Gartner Sets its 2014 Business Continuity Management and IT Disaster Recovery Management Agenda

by Roberta J. Witty  |  February 26, 2014  |  2 Comments

The Gartner Business Continuity Management and IT Disaster Recovery Management agenda has been set for 2014 and we are excited to bring to our clients the following branded research reports.

  • Q1/2014: Magic Quadrant for Emergency/Mass Notification Services
  • Q2/2014: Cool Vendors in Business Continuity Management, 2014
  • Q3/2014: Hype Cycle for  IT Service Continuity Management, 2014
  • Q3/2014: Hype Cycle for Business Continuity Management and  IT Disaster Recovery Management, 2014
  • Q3/2014: Magic Quadrant for Business Continuity Management Planning Software
  • Q3/2014: Recovery Orchestration Automation Market Guide
  • Q4/2014: Predicts 2015: Business Continuity Management and IT Disaster Recovery Management
  • Q4/2014: Magic Quadrant for RaaS

Every year, Gartner published a number of spotlight reports. Our BCM and IT DRM research areas have been participating in these spotlights since 2009. These reports include: Cool Vendors, Hype Cycles and Predicts. We will again participate in these annual spotlights and add a new Hype Cycle for IT Service Continuity Management.

We also produce market-based reports and in 2014, we will again provide such research in 2014.

  • Three magic quadrants (emergency/mass notification services (EMNS), BCM planning software (BCMP) and Recovery-as-a-Service (RaaS)) where we compare vendors in a market according to the Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision.
  • A Market Guide for Recovery Orchestration Automation. A Market Guide provides a definition of a market, market dynamics and a view of the market participants. More specifically, a Market Guide provides coverage for markets in which vendors cannot be rated or ranked because the market:
    • Is still in the early stages of its development cycle and can be described as:
      • Still evolving, with purchasing decisions not yet common
      • Being characterized by disruption
      • Not having a stable set of vendors
      • Not having vendors with established, distinct capabilities that can be rated or ranked yet
      • Or, is mature enough to begin evaluating and ranking vendors; however, there is not sufficient coverage or priority to conduct the significant primary research needed, but client interest or impact warrants some coverage.

Some documents may not be available as part of your current Gartner subscription.
