Innovate or Die: Key takeaways from the edge at Gartner’s Infrastructure and Operations Conference 2019

One of the highlights of Gartner’s recent Infrastructure and Operations Conference 2019 was the opening keynote. If I had to sum up what Gartner’s three expert presenters covered in three words they would be: “Innovate or die.”

Frankly, this is no big shock. Gartner (as well as IDC and Forrester) have been preaching about digital transformation for years – decades even. However, it is the accelerating pace of change that had everyone at IOCS 2019 really beating this “war drum” even louder and harder.

Acronis DRaaS Earns Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice

Customer satisfaction is the single most important aspect of any business as it leads to additional sales, reputational growth, and “word of mouth” recommendations. That’s why Acronis is honored to be named an October 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for its Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offering.

Moreover, in the corresponding “Voice of the Customer” report that synthesizes these results, Acronis is the only company listed in the Customers’ Choice Quadrant among all companies profiled.

We think this recognition from actual users of our solution is particularly noteworthy considering Acronis was not included in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service this past June.

Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Backup

When Gartner announced the 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice awards for Data Center Backup and Recovery products last week, the foresight and vision displayed by Acronis generated a surprise appearance. That’s because unlike the other six vendors recognized as a Customers’ Choice, Acronis was not covered in Gartner’s previous Magic Quadrants for Backup and Recovery.

Instead, Acronis earned the recognition as Peer Insights Customers’ Choice because actual product users submitted enough high-quality testimonials and scores to get the company added to the awards list.

Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Data Center Backup and Recovery Software

While we are always happy to see industry analysts and media praise our solutions, the real measure of success is earning the respect of IT pros who need to find the best data protection for their organizations. That’s why Acronis is honored to be named one of The Best Enterprise Data Server Recovery and Backup Software of 2018 in the 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Data Center Backup and Recovery Software.
