The report, by analysts Jouni Forsman, Norbert J. Scholz and Amresh Nandan, published on July 14, 2016, evaluated VirtusaPolaris among communications service providers (CSPs).
The Magic Quadrant report evaluated 17 vendors who have expertise in discrete and multiyear engagements around CSPs’ operational IT in a multiregional context. The assessment takes into account the vendors’ current offerings and overall strategies, as well as their future initiatives and product roadmaps.
According to Gartner, “The market for IT services for CSPs is evolving as CSPs’ operational environment changes. Cost-efficiency is important but the focus is clearly on enabling additional business benefits for CSPs in the spirit of bimodal IT.”
