STAMFORD, Conn., Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, today announced it is expanding its ISG Provider Lens™ research coverage into three new markets – Australia, Brazil and the UK – with separate reports evaluating providers offering infrastructure, data center and private cloud services in each market.
The ISG Provider Lens Quadrant research series is the only provider evaluation of its kind to combine empirical, data-driven research and market analysis with the real-world experience and observations of ISG's global advisory team.
"We are delighted to expand our ISG Provider Lens coverage to Australia, Brazil and the UK as part of our ongoing plans to offer this valuable provider research to clients in major sourcing markets around the world," said Esteban Herrera, partner and global leader of ISG Research. He noted the three new markets expand ISG Provider Lens coverage beyond the U.S. and Germany, which were launched last year. Additional markets will be added in 2019.
The ISG Provider Lens Quadrant reports provide important insights to enterprise buyers on the strengths, competitive differentiators and unique selling points of leading providers serving each market. Enterprises will find a wealth of detailed data and market analysis to help guide their selection of appropriate sourcing partners, while ISG's own advisors use the reports to validate their own market knowledge and make recommendations to ISG's enterprise clients.
"What sets our groundbreaking research apart is our robust, independent methodology that combines our unique data assets with input and advice from our experienced ISG consultants who work every day with technology and service providers and enterprise clients to help achieve optimal outcomes from their partnerships," said Herrera. "No other research offers this kind of real-world perspective drawn from the front lines of digital, IT and business process outsourcing. Our clients derive tremendous value from these reports."
The ISG Provider Lens Quadrant reports place providers in one of four quadrants: leaders, product challengers, market challengers and contenders. The horizontal axis of each ISG quadrant evaluates the competitive strength of providers based on brand image and awareness, geographic coverage, experience, execution capability, and sales and marketing ecosystem. The vertical axis of the quadrant evaluates portfolio attractiveness on such parameters as vision and strategy, pricing competitiveness, technology competency, partnership ecosystem, innovation and differentiation, and breadth of services.
Providers that score high on both axes, placing them in the upper-right quadrant, are identified as "Leaders." Providers that do not make the "Leaders" quadrant but demonstrate significant traction in either their competitive strength or their portfolio attractiveness, and are projected to continue this trajectory, are identified as "Rising Stars."
The ISG Provider Lens Quadrant reports are a complement to the existing series of ISG Provider Lens Archetype reports, which offer a first-of-its-kind evaluation of providers from the perspective of specific buyer types.
