Messaging Architects Named in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wireless Email Software: Platform Independence and Multi-Device Support Cited As Key Criteria in Comprehensive Research Report
Montreal, Canada (November 30, 2005) – Messaging Architects, a leader in the GroupWise space that helps organizations leverage the investment in their collaboration system through enterprise-class solutions that address the needs for policy, security, and mobility in the corporate infrastructure, announced that Gartner, the world's leading technology research and advisory firm, positioned Messaging Architects through its partnership with Extended Systems, now part of the Sybase iAnywhere division, in the "Niche" quadrant in the research firm’s highly regarded research report on enterprise-class wireless email software. The Gartner Magic Quadrant is an important research tool utilized by senior executives at large enterprises, network operators, device manufacturers, and software providers around the world.
Over the past year, the market for wireless email software has consolidated through some important acquisitions, including Sybase's acquisition of Extended Systems, leaving only a few vendors of "behind the firewall" software that meet the criteria of a real enterprise-class solution. The partnership between Messaging Architects and Extended Systems has enabled the OneBridge technology through the GWAnywhere solution to extend its reach to Novell GroupWise as the third major collaboration platforms to which it delivers email, in addition to Microsoft Exchange Server and Lotus Notes.
According to Gartner, wireless email use has grown aggressively during the past year, noting that wireless email is now considered a strategic infrastructure investment. The vendors covered in the Magic Quadrant for Wireless Email, such as Extended Systems and Messaging Architects, focus on addressing this need by expanding the scalability of their products, improving security, and developing additional ties to other enterprise systems.
"Gartner has a well-established reputation as a trusted advisor to whom decision makers considering wireless email solutions turn for counsel on how to successfully implement mobile business strategies," said Charles Nguyen, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Messaging Architects. "Messaging Architects is happy that our solution stood up to Gartner’s rigorous evaluation criteria."
