Jeff Kelly, CEO for BT Global Services, said: "We are delighted that Gartner recognizes BT as a global leader in such influential reports. These Magic Quadrants cover issues and geographies that are at the very core of our customer's needs. We are especially proud of our position as a global leader, as we believe it reflects the success of our global strategy, and our investments in these high growth economies in support of our customers. For us, this recognition also further confirms the enhancements and innovation we keep bringing to BT Connect, our portfolio of intelligent networking solutions. Network services are a key part of BT's global business strategy, and enable us to support our customers all over the world, with a strong focus on global industry sectors such as financial services, consumer packaged goods, logistics, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, government or health."
In early March 2012, BT announced "a new dimension of intelligent networks for business" as a major update to BT Connect. The move established 'intelligence' as a new dimension for the definition of network performance alongside speed, availability, scope, security and resilience. Key components of BT Connect now include BT Connect IQ evaluator tool to assess and improve networks; enhanced customer portal for managing network services from any device; new unified dashboard for Connect applications portfolio; and a new suite of BT Connect applications.
