The Nucleus Research Technology Value Matrix is the most complete assessment of the real value a solution delivers.
It provides a relative positioning of the important vendors in a market area and delivers a concise framework for assessing the suitability of a solution for a particular customer. Vendors are measured on both usability and functionality – key drivers of value – and placed into four categories: Leaders, Experts, Facilitators, and Core Providers. Given all markets continue to evolve, the center point of the matrix is reassessed with each publication, forcing vendors that do not keep pace with the market to fall behind relative to others.
For a detailed explanation of the Value Matrix process see report: S142 – Understanding the Value Matrix.
