By Eric Krueger, WW ITO Services Public Relations - HP
Most organizations will deal with the often unavoidable need to upgrade and modernize when it comes to the handling of their data center estates, moves that often require a significant investment in capital and resources. This has resulted in a current market trend of businesses striving for low-cost and industrialized infrastructure utility services. HP is one of many providers taking advantage of this opportunity by tailoring its current Data Center Outsourcing (DCO) and Infrastructure Utility Services (IUS) towards contemporary market requirements and to establish and maintain itself as a market leader in the field.
Although we have been an established market leader in DCO and IUS services sector for a while now, this doesn’t mean that we don’t still take pride in market recognition, especially when it comes from leading industry analyst firm Gartner, who positioned HP Enterprise Services in the “Leaders” quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for Data Center Outsourcing and Infrastructure Utility Services, Europe The report published on July 12th, 2011, reviewed 13 providers of Data Center Outsourcing and Infrastructure Utility Services in Europe. The report was authored by Claudio Da Rold, Gianluca Tramacere and Frank Ridder and covers leading service providers in Europe.
This Magic Quadrant graphic was published by Gartner, Inc. as part of a larger research note and should be evaluated in the context of the entire report. The Gartner report is available upon request from HP.
According to Gartner, “Leaders perform skilfully. They have a clear vision of the market’s direction and develop competencies to maintain their leadership. They shape the market, rather than follow it.”
