SILICON SLOPES, Utah, May 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AtTask, the only provider of cloud-based Enterprise Work Management solutions, today announced that the company has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of the Gartner Inc., 2014 Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Based IT Project and Portfolio Management Services.
"We feel the inclusion of AtTask for the third year in a row in the 'Leaders' quadrant is quite a remarkable accomplishment, and it coincides with the exceptional growth we experienced in 2013 and the first quarter of 2014," said Eric Morgan, CEO of AtTask. "We know that enterprise project teams are more complex than ever before, and unlike traditional project management tools, our tool is the only solution that provides enterprise teams with one, central place to manage all types of work through the entire work lifecycle. It's an honor to be recognized by Gartner as a leader in the space."
Not only has Gartner placed AtTask in the "Leaders" quadrant for the third year in a row, but AtTask was recently listed is the only Enterprise Work Management vendor to be positioned by Gartner in the "Magic Quadrant for Marketing Resource Management." Info-Tech Research Group also named AtTask a "Champion" in their 2014 Mid-Market Project and Portfolio (PPM) Vendor Landscape report.
The Gartner report states that, "Leaders share many attributes with technology providers rated as Visionaries and Challengers, but they are also differentiated by comparatively higher ratings in many areas, not just a few, with overwhelming customer references supporting their claims submitted as evidence. Consistency between a provider's stated strategy and product direction, and its execution (that is, integrity) is important, along with demonstrated vision, enabling the provider to address emerging and often vaguely defined market requirements."
Gartner evaluates vendors on 15 weighted criteria based on their relative strengths in the market, including: core goods and services; product capabilities, quality, feature sets and skills; product innovation, customer experience, product execution, marketing responsiveness, organizational business model, and financial stability.
AtTask will be sharing information about what makes its solution at Leader at the United States and United Kingdom Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit conferences this year. Come visit AtTask at booth 208 in National Harbor, MD, and booth PL7 in London, UK.
