Arrow Electronics (NYSE: ARW) today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for IT Asset Disposition, Worldwide.”1
“We consider our ‘Leaders’ positioning in the ‘IT Asset Disposition, Worldwide’ quadrant by Gartner confirmation of our ITAD capabilities,” said Mark Majeske, president of Arrow’s global reverse logistics business. “Our goal is to bring complete end-of-life processing and remarketing services to enterprise clients in the global marketplace, where data security is paramount."
Gartner evaluates ITAD vendors on their “Ability to Execute” and “Completeness of Vision.” The analysis involves a heavy emphasis on client feedback, as Gartner considers this component to be one of the most important measures of a vendor’s success, as well as an important factor in the scoring.
Identified “Leaders” are those companies that execute well against a robust vision, and are well-positioned for the future. As a result, they have the highest scores for “Ability to Execute” and “Completeness of Vision.”
Gartner does not endorse any vendor, product or service depicted in its research publications, and does not advise technology users to select only those vendors with the highest ratings.
