Detailed subquestions are used to assess the company across each of the five success factors, which are assigned a value from 1 (weak) to 4 (strong). Leveraging IDC's expert understanding of the competitive landscape and future outlook, this document provides insight into private companies based on IDC's unique watch score system:

  • Market potential: Market growth potential, strength of competition, and current stage of market (early adopters versus late majority)
  • Products and services: Level of differentiation, disruptive capability, and scalability
  • Competitive edge: Competitive landscape and peer assessment
  • Customers: Number of existing customers, quality of existing customer base, geographic reach, and size of addressable market in the coming years given the vendor's current capabilities
  • Corporate strategy: Go-to-market strategy, management pedigree, and financial status (running on venture capital with insignificant revenue versus self-sustaining and not seeking additional rounds of funding)
