About Gartner, Inc.

A well-known face

One of the more recognizable names in the consulting world, Gartner is a firm whose reputation is built on its capabilities in technology research and benchmarking.

The firm's clients are drawn from a number of sectors, including: banking, investment services and insurance; education; energy and utilities; government and public sector; healthcare provides; and high tech and telecom providers. The firm's services include: IT Cost Optimization; Identity and Access Management; IT Risk Management; IT Outsourcing; and Benchmarking.

According to Gartner's site, the firm serves 80 percent of the Fortune 500, and completes over 1,500 initiatives and 5,500 IT cost and performance benchmarks each year. Additionally, the average Gartner consultant has around 15 years of experience--with the firm having almost 1,500 consultants on its books in 2013, according to its annual report from that year.
