Software Composition Analysis (SCA) Market Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the new Software Composition Analysis (SCA) market on Gartner Peer Insights?

Currently, all existing Gartner Peer Insights markets use market definitions that are published in Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) or Gartner Market Guide (MG) documents. Through interviews and testing, end-users have expressed the need for additional markets.

As part of our effort to expand Gartner Peer Insights to cover additional products/solutions that have high user interest, we are piloting new markets on Peer Insights that Gartner Research has defined, analyzed and advised users about but that are currently represented in research and documents other than MQs and MGs.

Software Composition Analysis (SCA) was selected due to high user interest in and engagement with Gartner expert research on this market.

2. Why were my products/services included?

Your product/service was added to this market because it meets the following inclusion criteria for this market:

  • The Vendor product or service must have at least half (50% or more) of the capabilities or services identified by Gartner expert research for this market.
  • The Vendor must sell the product to mid to large-size enterprise clients.

3. My product was moved from an “Others” market to this one. What is the impact?

All reviews previously associated with the “Others” market have been migrated to the new Software Composition Analysis (SCA) market accordingly. These products are now able to be compared to other similar products from competitors in the same market.

4. Is this market eligible for the Gartner Peer Insights “Voice of the Customer” research document?
