Siemens has been named for the second year in a row by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems. Gartner is a leading worldwide IT research and advisory firm. Each year, Gartner evaluates vendors and displays evaluations in the Magic Quadrant. In this year’s Gartner MES Magic Quadrant, companies were again assessed on “Ability to Execute”, covering aspects such as products or service, overall viability, market responsiveness/record, marketing execution, operations and customer experience along with “Completeness of Vision”, which scores aspects such as product strategy, innovation, understanding of market and industry verticals. Siemens was positioned furthest to the right for its completeness of vision.
