Key Findings

  • Employee communications applications (ECAs) are primarily used by corporate communications, marketing communications and HR leaders to inform the workforce on business activities, cultural topics, operational needs and job-related priorities.
  • ECA products help internal communications teams plan, automate, analyze, deliver and gain staff feedback when messaging needs require workforce segmentation, multichannel support, campaign-style execution, personalization, and a mix of analytics.
  • Vendor dynamics over the past 12 months include new entrants and several mergers and acquisitions, signaling that the ECA market is still in its early stages with room for innovation, growth and disruption.

When markets are growing and IT solutions are stable yet competitive, Magic Quadrants provide the best tool for understanding the positioning of the providers; however, when new markets emerge and the offerings and user requirements are in flux, solutions are often difficult to compare, making a competitive positioning less useful. Or, when a market matures to the point that the offerings become fairly interchangeable, comparative positioning is less important than an analysis of and recommendations about the market itself. In these scenarios, a Gartner Market Guide can provide the right insight.. At this time, there is no Gartner Magic Quadrant for Employee Communications Applications.
