Next up in our Logo Landscape Series is the 2014 Enterprise Collaboration & Social Software Logo Landscape. It shows how the 25 Enterprise Collaboration & Social Software options we evaluate in the Enterprise Collaboration & Social Software Report fall into 5 groupings:
- Platform Vendors
- Major Suites
- Smaller Suites
- Specialist Players
- Social Enterprise Layers
Of course, these categories are merely a starting point for buyers looking to build a shortlist. This is a two-dimensional grouping that lumps key competitors together, but it's not unusual for enterprises to cross categories when building selection short-lists or filling out an overall architecture of participation. As always, you will want to weigh other considerations like region, license and delivery model, application usability, technology platform, and architectural fit.
In fact, I recommend considering a variety of criteria -- like we specify in our Custom Short-List Builder -- to get you to to a good starting point to conduct further diligence and testing before you ultimately make a buying decision.
