Gartner, Inc. recently positioned Oracle’s Siebel CRM in the Leaders Quadrant of its 2010 reports “Magic Quadrant for CRM Multichannel Campaign Management” (1) and “Magic Quadrant for CRM Customer Service Contact Centers” (2).
Gartner Magic Quadrants position vendors within a particular market segment based on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute on that vision.
Magic Quadrant for CRM Multichannel Campaign Management

According to Gartner, the leaders in CRM Multichannel Campaign Management, “consistently do considerably better in overall campaign management performance for basic and advanced campaign management, as well as for integration with e-marketing. Leaders have high market visibility, high market penetration, strong market momentum and a strategic vision for growing the campaign management business.”
Magic Quadrant for CRM Customer Service Contact Center

According to Gartner, the leaders in CRM Customer Service Contact Centers, “demonstrate market-defining vision and the ability to execute against that vision through products, services, demonstrable sales figures and solid new references for multiple geographies and vertical industries. Clients report that the vendors deliver a high level of value and return on their commitment. The development team has a clear vision of the implications of business rules, and the impact of social networking on customer service requirements. A characteristic of a leader is that clients look to the vendor for clues as to how to innovate in customer service. The vendor does not necessarily drive a customer toward vendor lock-in, but rather provides openness to an ecosystem. When asked, their clients reply that this product has affected the organization's competitive position in their markets and helped lower costs.”
