"We believe Gartner’s recognition of Novell’s success in the Web access management market is underscored by the tremendous early interest we’ve seen for Novell Access Manager," said Jeff Jaffe, executive vice president and chief technology officer for Novell. (...)
Novell Access Manager addresses the key issue of access in the extended enterprise - the broad ecosystem of partners, customers and employees companies connect with on a daily basis.
In referring to the Leaders Quadrant of the report, Gartner wrote, "Acquisition integration has progressed, larger platform vendors have exploited their advantage in leveraging their own customer bases, and the lack of differentiation so glaringly illustrated in the leaderless Magic Quadrant in 2005 has ended. Vendors have found several different ways to establish leadership, including bundling identity federation and Web services IAM (Identity and Access Management) capabilities. (...)"
The positioning of vendors in Gartner’s Web Access Management Magic Quadrant is based on several criteria designed to measure strengths in both business and technical capabilities. Vendors are positioned in either the Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries or Niche Players quadrant. Gartner defines Leaders as those who are performing well today, have a clear vision of market directions and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.
