Forrester's Scoring System

Forrester evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of the top software-based HCI vendors after examining user needs assessments, past research, and vendor and expert interviews. The research firm evaluated vendors against 36 criteria which it grouped into several high-level categories including current HCI software offering and market strategy. In order to make the cut, each vendor needed to have top level HCI software, hyper-converged functions offered on industry-standard infrastructure, provide product demos and reference customers.

All scores are based on a scale of 0 (weak) to 5 (strong). The vendors were placed in three market ranking categories: Leader, Strong Performer, and Contender. Here are the scores for the 11 vendors.
