London, New York – January 15, 2015 – OpenLink, the global leader in Energy, Commodities and Treasury trading systems, today announced that analyst firm Gartner Inc. has positioned OpenLink in the "Leaders" quadrant of their Magic Quadrant for Trading Platforms.* The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a qualitative evaluation of a set of vendors in a specific market based on 'Completeness of Vision' and 'Ability to Execute'.
Ken Knowles, Executive Vice President, Product Management at OpenLink, said "OpenLink's trading platforms are functionally rich and used by some of the largest firms in the world, yet many may not realize that we also work with numerous mid-size companies, looking for rapid implementations and quick time to value. Our increasing use of agile methodologies and market best practice packaged solutions help to better serve the needs of these markets. Gartner's recognition of OpenLink as a leader validates OpenLink's appeal across a broad range of trading institutions."
