Going for objectivity and usefulness, not pay-to-play

All reports creators will say they are objective. But the proof is in the process. We feel that all vendors that are invited for the report should be based on their technology and never asked for a fee or other form of payment to be included. While there is merit to certain reports that are pay-to-play, you are never really sure.
But show the data points that can be validated and let you select on quantifiable measurements.
You will save time and effort and best of all it is affordable: We want you to actually use it.
