For eight consecutive years, Tata Communications, a global digital ecosystem enabler, has been recognized as a Leader in the March 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global.
The Gartner evaluation is based on ‘the completeness of vision’ and ‘ability to execute’ in global network services as its report highlights that the market for global enterprise network services is “undergoing a generational shift in technologies and the provider landscape.”
Speaking on this recognition, Genius Wong, Chief Technology Officer, Tata Communications said: “We are humbled to be named a Leader for the eighth year in a row, especially for this last year which has been truly exceptional. We scaled up our network services and infrastructure almost overnight to move our customers’ employees to work remotely and shift workloads seamlessly across borders as part of their business continuity plans. As a result, we witnessed increased demand for network capacity, together with requirements for bespoke solutions that enabled efficient and secure remote working. Whether the focus is Cloud, Mobility, Security, IoT, or Business Collaboration, our Tier 1 network has evolved to facilitate the complex, global connectivity issues that businesses need to solve in this new environment.”
According to Gartner, most global network service providers are moving toward a more platform-based approach. By utilizing a software-driven, as-a-service model, their enterprise customers are offered increasing levels of visibility and self-service via portals and APIs.
