As the first in our 2017 updates to RSG's Logo Landscape Series, here's the Enterprise Collaboration & Social Software marketplace.
It shows how the 23 Enterprise Collaboration & Social Software options that RSG evaluates in our Enterprise Collaboration & Social Software Report fall into five groupings:
- Platform Vendors
- Major Suites
- Smaller Suites
- Specialist Players
- Social Enterprise Layers and SharePoint Supplements
Of course, these categories are merely a starting point for customers investigating the market. This is a two-dimensional analysis that tries to group similar competitors, but you'll almost surely want to look across segments to create an overall architecture of participation.
In fact, I recommend considering a variety of criteria — like we specify in RSG's Real Quadrant tool — to get you to to a good starting point to conduct further diligence and testing before you ultimately make a buying decision.
If we can help you here, please let us know.
