Organizations are challenged to find authoritative information about technology vendors that they can rely on to help them shape and market their product roadmap and strategy. At a time when claims about technology fly about with the speed and reliability of gossip, authoritative, in-depth analysis based on reliable objective research is essential. Vendors that embrace and use authoritative research are certain to benefit from the credibility and attention.
We offer our Value Index as a research-based guide for technology buyers and suppliers on current vendors and products. Our Value Index is designed to help influence the market through use as part of an RFI / RFP approach. Our carefully crafted and best practices-based methodology draws on our benchmark research to provide product and vendor analyses that reflect organizations’ priorities. The reports will guide them on how to assess vendors to avoid making a decision that will negatively impact the total cost of ownership and return on investment.
Our Value Index service provides an important product development service to help technology vendors understand all aspects on the fit of their product offerings with current and future market demand and how to position them to achieve and maintain a strong market position.
