there is an even-greater need for more management depth in key areas, particularly in application servers based on Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition and .NET.
We are honored by Wilys leader quadrant designation in the new J2EE Application Server Management Magic Quadrant and by the validation of our technology and strategic alliances to serve a growing base of Global 2000 customers, said Dick Williams, president and CEO of Wily Technology. From the start, our focus has been on providing enterprises with world-class management tools to help them deliver superior user experiences and high-performing Java applications that allow them, in turn, to better achieve their business goals.
The Magic Quadrant is copyrighted May 2003 by Gartner, Inc. and is reused with permission, which permission should not be deemed to be an endorsement of any company or product depicted in the quadrant. The Magic Quadrant is Gartner, Inc.s opinion and is an analytical representation of a marketplace at and for a specific time period. It measures vendors against Gartner defined criteria for a marketplace. The positioning of vendors within a Magic Quadrant is based on the complex interplay of many factors. Gartner does not advise enterprises to select only those firms in the Leaders quadrant. In some situations, firms in the Visionary, Challenger, or Niche Player quadrants may be the right matches for an enterprise's requirements. Well-informed vendor selection decisions should rely on more than a Magic Quadrant.
