THE BOTTOM LINE
The Nucleus Research Technology Value Matrices are published at least once a year in Nucleus’s core research areas. Through the analysis of end-user experiences, vendors are evaluated on both usability and functionality – key drivers of value – and placed into four categories: Leaders, Experts, Facilitators, and Core Providers. Customers can use the Matrices to evaluate vendor short lists as well as to make the case for maintaining existing applications. The Matrix is designed to be a complement to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant by providing a view of the relative value of competing solutions that is aligned with the buying cycle.
