[Koha] Is it possible to take an XML feed of individual records and bring it into Koha or MARC format?

The short answer is "yes." The long answer is, "yes, but you'll probably
need to do some sort of conversion." I'd use XSLT for the transformation.

Do you know what schema Gartner uses? If you're lucky, it's something that
the Library of Congress already provides a stylesheet for. If not (and it
probably isn't, alas), chances are good you'll need a custom stylesheet to
take their data and turn it into useful MARCXML (and from there you can
convert it into binary MARC, and thence import it into Koha).

Hope that helps.
