SAP Named a Leader in 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Database Management Systems


WALLDORFSAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that independent research and advisory firm Gartner Inc. has named SAP a Leader in its “Magic Quadrant for Cloud Database Management Systems” report.*

Gartner evaluated 16 vendors and named SAP a Leader based on its “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.” In addition, SAP ranked second highest across all four Use Cases in Gartner’s “Critical Capabilities for Cloud Database Management Systems for Operational Use Cases.”**
