Gideon Gartner a former financial analyst with Oppenheimer founded the Gartner, Inc. in the late 1970s. The company was born out of the fact that Gartner had an uncanny ability to predict what IBM would be doing in their next announcement.
Since then Gartner has been a ‘go to’ source for IT shops seeking to hedge their bets on what IT products or services they should buy. Recognizing the market opportunity behind this need for vendor rankings, Gartner developed its famous Magic Quadrant, Hype Cycle and predictions.
Unlike market forecasts which often have no real basis in reality or data, Gartner analysts talk to a lot of IT buyers and sellers. Earlier this month Gartner, Inc. released its “Top 10 Security Predictions – 2016”.
