  • Telefonica has improved its position in this Magic Quadrant on the ability to execute axis compared to the previous version of the report
  • Telefonica has scored in all categories in the Critical Capabilities report 

Madrid, April 16, 2018- Telefonica Business Solutions, a leading provider of a wide range of integrated communication solutions for the B2B market, is a renowned Managed Mobility Services global provider to all sectors of industries. This year Telefonica has been positioned for the fourth time in a row in the Visionaries quadrant of independent analyst firm Gartner Inc.’s report “Magic Quadrant for Managed Mobility Services, Worldwide”.

This year’s Magic Quadrant evaluates 12 providers and categorizes core deliverables for MMS into five categories: Sourcing and logistics management, Managed EMM, Security management, Financial management and Program management (including professional services).

Telefonica Business Solutions has also increased its scores in all categories in the “Critical Capabilities for Managed Mobile Services, Global”. We feel that our scores validate our position in the MMS market.

“We believe this recognition is a direct outcome of our continued progress and improvement in the enterprise mobility area. We feel that we are providing our customers with a comprehensive enterprise mobility portfolio to enable them to advance in their digital transformation, focusing on employee productivity whilst ensuring the secure mobilization of their business.” states Hugo de los Santos, Telefonica Business Solutions’ Director Global B2B Products and Services.

According to the report, “Visionaries have an innovative and disruptive view of mobility and its effect on the enterprise. However, their service capabilities are highly dependent on the use of private-labeled subcontractors, and they frequently have limited service portfolios in terms of breadth and depth. Visionaries have an early-mover advantage in providing project-based services, such as consulting, development and integration. Visionaries maintain the potential to quickly become Leaders, based on the creation of deeper managed-service, or outsourcing, relationships that span tactical and strategic user requirements.”
