“As a result of the pandemic, organizations are walking on a tightrope between balancing operational resilience and delivering a better employee experience,” said Rajesh Ganesan, VP of product management at ManageEngine. “The key to getting this right is a unified service management approach that we at ManageEngine enable our customers to achieve through the ServiceDesk Plus platform. We believe this recognition from Gartner is a testament to the product helping customers navigate the challenges of service management in the era of hybrid work.”

ServiceDesk Plus was also recognized in the 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities for IT Service Management Tools. The Critical Capabilities research complements the Gartner Magic Quadrant and analyzes 13 capabilities that differentiate the ITSM offerings from each of the 11 vendors.
