Some days ago, we've published our report on Hidden Gems 2010 - vendors which are innovative but not that well known, at least not on a worldwide basis. We've included 25 vendors. Right now, only 24 of them are hidden. Völcker Informatik, one of the Hidden Gems, has been acquired by Quest Software. There is a good reason for that: Völcker is, from the Quest perspective, a Gem which might help them make shine (even) more than before. And not only from the Völcker perspective.

For sure I like it when a Hidden Gem becomes "more visible", because it proves our rating of these vendors. So I'm looking forward to see who is next.
