Achieving your Best Possible Assessment in the Gartner IT Vendor Risk Management Tools (IT VRM) Magic Quadrant.

Getting your company recognized in the IT VRM Tools Magic Quadrant can reap huge rewards for your business and help grow your sales pipeline. But it isn’t easy.

If you can answer yes to any of these questions:

  • Are your competitors getting better results — even when their product is inferior?
  • Are you struggling to ‘move the dot’ in your MQ?
  • Do your references seem to say something different when they talk to you and the analysts?
  • Want to be included in the next version of this MQ?

Rating for Magic Quadrant

“We used The Skills Connection to prepare a Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) briefing deck with the aim of moving our dot. We also utilized them to discuss messaging with the analysts when we had a CEO change and an impending lawsuit with an industry giant and one of our technology partners mid-way through the MQ process.”

We often hear these challenges and understand that it can be really frustrating
