According to Gartner, Gartner expert analysts use the following guidelines and approach to identify and research Cool Vendors. A vendor must be considered innovative, impactful or intriguing in either the products or the IT services sectors. Cool Vendors are not limited to technology coolness, however — coolness may also include services or unique business models.

  • Innovative: The vendor has developed technologies, products, services or business models that enable users to do things they couldn’t do before, in ways that are materially different from other options in the market, due to their unique or novel approach.
  • Impactful: The vendor offers technologies, products, services or business models that have or will have transformative business impact, and that can transform a market.
  • Intriguing: The vendor has caught Gartner’s interest/curiosity. The vendor helps organizations to identify an upcoming trend.

Unlocking enterprise data for safe, cost-effective use in AI is critical for ML engineers as well as security and compliance teams. Granica is an AI efficiency platform that addresses this problem by providing teams with data privacy, access visibility, and cost management.
