Gartner's Magic Quadrant focuses on a specific market that is rapidly growing or consolidating. It adopts a two-dimensional matrix to evaluate the execution capability and proactivity of manufacturers, and to show the position of each vendor in the market. In the Magic Quadrant, the vertical coordinate indicates a manufacturer's "execution" capability while the horizontal coordinate indicates the proactivity. Execution means the ability to realize vision at high efficiency, so the vertical coordinate shows the current performance of manufacturers. Proactivity indicates integrity of the vision, that is, a manufacturer should be able to clarify its roadmap, future customer needs and market direction. Therefore, the horizontal coordinate shows the future development capability.
