Melbourne IT gets global 'challenger' ranking from Gartner

06 Mar 17

Melbourne IT has garnered itself a ‘challenger’ ranking in Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Service Providers.

The company, which has a enterprise dedicated division, says while the scope of the assessment was related to global managed service providers, it was able to achieve the Challenger position despite being focused only on the Australian market.

Peter Wright, Melbourne IT executive general manager, says being positioned as a challenger in the Magic Quadrant is great recognition of the company’s experience and capability in providing market leading cloud solutions to customers.

“Australian businesses have always been rapid adopters of new technology and it is pleasing to see local organisations can choose a local partner in the public cloud managed services market with a proven ability to execute in the managed cloud market,” Wright says.

“When coupled with our expertise across mobile, data and analytics and security, this reinforces Melbourne IT’s position as Australia’s most impactful technology business.”

The company has a range of cloud-based technology services, with offerings extending from small business to large enterprise and government, including web hosting, application development services, managed cloud and security services.

Steve McCormick, Melbourne IT cloud services practice executive director, says the company provides the people, experience and tooling to fuel the competitiveness of business through the effective use of digital technologies.

“By migrating and managing market facing systems in the cloud and breaking up monolithic legacy applications to logical component parts, Melbourne IT’s cloud services can help organisations become more competitive and respond more rapidly to market changes and customer needs,” McCormick says.
