Digium was recently honored for the third consecutive year by the Gartner Group by being included in their coveted ‘Magic Quadrant’ for Corporate Telephony. This accomplishment is certainly gratifying for the Digium team, but is a broader statement regarding the adoption and momentum of open source technology within corporate environments. While Digium is the company that’s uniquely positioned at the intersection of two high level industry trends; the growing adoption of IP telephony and the growing adoption of open source as a development model, Asterisk is certainly the star of the show. The Asterisk development community now includes many members from corporate IT departments who have adapted the project to solve a growing list of corporate telephony challenges – sometimes unique to their organization – sometimes of universal appeal. The contributions from these corporate users have proven invaluable in moving Asterisk, and therefore Digium, from the Niche player quadrant to the Visionary quadrant in Gartner’s analysis. It’s also ironic that little-ole Digium finds itself next to Microsoft in the Visionary category. This in itself speaks volumes to the power of open collaboration and the future of telephony. This honor would not be possible without the many contributions of the Asterisk development community, with whom we share this honor.
