As with all Forrester Waves, vendors were rated based on the capabilities of their current offering, their strategy and breadth of market presence. To evaluate vendors on their strengths and weaknesses of each solution, Forrester analysts assess various data sources based on a combination of vendor surveys, product demos and customer reference calls and surveys. Forrester sets default weightings to reflect their analysis of the needs of large user companies and then scores the vendors based on a clearly defined scale.
