IBM Cloud’s new boss is… blunt on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant

"It's paid-for advertising"

"Gartner is a fascinating organisation, it’s paid-for advertising, by all the companies that play into it”, Boville muses pointedly. “And within their Magic Quadrant, if you go to category king, they take the category king — which is AWS — they list all the features they’ve got and they compare you against that category king. We’re not a general purpose cloud, we’re focused on hybrid cloud.

"That’s what I believed in, in my entire time at Bank of America; as do my friends and peers in other institutions. Gartner don’t even recognise the term hybrid, I don’t know how they feel they can not recognise that term, when the people that spend money on IT do."
