A1 Digital is a Niche Player in GARTNER’s Magic Quadrant for Managed IoT Connectivity Services, Worldwide
Munich/Vienna, 19 December 2019 GARTNER positions A1 Digital for the first time in a Magic Quadrant. As a digitalisation provider, A1 Digital is listed as one of 18 companies in the Managed IoT Connectivity Services sector, Worldwide as a Niche Player.
The dynamic digital change has fundamental effects on business models and processes in almost all sectors of the economy. This makes digitalization a strategic core issue with a view to safeguarding competitiveness in this environment. A1 Digital makes digitization tangible, supports companies in leveraging digital potential and turning it into business success. A1 Digital focuses on industry-specific applications in the area of Internet of Things (IoT), the European cloud platform Exoscale and a portfolio of security solutions. The company with head office in Vienna and branches in Munich and Lausanne has been on the market since 2017 and is positioned for the first time in the renowned GARTNER Magic Quadrant Managed IoT Connectivity Services, Worldwide. We believe our recognition as a Niche Player results from A1 Digital’s primarily European focus and the focus of its consulting services on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
A1 Digital is particularly convincing due to its above-average customer orientation. The experts at A1 Digital manage to turn complex interrelationships of digital transformation into business success and turn digitalization into reality. A1 Digital scores points with on-schedule project execution, high reliability and budget adherence thanks to transparent pricing models.
“Digitalisation drives business value”, says Dr. Elisabetta Castiglioni, CEO A1 Digital. “Many of our customers are in the middle of their transformation. Our mission is to help them leveraging their digital potential into tangible business results and stay relevant for the future. As their partner in this journey, we believe our absolute focus on our customers’ success is reflected in our positioning in the Gartner Magic Quadrant.” Francis Cepero, Director Vertical Market Solutions (VMS), responsible for IoT and Advanced Analytics, at A1 Digital, adds: “Finding the right digitalization partner is a matter of trust and therefore companies, especially SMBs should ask for hard evidence and validate successful references from their potential partners. We believe, with the Magic Quadrant for Managed IoT Connectivity Services, Worldwide, Gartner offers much needed guidance in a very crowded and fragmented market. We are humbled by Gartner’s acknowledgement and see this recognition as an incentive to do even more for our customers on their road to digital success.”
