     About the Magic Quadrant
     The Magic Quadrant is copyrighted September 2002 by Gartner, Inc. and is
 reused with permission. Gartner's permission to print its Magic Quadrant
 should not be deemed to be an endorsement of any company or product depicted
 in the quadrant. The Magic Quadrant is Gartner's opinion and is an analytical
 representation of a marketplace at and for a specific time period. It measures
 vendors against Gartner-defined criteria for a marketplace. The positioning of
 vendors within a Magic Quadrant is based on the complex interplay of many
 factors. Gartner does not advise enterprises to select only those firms in the
 Leaders segment. In some situations, firms in the Visionary, Challenger, or
 Niche Player segments may be the right match for an enterprise's requirements.
 Well-informed vendor selection decisions should rely on more than a Magic
 Quadrant. Gartner research is intended to be one of many information sources
 and the reader should not rely solely on the Magic Quadrant for decision-
 making. Gartner expressly disclaims all warranties, express or implied of
 fitness of this research for a particular purpose.
