• Visionary builds what dreamers imagined

    PSI Metals named a Visionary in 2018 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems” study.

Gartner Inc, the leading provider of global information technology research and analysis, has positioned PSImetals production management software in the Visionary Quadrant of its 2018 study “Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems.” 

The market research company evaluated the global market for Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and categorized those providers that met a strict inclusion criteria into a two-dimensional matrix. The four quadrants Challengers, Leaders, Visionaries and Niche Vendors each represent a type of company in the market and are designed to help customers select the software best suited to their needs. PSI Metals was included in the report for the first time and was placed in the Visionaries quadrant.

The key characteristics of a visionary are (Gartner’s definition):

  • A coherent, compelling and innovative strategy that seeks to deliver a robust and vibrant offering to the market.
  • A thought leader in one or more MES solution dimensions that tends to be on the leading edge of emerging concepts.
  • A yet undemonstrated ability to handle a broad range of complex user requirements.
  • Execution gaps or deficiencies.
  • Innovation in MES products and services, go-to-market, vertical or deployment strategies.
