Gartner has named Siemens (News - Alert) Enterprise Communications as a leader in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for unified communications based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute.
Gartner (News - Alert) judges a company’s completeness of vision based on current and future market direction, innovation, customer needs and competitive forces, and how well these map to Gartner’s overall evaluation of the market.

According to Gartner, vendors in the leader's quadrant "have a full UC offering, strong market presence and demonstrate success in the field. They have a strong presence in related markets to expand their footprint in UC. These vendors, and their channel partners, have experience delivering UC to a broad range of enterprise types and into most geographic regions."
