Gartner defines IRCM Magic Quadrant "Leaders" as vendors that perform profitably, grow their revenue and have a presence in all major markets; have above-average functionality, with leading-edge technology and scalability; engage in innovative projects and activities, carefully listening to their customer base; and engage in understanding the underlying and emerging patterns/trends in revenue and customer management activities, and direct their R&D resources and investments.

"Communications Service Providers and Digital Enterprises continue to be challenged with identifying innovative new ways to monetize their services and grow their businesses in an increasingly competitive landscape," said Denis Bernaert, Senior Vice-President, Managing Director BSS Business Unit at Comverse. "Our mission at Comverse is to enable our clients' success through a range of services that help them maximize their revenue realization while delivering new value to their customer base.
