Gartner has recognized IBM as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management again in 2021 where IBM is again a Leader through every previous Magic Quadrant evaluation dating back to 2015 (published in 2016). Yes, that's five times in a row.   IBM API Connect and IBM Cloud Pak for Integration are IBM solutions that provide the API Management capabilities included in the 2021 report.  
Gartner’s comments about Leaders in general include:
  • “Leaders are vendors that execute strongly and that lead and influence the market."
  • "The most distinctive attribute of Leaders is that they address the widest variety of API usecases: multiexperience architecture, integration using APIs, internal API management, productization of APIs and open banking."
