Aragon Research Hot Vendors for 2015 are Coming
By Jim Lundy
It is hard to believe, but this year marks the fourth year we will be selecting and naming our Hot Vendors. In 2012, our very first year of Hot Vendors, many wondered why we were doing it, partly because Aragon was still new in the market. Jump ahead to just a year later and Media Outlets, such as CMSWire, referred to our award as the “coveted Aragon Hot Vendor award”.
As we enter our fourth year, the 2015 Hot Vendor Awards have expanded, partly because technology markets have grown due to the rise of business applications.
Our Hot Vendors are evaluated against the following criteria:
- A product or service offering that is innovative in its approach in an existing market
- A powerful new technology or new business application
- An offering that leverages Cloud, Collaboration, Content, Communications, Mobile, Security or Deep Learning in a way that will delight buyers.
For 2015, we will have over 14 different Hot Vendor Reports in multiple categories, including:
