Tata Communications has been positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global, for the sixth consecutive year. This Magic Quadrant examines network service providers and their offerings, assessing them in terms of their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
According to the report, “In the past 12 months, Gartner has observed continued evolution of enterprise requirements and buying criteria for global networks. Enterprises are focusing on increasing the agility of their networks and on services that can enable their adoption of cloud IT delivery and eventual adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). This is leading to most new global networks being based on SD-WAN and making greater use of the internet as a primary WAN transport.”
Anthony Bartolo, Chief Product Officer, Tata Communications, said: “As enterprises look to transform how they operate and engage with their customers by leveraging the cloud and the latest digital platforms, they need a rock-solid foundation for these new services – and that’s what our network is. Innovations such as AI and IoT open up a world of possibilities for businesses, but they can also add complexity at the network level. Our global network services detangle this complexity, and enable our customers to accelerate their digital transformation to boost their competitiveness.”
According to Gartner, “The market for global network services continues its rapid evolution. In response to enterprise demand for WANs that can support cloud IT delivery and achieve much higher levels of agility, network service providers (NSPs) have been deploying a range of new software-based networking services. They are also changing their business models to allow for more flexible sourcing. This Magic Quadrant focuses on these transformational technologies and/or approaches that deliver on the future needs of the enterprise, rather than simply concentrating on legacy services.”
