Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems (WMS).

The Magic Quadrant is one of the best-known analysis tools developed by the Gartner market research company. For Warehouse Management, the Magic Quadrant is based on the latest analysis by Gartner and is known as the Gartner Magic Quadrant WMS.

The Gartner Magic Quadrant shows the extent to which companies in certain industries measure up against criteria defined by Gartner, and how those companies compare to their competitors on the global marketplace. Each year, companies included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant are analyzed to decide whether they are visionaries and players in their field. To be included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant, a company has to be bringing fresh inspiration to the market. A company listed in Gartner Magic Quadrant must also be able to successfully fill its leading role by executing its current vision.

Gartner distinguishes between the following positions on the market for WMS:

  • Gartner WMS Leaders (proven companies that are already successfully positioned on the market)
  • Gartner WMS Challengers (companies on track to displace leaders)
  • Gartner WMS Challengers (companies that offer innovative products)
  • Gartner WMS Niche Players (companies that are limited to clearly defined market segments)

To be included as a leading player in one of the Magic Quadrants published by Gartner, companies have to achieve the very best possible results. For Leaders, this means

  • The company is not just following the market, but also driving forward important developments.
  • The company has to be in an excellent financial and structural position, so that it can implement its own ideas and respond promptly and flexibly to market requirements.
  • The company must have already positioned itself permanently on the market and have particular credibility and high market share.
  • And the company must operate globally and make optimal use of modern technologies and platform support to continuously evolve and provide high-quality services to customers and business partners.
