Hamburg, Germany, February 27, 2017 – Stibo Systems™, the global leader in Business-first Master Data Management (MDM)™ solutions built for the highest volumes and most demanding businesses, today announced that market research company The Group of Analysts has ranked the company as a leading provider in its most recent Market Performance Wheel (MPW) evaluation. Stibo Systems and its Product MDM solution were given the highest overall score of any vendor ranked in the firm’s product information management (PIM) category.
“Stibo Systems scored well in all of our four knowledge characteristics ranking everything from the technology itself to the company’s ability to execute in the market today and sustained performance for the future,” said Temel Kahyaoglu, Chief Analyst of The Group of Analysts. “In summary, we can say that—on the basis of our in-depth evaluation and the company’s continual further development in all areas—we are convinced Stibo Systems with its Product MDM solution will continue to assume a leading role among PIM providers.”
The Group of Analyst’s Market Performance Wheel is based on a pyramid of knowledge that condenses 400 different evaluation criteria into 16 groups of information measuring ability to execute, market penetration, future proof (i.e., sustainability) and technology. As a result, the Market Performance Wheels form a cumulative viewpoint of all information groups and properties of knowledge in a single data graph. The graph therefore represents a culmination of important company and product characteristics in a consistent and straightforward manner and thereby offers an excellent basis for evaluation. The Group of Analysts has ranked nearly 40 PIM vendors with a Market Performance Wheel over the past 12 years.
