Share Article

Inovis, a leading provider of on-demand Business Community Management solutions, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant in the 2008 “Magic Quadrant for B2B Gateway Software Vendors” report1.

This flexibility will help companies meet the evolving technology and integration needs of any business ecosystem. We are proud of Gartner's evaluation of our investment and continued commitment to this market.

According to the report, "although many companies outsource some of their B2B infrastructures (to integration-as-a service [IaaS] providers — a different form of B2B infrastructure), B2B gateway software continues (and will continue) to be in high demand from companies of every size, and across all industries that need software to run their B2B infrastructures. In particular, most midsize-to-large companies eventually will deploy some form of B2B gateway software to manage their B2B integration projects."

As business communities grow globally and become more complex, companies will often need to support a mix of technologies and deployment models (behind-the-firewall software vs integration-as-a-service vs business process outsourcing) in order to support the different requirements of its suppliers and, in some cases, customers.

"Inovis is uniquely positioned with high-quality B2B Gateway software as part of a complete, end-to-end suite that spans software applications to hosted and total business process outsourcing," said Sean Feeney, president and chief executive officer at Inovis. "This flexibility will help companies meet the evolving technology and integration needs of any business ecosystem. We are proud of Gartner's evaluation of our investment and continued commitment to this market."
