Gartner defines an enterprise architecture (EA) tool as something that captures, stores, structures, analyzes, and presents information pertaining to EA and facilitates the implementation of a business strategy focused on business outcomes and risk mitigation.
According to Gartner, “Leaders provide mature offerings that meet market demand, and demonstrate the vision necessary to sustain their market position as requirements evolve. The hallmark of Leaders is that they focus on and invest in their offerings to the point that they lead the market and can affect its overall direction. As a result, Leaders can become the vendors to watch as you try to understand how new offerings might evolve. Leaders typically possess a large, satisfied customer base (relative to the size of the market) and enjoy high visibility within the market. Their size and financial strength enable them to remain viable in a challenging economy. Leaders typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements. However, they may fail to meet the specific needs of vertical markets or other more specialized segments.
“In this Magic Quadrant, the Leaders have a broad range of capabilities to support EA, combined with the ability to deliver these capabilities to a diverse group of stakeholders. Although each of the Leaders has different strengths, they all provide good capabilities to assist the EA mission to translate business vision and strategy into effective enterprise change. In addition, they have a clear vision of the direction and maturation of the EA discipline.”
