CSC Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Outsourcing and Infrastructure Utility Services, North America
News Release -- September 15, 2016
TYSONS, Va., September 15, 2016 – CSC (NYSE: CSC), a global leader in next-generation IT services and solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc. (NYSE: IT), the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, has positioned CSC as a leader in its 2016 “Magic Quadrant for Data Center Outsourcing and Infrastructure Utility Services, North America” report.
Among 19 service providers to deliver data center managed services across North America, CSC is positioned as a leader for the sixth consecutive year by Gartner. This year CSC has been positioned the furthest for its “Completeness of Vision.” Completeness of Vision is judged using eight main criteria, including innovation, business model, offering strategy and vertical/industry strategy.
“We believe our leadership placement for the sixth consecutive year validates the significant acceptance and demand we have seen in digital transformation among our clients,” said Steve Hilton. “We also feel our positioning affirms the strength and vision of our cloud solutions and next-generation offerings, including the CSC Agility Platform.”
CSC provides independent hybrid cloud services that give clients the architecture best suited to their specific needs, as well as delivering traditional data center services in CSC or client data centers. The architecture can integrate on-premises data center and private cloud resources, as well as infrastructure from providers such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
A critical component of the agile hybrid cloud platform is establishing an on-premises cloud to bridge the gap between traditional IT delivery and a public cloud for workloads that can benefit from a cloud delivery model, but need to remain on-premises. For additional insights into these next-generation solutions, infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS), see CSC’s Journey to the Digital Enterprise position paper series.
