Choosing the right vendors to provide ICT products and services to your organization is a critical component to achieving success.
IDC MarketScape is the ICT industry's premier vendor assessment tool, providing in-depth quantitative and qualitative technology market assessments of ICT vendors for a wide range of technology markets. This comprehensive assessment of market competitors, delivered in a full-length research report, and summarized in an easy-to-read graphical depiction, provides you with the critical information necessary to make your most important technology decisions.
IDC MarketScape is based on a balanced group of criteria that lead to ICT vendor's market success (and viability for end-users), not overly weighted toward Offering Functionality or Company Size.
Vendor market share, growth momentum and company size are de-coupled from a vendor's position on the IDC MarketScape graph.
Divisions between chart segments (Leaders, Major Players, Contenders, and Participants) change based on weightings between the two axes, Capabilities and Strategies.
Vendor market share is represented by the size of the bubble in the chart, while a vendor's growth momentum (rate of growth compared to the market) is shown by the "+", "-" or "=" icons.
IDC provides a different perspective on ICT markets, informed by its global research assets and its culture of methodological rigor. As the industry's leading ICT forecast and market share provider, IDC is uniquely positioned to provide a robust and unbiased vendor assessment
