Gartner, Inc., a leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry, announced that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of META Group, Inc., a premier information technology research and consulting firm.

"The completion of this acquisition represents a significant step for Gartner in our strategy to accelerate growth in our core research business," said Gene Hall, chief executive officer of Gartner. "Today, we significantly increased the depth and breadth of our sales coverage in the vastly underserved market for IT research by welcoming more than 100 highly-trained sales people from META - individuals who know the marketplace and our products, and who already have existing client relationships. As a result of the acquisition, we also now have a greater presence in targeted international markets - including the UK and Germany - where we see significant opportunities for growth, as well as greater coverage in several key industries, including energy and utilities, insurance and government and finally, new organizational roles such as enterprise architecture."
