Monday, March 28, 2011 - Information Management
Information Management, a SourceMedia brand, has released its "40 Vendors We're Watching in 2011." The list shines a spotlight on the most compelling software and service providers that are driving innovation, growth and efficiency in the way enterprises manage data and information.
The 40 vendors were chosen by the magazine's editors from among hundreds of prospects. The editors' decisions were based on close reporting and analysis of market activity, including corporate IT buying patterns, new product releases, and technology trends. Among other things, in assembling the list, the editors drew upon an extensive series of interviews with leading IT professionals and analysts. Information Management reaches more than 200,000 information technology and data professionals each month through its magazine, website, and online events.
This year's "40 Vendors We're Watching" offers a unique window on a fast-changing industry. "Agility is one of the main differentiators in our list this year," says Information Management Editor-in-Chief Julie Langenkamp. "Providers that offer rapid deployment of easy-to-use tools suited to a broad audience are very much in demand."
