Number of employees
Founded in 1979, Gartner has over 15,000 employees located in 100+ offices worldwide.
The company was founded in 1979 by Gideon Gartner. Originally a private company, the Gartner Group was launched publicly the first time in the 1980s, then acquired by Saatchi & Saatchi, a London-based advertising agency, and then acquired in 1990 by some of its executives, with funding from Bain Capital and Dun & Bradstreet. The company went public again in 1993. In 2000 the name was simplified to Gartner. In 2000 Gartner coined the term Supranet. Gene Hall has been the CEO of the company since August 2004.
In the course of its growth, Gartner has acquired numerous companies providing related services, including Real Decisions—which became Gartner Measurement, now part of Gartner's consulting division—and Gartner Dataquest, a market research firm. It has also acquired a number of direct competitors, Meta Group in 2005, AMR Research and Burton Group in early 2010, and Ideas International in 2012.
In 2014, Gartner also coined the term "Digital BizOps" and further developed the early philosophy for digital business operations. In July 2015, Gartner acquired Nubera, the business app discovery network that owns properties like GetApp (a peer review site), AppStorm, AppAppeal, and CloudWork. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. In September 2015, it acquired the privately held peer review site (PRS) Capterra.
In June 2016, Gartner announced that it had acquired the privately held company SCM World, headquartered in London, U.K. On January 5, 2017 Gartner announced it had reached an agreement to acquire CEB, Inc. in a cash and stock deal worth about US$2.6 billion. On March 7, 2017 Gartner announced that it has agreed to buy New York-based L2 Inc, which specialises in benchmarking the digital performance of brands. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
