Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure, 2Q07, analyzes the total application infrastructure market and was based on an assessment of the functional capabilities of products that were available in the market at the beginning of 2007. The report considered suppliers that ranked highest with respect to the weighted set of capabilities across multiple project types. The weighted composite score was used to determine which suppliers to include in this Magic Quadrant and as the score for the Product/Service criterion in the Magic Quadrant.
