For the fourth consecutive year, Siemens has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. furthest to the right for its completeness of vision and highest for its ability to execute in the Leaders quadrant in its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Meter Data Management Products for its Meter Data Management (MDM) product, Siemens EnergyIP.*

In the Magic Quadrant, Gartner, a leading worldwide IT research and advisory firm, evaluates vendors based completeness of vision and ability to execute. In this 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant, companies were assessed on ability to execute, covering aspects such as product or service, overall viability, sales execution/pricing, market responsiveness/record, marketing execution, customer experience, and operations, along with completeness of vision, covering aspects such as market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy, offering (product) strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy, innovation, and geographic strategy.

“We believe this recognition by Gartner for the fourth straight year in the Leaders quadrant of this Magic Quadrant is a clear indication of our ability to evolve our meter data management technology with this ever-changing energy marketplace,” said Mike Carlson, president of Siemens Digital Grid, North America. “With nearly 75 million smart devices under contract globally, we will continue to invest in and develop robust metering technologies that support advanced metering infrastructures and help our customers remain agile in an increasingly digitalized landscape.”
