HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global IT services company, today announced that it has been named a Leader in Gartner, Inc.’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Outsourcing and Infrastructure Utility Services, Europe*. The report evaluates the abilities of 17 service providers to deliver data center managed services across Europe including data center outsourcing (DCO) and infrastructure utility services (IUS), which are often enabled by remote infrastructure management services and increasingly based on managed virtual private cloud services and include public cloud with hybrid infrastructure managed capabilities and services. HCL changed from its position as a ‘Challenger’ in last year’s Magic Quadrant to become a ‘Leader’ in the 2016 report, in recognition of its furthered completeness of vision.
“We believe this recognition as one of the only six leaders in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is a testament to our position at the cutting edge of the European data center and infrastructure services market,” said Ashish Gupta, Corporate Vice President & Head of EMEA, HCL Technologies. “Our forward thinking approach to data center transformation has helped HCL to expand rapidly into the European market, resulting in a number of major deal wins over the last 12 months.”
According to Gartner*,“Leaders perform skillfully. They have a clear vision of the market's direction and develop competencies to maintain their leadership. They shape the market, rather than follow it.”
“HCL has worked tirelessly to create a wide ranging portfolio of products and services that provide us with strong hybrid data center and cloud management capabilities,” continued Ashish Gupta. “These services are underpinned by an automation led approach to next generation cloud transformation for clients, which is critical to the success of the new breed of digital businesses defined by HCL’s 21st Century Enterprise strategy. We believe that this unique approach is what makes HCL stand out as a leader.”
