BOSTON--()--Gartner, Inc. named MEGA as a leader positioned highest in ability to execute in its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools report, published September 30, 2014.

For six consecutive years, Gartner has named MEGA as a leader in its enterprise architecture (EA) tools Magic Quadrant reports.

The EA software that Gartner analyzed in the report is just one offering in MEGA’s broad range of integrated solutions that help companies manage enterprise complexity, navigate business transformation, boost operational effectiveness and efficiency, and improve business performance.

MEGA was one of 13 companies analyzed in the Gartner report and placed in four quadrants: leaders, visionaries, challengers, and niche players. Gartner evaluates EA solutions as a way to aid companies in assessing potential software solutions that can help them make strategic business decisions.

Gartner’s criteria for analyzing companies in the report required them to have:

  • tools that are positioned to address the Gartner-defined EA tool marketplace and possess the critical capabilities described in the market definition/description section
  • active customer production deployments in at least two vertical industries
  • an active market presence (subsidiary or official partner) in North America, Europe and the Asia/Pacific region
  • active customers in production for at least two of the three regions mentioned above

“Used effectively, EA tools enable organizations to meet the challenges facing businesses by capturing, integrating, and analyzing information to enable business decisions,” said the report, authored by Saul Brand, research director at Gartner.

“Vendors are focusing on how EA tools deliver targeted business outcomes to their customers. Key enhancements in this regard include a greater focus on enterprise business and information architectures, as well as enhanced organizational stakeholder collaboration capabilities that facilitate strategic decision making,” the report continued.

For more than 20 years, MEGA solutions have helped government agencies and corporations worldwide improve business performance and manage risks. MEGA customers include Aetna, Banque Accord, Choice Hotels, The College Board, Nissan, Procter & Gamble, Starwood Hotels, Swiss Federal Railways, UniCredit Group and Walgreens.

“Our customers, in finance, energy, healthcare, transportation, retail, manufacturing, technology, hospitality and other industries, have improved business results, reduced risks, and increased profitability by applying our software solutions,” noted Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA. “We believe the recognition of our leadership in strategic software solutions demonstrates that our approach of offering integrated business management solutions is valued by prominent end user organizations, as well as analysts.”

MEGA’s software enables business transformation by helping companies gain a shared view of the enterprise that provides insight and information that executives require to navigate business transformation, make better decisions, and align operations with strategy.

“Companies need proven ways to transform their business to meet the complex challenges of today’s constantly shifting markets and opportunities,” explained de Risi. “Software solutions that help enterprises apply their resources in the most strategic manner help them grow faster and more profitably. We provide the means for our customers to explore the areas of enterprise transformation that require insight, and help them shape, reshape and reinvent themselves in ways that fulfill their strategic goals.”
