On Monday, it was announced that Gartner had positioned IBM as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms. The new report puts IBM in the Leaders Quadrant, as measured by completeness of vision and execution ability of IBM Worklight, which represents IBM’s mobile application development platform. Purchased by IBM in February of last year, IBM Worklight is a member of the IBM MobileFirst family of solutions. In only one year, IBM has moved up from the Niche Quadrant to the Leaders Quadrant.
Monday’s announcement follows a series of impressive showings for IBM MobileFirst services and software capabilities, among which include IBM Worklight in Gartner Magic Quadrants this summer.
