Ardoq Event, Iceland 2022

Ardoq, a SaaS company dedicated to helping enterprises navigate digital transformation with confidence, today announced that the company has been recognized as a Leader in the 2023 Gartner® Magic QuadrantTM for Enterprise Architecture Tool ́s report. This marks Ardoq’s third consecutive year positioned in the Leaders quadrant.

With the evolving role of the EA and forward-leaning enterprises looking for the right platform for their transformation journeys, Ardoq has experienced strong momentum over the last year. Industry leaders such as ExxonMobil, ABB, British Telecom and top-ranking university ETH Zurich have all selected the visionary Ardoq Platform, giving testament to the company’s position in the market.

The 2023 Gartner® Magic QuadrantTM for Enterprise Architecture Tools report assesses the various vendors in the sector. Without endorsing any specific company, it talks about strengths and cautions of all vendors.

“We are honored to again be positioned as a Leader. Buyers refer to multiple pieces of research, including the quadrant, as part of their purchasing process due diligence, and we will always strive to get that important recognition. Competition is beneficial, compelling us as product suppliers to maintain our competitive edge, while also ensuring customers access continually evolving and improved products. At Ardoq, our vision for new enterprise architecture is still a north star and guides our product development. We are proud, but never content,” says Erik Bakstad, Ardoq co-founder and CEO.

Ardoq’s cloud-native, data-driven SaaS platform enables enterprises to govern their IT landscape and empower them to drive change across the organization. With Ardoq, customers can foster the cross-organizational collaboration and stakeholder engagement needed to create and maintain a single source of truth to benefit the business’ overall needs.

Following the company’s $125 million Series D funding round by EQT growth and One Peak last year, Ardoq has invested significantly in both product development, go-to-market and professional services to provide in-depth, customized support designed to guide customers through every phase of their Ardoq engagement journey. The launch of Ardoq Discover is, according to the company, an important step in the mission to democratize digital delivery by making the enterprise architecture accessible to business users and technologists at the click of a button.

“Customers that choose Ardoq are typically seeking more automated processes, a higher degree of democratized and informed decision-making, and a vendor with a clear objective to

push boundaries in the EA field,” Bakstad says. “We are a progressive, independent, pure-play vendor, with substantial progress. That means we have the resources to continue investing heavily in our product and work closely with our customers to deliver business value. Although we are happy to be named a Leader once again, we will continue to innovate and ensure the market understands that there are significant differentiators among the recognized vendors. This is something potential customers should be aware of, and we will work hard to make these distinctive capabilities clearer to our prospects,” Bakstad states.
