The vendor’s position in the Navigator is calculated through assessing several criteria. Inputs into the analysis includes collection and evaluation of open-source information (company information, industry events, news, blogs, social media platforms etc), sentiment analysis, discussions with the ecosystem (channel partners and customers) and vendor interviews.
