According to Gartner:
“Niche Players focus on a particular segment of the market, such as a particular industry, size of client, functional area (such human capital management or order management) or project complexity. Their Ability to Execute is limited to those areas of focus. Their ability to innovate may be affected by their narrow focus. Many of the providers in this segment were rated highly for customer satisfaction, and many can be considered to be leading players within their niche market focus. Niche Players need to increase their implementation or AMS breadth and depth, as well as overall breadth and depth of capabilities, innovation, and bench strength across the spectrum of services.”
