Being in Gartner Magic quadrant is sufficient to succeed?

Yasir Irfan Yasir Irfan Profile: Yasir Irfan

Currently, we are testing some of the network and application monitoring solutions, so that we can go with a product, which serves our needs. We approached many vendors and got a good response from them, and some even offered to do a proof of concept. Which we opted  happily, and in fact it helped us to take some strategic decisions, which were in the interest of the Organisation.

During this journey what we observed is that some vendors were reluctant to provide a proof of concept, and they tried to convince us they are in the in the magic quadrant of Gartner in that particular field, by doing, so they lost the opportunity with us. My question here is, it right to choose a product or solution just because it is in a magic quadrant of Gartner? Your feedback and comments are helpful.
