What You Need to Know About Gartner’s IP Address Management Magic Quadrant


According to Gartner, more than 60% of DNS, DHCP, and IPAM (DDI) initiatives have IPAM as their main driver. Over 75% of enterprise networks still manually manage their IP address space using spreadsheets, custom software, or a combination of the two. Network administrators can work more effectively thanks to IPAM solutions. Important features include tiered administration, identifying IP address space inventory shortfalls and prospective problems, and automating workflow procedures (senior-level administrators delegate tasks and sign off on changes performed by lower-level administrators).

The main reason for buying DDI solutions in about 40% of businesses is to increase DNS and/or DHCP stability. A DDI project is frequently used by businesses to combine many DNS name server environments (such as Windows DNS and Bind) into a single DNS name server platform. The same strategy can be used to combine various servers (such as Windows DHCP and router-based DHCP) into a single DHCP server.  Due to the absence of other software services sharing the platform, dedicated DNS/DHCP appliances (or specialized software appliances) produce a more stable environment. When deployed in overlay mode (see the Market/Market Segment Description section), DDI solutions further improve network stability by unifying management and administrative tasks across several DNS and DHCP servers. In this article we will discuss Gartner IPAM MQ, so continue reading.

Four different categories of technology suppliers in quickly expanding areas are positioned in a visually competitive manner according to the Gartner Magic Quadrant research methodology: Leaders, Visionaries, Niche Players, and Challengers. Gartner Critical Capabilities notes serve as supplementary research and offer greater insight into the competency and suitability of IT suppliers’ goods and services based on particular or tailored use cases.

Four Quadrants Gartner

The four categories (but let’s name them quadrants anyhow) that make up the Magic Quadrant are Niche Players, Challengers, Visionaries, and Leaders. These four quadrants each reveal a different aspect of a company’s current position within its industry.

For each of the quadrants, the report defines the requirements in depth, but in general, they are as follows:

Niche Players – A company in the lower left quadrant designated as a niche player typically specializes only in a tiny portion of the overall market and has a clear plan for growing and implementing further qualifiers. Be aware that niche markets are not necessarily “bad,” especially if your needs are quite specific.

Visionaries-  The Visionaries are located in the chart’s lower right corner. Some businesses are well aware of the direction the market is going in or can envision a creative approach to change people’s perceptions of technology, but they haven’t yet demonstrated these concepts.

Challengers: The Challengers are represented on the chart’s upper left side. These businesses are well-organized and can meet today’s requirements, but they frequently lack the foresight to provide what clients may want in the future.

Leaders – The Leaders quadrant is located at the upper right. These businesses have successfully executed current standards in the past, and they have also provided clear roadmaps for the standards anticipated in the future.
