Social Business Vendor Benchmark 2016: Start of Sneak Preview Phase

Heiko Henkes

Heiko HenkesThe “Social Business Vendor Benchmark 2016“ is Experton Group’s third edition of its independent vendor benchmark of the Social Business market in Germany. The study will analyze all relevant Social Business vendors and service providers and their respective offerings and will determine the attractiveness of their portfolio and their competitive strength, based on a multitude of weighted criteria.

This report provides CIOs, IT executives and press representatives a detailed and differentiated overview of the key Social Business vendors and service providers in the German-speaking market.

Press representatives will be supplied selected results of the benchmark to be published in the respective media.

The research phase, including vendor surveys, expert interviews and test & evaluations of the respective offerings for this study, has just been finished.

To support IT executives and help them preselect potential partners, Experton Group will conduct a benchmark on the performance of vendors and service providers who are active in the German market. The benchmark will cover the following segments:

  • Social Enterprise Networking Suites
  • Social Project & Portfolio Management
  • Social Enterprise Filesharing
  • Social Media Management
  • Social eCommerce
  • Social Analytics (“Socialytics”)
  • Social Career & Job Platforms
  • Social Business Transformation - Full (IT-) Service Provider
  • Social Transformation – Digital Communication (Agencies)

Decision makers at Social Business consumer companies will also base their opinions of projects and tender offers on this image. For that reason, it is important that you, along with your company, actively participate in the research phase. Take active advantage of the research phase to conduct a briefing with Experton Group advisors and provide us with additional documentation about your Social Business offerings.

The results are final by now - in the following weeks, we will send each evaluated Service- and Software Provider an invitation to an exclusive "Sneak-Preview Call", where we will present the individual positioning of the vendor, before any results are published by Experton and the media. Please take this offer as a chance to get a preview look at our & your results. 

Vendor positioning is based on a neutral and independent research and evaluation process. Participation in the study was FREE OF CHARGE; however, vendors can purchase secondary marketing rights for the study for marketing, press and sales purposes AFTER the benchmark has been completed.
