NEW YORK, NY, USA, 1 March 2019—Gartner, the world’s leading information technology and advisory company, positioned Deloitte as a Visionary, based on completeness of vision and ability to execute in its November 2018 report titled, Magic Quadrant for Application Testing Services, Worldwide.

Gartner defines application testing services as “a comprehensive term used to capture all types of verification and validation services to support quality control and quality assurance (QA) of clients' applications. Verification assesses the technical behavior, and validation assesses the functional behavior of tested elements.”

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant evaluates 20 application services providers. According to the report, Visionaries are defined as those who “articulate important market trends and direction. They have a vision for changing market rules, but they are not in a position to fully deliver and consistently execute.”

The report also notes, “the demand for application testing services is still growing, although the demand from clients on what they need from their service providers is shifting. Speed to market is becoming critical as organizations are continuing on their transition to becoming digital enterprises.”

As used in this press release, “Deloitte” refers only to the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited member firms and their affiliates.
