Missing in action: The OpenStackers lost from Gartner's quadrant


Is it possible that Gartner released the incorrect version? Surely the QC or QM process within Gartner should have picked up such glaring irregularites in a report most corporates take as 'Dinkum Proof' or a being written by a God. It has long been thought that Gartner may bias their Magic Quadrants on potential sales to a customer/vendor similar to the bonds that lead to the financial crisis. What this does prove is that the or all Gartner Reports should be tested with a 'common sense' approach to alternative research to confirm findings. However as a consultant, alternative research is not done by corporates.

Is there a manner or means to get garner to withdraw the report and publish an Erratum?
