Evaluation based on ‘completeness of vision’ and ‘ability to execute’
Mumbai (BSE) – March 7th 2018 – Tata Communications, a leading digital infrastructure provider, has been positioned by Gartner as a Leader in its 2018 Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global. The Magic Quadrant is designed by Gartner to examine how effectively providers meet the current needs of business in terms of both ‘completeness of vision’ and ‘ability to execute’, and 2018 marks the fifth year in a row that Tata Communications has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant.
James Parker, Chief Revenue Officer, Tata Communications, says, “Enterprises need to transform faster to maintain their relevance and competitiveness in this digital-first world. We believe Tata Communications’ continued placement as a Leader in the Network Services Magic Quadrant reflects our position as a partner-of-choice for businesses that want to leverage new generations of software-based network technologies to innovate faster, expand to new markets and unleash their full growth potential.”
According to Gartner, “In an era of increased digital business and cloud connectivity, enterprise demand for bandwidth and network access has never been stronger. This demand is heightened by enterprise requirements for video and the Internet of Things (IoT), and by the fact that organizations frequently struggle with application performance challenges when moving applications and computing/storage to the public cloud. Additionally, new workloads and new digital business initiatives require agile and scalable networks that can provide greater accessibility and reliability without exponentially increasing costs.”
Genius Wong, Chief Product Officer, Global Network and Cloud Infrastructure, Tata Communications, adds, “Ubiquitous, reliable, superfast connectivity – that brings organisations, their employees and customers together on a global scale and gives them seamless, secure access to data and applications – has become paramount. Through the latest additions to our cloud enablement platform, such as IZO™ Internet WAN, IZO™ hybrid WAN and IZO™ SDWAN, and our UCC services portfolio, including Global SIP Connect, we continue to make strides in reinventing enterprise IT for today’s cloud-first world. We will continue to build our capabilities harnessing our global network to help our customers detangle the complexity that the myriad of global connections, clouds and applications can bring.”
Gartner acknowledged Leaders as those which are “performing well today and maintain a stable organization with a clear vision of market direction. They deliver comprehensive portfolios of network services, across broad geographies, with good service quality. They address the global networking needs of a broad range of enterprises in terms of size, geographic distribution and vertical industry. Leaders shape the direction of the market by extending their coverage, developing new class-leading capabilities and new commercial models, and deploying these at scale”.
In the past year, Tata Communications has continued to invest in a broad range of service expansions reflecting the company’s on-going strategy to introduce new advanced managed services built on its strong network presence in the emerging and developed markets, including its portfolio of IP, cloud enablement, mobility, IoT and unified communications services, and a range of strategic partnerships.
Tata Communications owns and operates the world’s largest and most advanced subsea fibre cable network. Today, over 25% of the world’s Internet routes travel over Tata Communications’ network, and the company is the only Tier-1 provider that is in the top five by routes in five continents.
