How SolutionMap compares to Gartner, Forrester, IDC in rating procurement technology

When it comes to rating procurement technology, what do you trust — your gut or your data?

In a new white paper, Azul Partners and Spend Matters Founder Jason Busch compares the Spend Matters SolutionMap ratings approach to other analyst ratings methodologies, including the Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ), the Forrester Wave and the IDC MarketScape. The fundamental argument that Busch makes is that the “data” that drives legacy rating models and vendor placement is circumspect in terms of accuracy and predictive insight. And that is not because the analysts at these firms are any less smart or expert than those at Spend Matters. Quite the contrary, in fact. It’s the reliance on their very expertise that is creating the problem!

But how can that be?
