Yearly, Gartner evaluates vendors in the International Retail Core Banking Magic Quadrant in terms of their ability to execute, and the completeness of their vision. CallataÃ¿ & Wouters entered the Magic Quadrant as a âChallengerâ in 2008, and moved to âLeaderâ in 2009. 2011 marks the third year in a row that the company is recognized as âLeaderâ.
Key to the successful evaluation of CallataÃ¿ & Wouters was its flagship product, Thaler. Other factors that contributed to CallataÃ¿ & Woutersâ position as âLeaderâ are its driven membership of organisations such as BIAN and its consistent track record of product and implementation quality.
âWe are very pleased with the third time we receive this important recognition,â comments Marc De Groote, CEO of CallataÃ¿ & Wouters, âIt shows that we are pursuing the right strategies and that we are highly consistent in the execution of these strategies. Gartnerâs independent recognition of our work is an inspiration for us to keep excelling at what we do best.â
