Re: Opening Doors
Excellent article about a Catch 22 situation in the IT space, Gartner needs to sell some services in-order to generate revenue to pay their analysts. The greater a partnership, the greater Gartner knows about the vendor and the vendor would gain valuable feedback from a firm that understands a number of players in the market -- helping to improve the vendor's business process -- increasing their revenue. In turn, the vendor would be ranked with 5 stars rather than, 4 stars.
And, all this is in the IT space, meaning, in two years the market would have already shifted towards a new trend.
It would be interesting to see how the law deals with this situation and the timeframe that is required. I feel NetScout has the capital at hand to improve their business. Otherwise, they would have not indulged in a lawsuit. However, I feel, it would have been better if they had taken up the services of a third-party analysis firm and tested it for a year to see if any positive movement was taking place for their firm in Gartner Magic Quadrant.
