This 2012 Value Index will provide guidance that can enable organizations to ascertain the value of applications for addressing product information management. Using the Value Index, businesses and specific commerce, marketing, product, manufacturing and supply chain organizations will be able to evaluate vendors and their products and make choices based on an understanding of how well existing and new applications and technology best satisfy their needs.
"The Value Index for Product Information Management is beneficial to those organizations looking to build world class product information management processes and are focused on the best possible efficiency and profitability from its products and services," said Mark Smith, CEO and Chief Research Officer of Ventana Research. "Unfortunately the lack of real world analysis and research on vendors and products has left most organizations without the tools to assess existing applications and evaluate new ones for improvement."
The Ventana Research Value Index is an analytic representation of our assessment of how well vendors’ offerings meet buyers’ requirements. Built on a foundation of 10 years of business and technology research, this unbiased, fact-based index is the first such industry undertaking to assess the value of software designed specifically for the business process or function on which it focuses.
The 2012 Value Index for Product Information Management will assess the following technology vendors: Agility, Enterworks, Heiler, Hybris, IBM, Oracle, Riversand, SAP and Stibo Systems. Other vendors that believe they qualify to be included in this Value Index should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
