Gartner recently published the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Managed Network Services (MNS) which identified ATSG Optanix as a Leader for MNS. This is the first time that the company has been named a Leader in the Magic Quadrant, after two consecutive years as a Challenger.

Placement in the MNS Magic Quadrant is based on Gartner analysts’ evaluation of ATSG Optanix’s ability to execute and its completeness of vision among the vendors in the MNS market.

Evaluation of ATSG Optanix’s Managed Network Services by Gartner

According to Gartner, “a provider in the Leaders quadrant demonstrates the ability to fulfill a broad variety of customer requirements through the breadth of its MNS offerings. Leaders have the ability to shape the market and provide complete and differentiating services, as well as global service and support Leaders maintain strong relationships with their channels and customers, and have no obvious gaps in their portfolios.”

“One of the evaluation criteria is Market Responsiveness/Record which talks about Ability to respond, change direction, be flexible and achieve competitive success as opportunities develop, competitors act, customer needs evolve and market dynamics change. This criterion also considers the vendor’s history of responsiveness.”

Gartner estimates that by the end of 2024, 35% of enterprise buyers will demand MNS services to include near-real-time case management and consistently maintained data repository (CMDB) synchronization with enterprise IT service management (ITSM) tools.

We believe ATSG Optanix’s MNS offering takes an integrated organizational approach that combines people, processes and technology into a comprehensive service assurance solution. It occupies a unique space in the market as a longtime managed service provider with its own internally developed full-stack service assurance platform and global delivery model, providing customers with real-time dashboards and ITSM integrations.
