Hot Vendors 2013, Part I

Hot VendorSummary: Aragon Research introduces our Part I of our Hot Vendor Special Report for 2013.

Our second annual Special Report on Hot Vendors is here. In fact we discovered enough Hot Vendors that we are publishing our Special Report in two parts.

In each of our topic coverage areas, we have identified vendors who are hot. They can be hot for several reasons, including:

  • The product or service offering
  • A compelling new technology
  • A compelling offering that leverages trending technologies such as Cloud, Content, Mobile or Video

For the Part I of our 2013 Hot Vendor Special Report, we have identified 24 vendors in four categories. There are four different research notes that highlight each of the hot vendors.
