ARMONK, NY - 23 Nov 2004: IBM announced today that analyst firm Gartner has placed IBM in the leader quadrant in its latest Learning Magic Quadrant report titled "The 2004 E-Learning Content Magic Quadrant(1)." The report evaluated e-learning content providers on vision and execution. With this placement, IBM achieves "Leader" quadrant placement in all three of Gartner's 2004 Learning Magic Quadrant reports including E-Learning Suites(2) and Learning Management Systems(3).
According to the most recent Learning Magic Quadrant on E-Learning Content, content leaders have the highest combined measures of ability to execute and completeness of vision. They are doing well today and are prepared for the future. They must have broad content libraries or high-quality custom content creation capabilities, strong channel partners and consistent financial performance (revenue growth and cash generation).

"We are honored to be listed in the leader quadrant in Gartner's research," said Nancy DeViney, general manager, IBM Learning Solutions. "We feel this achievement demonstrates IBM's commitment to working with organizations to provide end-to-end learning solutions that support their transformation initiatives."
