Gartner's Magic Quadrant report evaluates service providers for the completeness of their vision and their ability to execute those visions.

They have a strong vision that includes adopting more information and communication technology (ICT) capabilities, which is a strategy they articulate clearly and openly."

NTT Com's recent initiatives include the acquisition of Virtela Technology Services Incorporated (Virtela), a leading global managed and cloud network services company based in Denver, Colorado, USA. The combination of NTT Com's high-quality service and Virtela's advanced, highly efficient operational know-how, as well as the expansion of service availability, is allowing NTT Com to offer high-quality Internet services through access lines enabled by Virtela's globally standardized service provision structure. In addition, from the second half of the current fiscal year, NTT Com will begin providing cloud-based managed security services utilizing network function virtualization technology to virtualize the functions of customers' network equipment.
Through these and other initiatives, NTT Com, a global ICT partner, intends to further expand and upgrade global network (http://www.ntt.com/universalone_e/) services that enable customers to grow their global businesses effectively and efficiently.
According to Gartner, "Magic Quadrants provides a graphical competitive positioning of technology and service providers where market growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct. Magic Quadrants depict markets in the middle phases of their life cycle by using a two-dimensional matrix that evaluates vendors based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. A Magic Quadrant has 15 weighted criteria that plot vendors based on their relative strengths in a particular market." (*2)
