According to Gartner, the vendors in the "positive" category are "aggressively investing to develop BI, information analysis, PM (Project Management) and IM solutions to meet client needs. The service providers evaluated have a strong understanding of what needs to be done to grow their solution offerings  for information analysis, PM and IM solutions."

Service providers in this MarketScope are evaluated on capabilities and offerings that span Gartner's Business Analytics framework, which establishes the elements necessary to execute a complete program.
