Oracle Named a Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development Platforms

Oracle positioned as a leader based on ability to execute and completeness of vision

South Africa, Johannesburg, June 26, 2017 — Oracle today announced that it has been named a leader in Gartner’s 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms” report[1]. This recognition is another milestone in the tremendous momentum and growth of Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, part of Oracle Cloud Platform, this year.

“We believe this recognition is another acknowledgement of Oracle’s strong market momentum in the mobile and larger PaaS market, driven by the successful adoption of Oracle Cloud Platform offerings by thousands of customers,” said Amit Zavery, senior vice president, Oracle Cloud Platform. “By delivering a comprehensive offering with key differentiating capabilities, such as chatbot support, predictive analytics, and adaptive intelligence to make apps more contextual and smarter, Oracle has given customers a powerful option to meet their ever-evolving development needs.”

Gartner positions vendors within a particular quadrant based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision. According to Gartner, leaders must represent a strong combination of Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. In the MADP sector, this means that Leaders are not only good at cross-platform development, deployment and management across the full life cycle, but also have a good vision of the omnichannel and post-app requirements, support for multiple architectures and standards, a solid understanding of IT requirements, and scalable sales channels and partnerships. Leaders must provide platforms that are easy to purchase, program, deploy and upgrade, and which can connect to a range of systems of records and third-party cloud services.

Oracle was recognized as a market leader for more than doubling its customer count for Oracle Mobile Cloud Service. A cloud-based Mobile Application Development Platform (MADP), Oracle Mobile Cloud Service provides a no-code approach to app development. It has been deployed by many midsize and large enterprise customers who praised the product’s integration capabilities and cloud architecture. Oracle continues to expand its mobile cloud platform with chatbot support, expanded analytics, and high-productivity development tools.
