My company has now completed its latest assessment of the MDM market, which we represent via our “Landscape” diagram. The research is quite time-consuming, and involves surveying vendors for factual information (then sifting out their more blatantly optimistic assertions; I am a suspicious soul), looking at product demonstrations and asking pesky questions about features of the products, and carrying out a survey of reference customers. The results are amalgamated into a high level view of each vendor in the market in the dimensions of “market strength”, “technology “and “customer base”. Much more detail of the breakdown of the various elements that contribute to these scores are held in our vendor profiles.
You can see the diagram and some accompanying text on the front page of our web site.
