Executive Insights: Hot Vendors Lists Coming Soon from Aragon Research

Executive Insights: Hot Vendors Lists Coming Soon from Aragon Research

The lists feature top vendors in collaboration and communications, content management, machine and deep learning, mobile and IOT, sales and marketing.

It is hard to believe, but this year marks the fourth year that Aragon Research will be selecting and naming our Hot Vendors. In 2012, our first year of Hot Vendors, many wondered why we were doing it, partly because Aragon was still new in the market. Jump ahead to just a year later and Media Outlets, such as CMSWire, referred to our award as the “coveted Aragon Hot Vendor award.”

As we enter our fourth year, the 2015 Hot Vendor Awards have expanded, partly because technology markets have grown due to the rise of business applications. Our Hot Vendors are evaluated against the following criteria:

  • A product or service offering that is innovative in its approach in an existing market
  • A powerful new technology or new business application
  • An offering that leverages Cloud, Collaboration, Content, Communications, Mobile, Security or Deep Learning in a way that will delight buyers.
