Not Your Typical Analyst Firm.

RSG's team of industry veterans leverage our implementation backgrounds to share the real story from actual customers like you.

We always begin with a business case analysis to help shape your strategic options. But we are not cheerleaders: these solutions can be complicated to implement, and we remain honest about the real costs and effort required to get them to work.

Our vendor evaluations delve into significant technical detail. We get beyond vendor PowerPoint slides and routine checklists to offer meaningful analysis for business users, architects, developers, and other stakeholders.

At the same time, we simplify complex topics through custom illustrations and screenshots showing the products in action.

We employ proven stack reference models to shape advice in the context of a broader strategy.

We cover more vendors than most analyst firms, including open source projects and key mid-market players. You have many good choices. We help you uncover them.

We always set in your side of the table. We do not perform work for vendors and consistently challenge even the biggest players. All that matters is that you the customer succeeds

More importantly, we never rank "best" or "magic" vendors. Instead we detail the strengths and weaknesses of a solution in the context of different use cases, while isolating vendor tendencies that may influence long-term fit.

Candor means accessibility. We make ourselves available to our subscribers, to answer your questions, advise on your decisions, and educate your team.
