The IT services covered in this Magic Quadrant include maintenance and support, consulting, application development, integration and ongoing management of IT and related business processes. The COPS Magic Quadrant is focused exclusively on IT services related to network service solutions and communications systems.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Communications Outsourcing and Professional Services North America is available here, compliments of Black Box Network Services.
“Black Box’s strategic vision includes aggressively growing our managed, professional, and outsourcing services. Our customers know Black Box offers a single-provider approach that adds tremendous value to their communications strategy and operations. We are honored to be recognized in the COPS Magic Quadrant and look forward to continued success in this segment”, commented Terry Blakemore, President and CEO of Black Box Network Services.
Black Box offers a growing portfolio of managed and professional services including communications lifecycle services, hosted VoIP/Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), disaster recovery, network performance management and monitoring, SIP trunking, staff augmentation and outsourcing.
The evaluation criteria used for the COPS Magic Quadrant considered vendors’ ability to execute. Gartner examines the processes, methods, and procedures that enable providers to deliver these services as well as the completeness of vision surrounding market direction, innovation, customer needs, and competitive forces.
