    Identity and Access Governance" for the fifth year (1) and the "Magic
    Quadrant for User Administration/Provisioning" for the second year

    access. Leaders also show evidence of superior vision and execution
    for anticipated requirements related to technology, methodology or
    means of delivery. Leaders typically show strong revenue growth and
    demonstrate customer satisfaction with IAG capabilities and/or related
    service and support." (1)

    exceptional progress and effort in the Ability to Execute and
