"Gartner vs G2crowd"

What do you like best?

I like the human addition to the Gartner offering. While a site like G2 crowd gives reviews, its harder to get direction without knowing what you are looking for. I see Gartner is adding more reviews which is a good extra feature and helpful for both sides of the search.

What do you dislike?

High costs for contract and the free reviews are limited.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great in helping you really make the right decisions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What software to buy for my business.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes they provide too much information and we can't handle, but isnt their fault.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need references to help you about the future of technology or tendencies, they will help you out.

"Gartner provides research for investment decisions"

What do you like best?

The huge database of research is most helpful to me and my team. It's easy to find anything on the web, but to have a verified and trusted source of research helps us make confident decisions. The Analyst calls are a great resource as well. They're incredibly intelligent and focused on specific areas.

What do you dislike?

The platform is sometimes hard to navigate and the search tool could use improvement (limited filtering and sorting options). Furthermore, it is sometimes difficult to find the perfect Analyst for specific topic or project (also sometimes incredibly easy).

"Professional Articles"

What do you like best?

I like the unbias report that best because I wasn't so pressure to buy. Being unbias has a good market in IT.

What do you dislike?

What I don't like is the amount of articles to look at. I wish that I can filter my search to include key words to narrow my result more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are stuck with forums or other websites to look for answers, give Gartner a try.

"Paid for Reviews"

What do you like best?

Quadrant maps, and information on various important business sectors

What do you dislike?

That compnies that are customers are the only ones that seem to get good placement

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out other options like G2Crowd for instance. Likely that vendors get fairer treatment and that analysis is more accurate

"Great Resource for Identifying Trends and Researching new Technology"

What do you like best?

For someone looking to add new functionality to their IT landscape, the research provided by Gartner is invaluable. They stay on top of market trends and are able to provide a good picture of what similar companies in the same industry are doing.

What do you dislike?

There's not really much to dislike. The more data you have to help make an informed decision, the better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The only thing I would say is don't let this be your only source of data for any research that you're doing. Gartner should definitely be one of the first sources that you take into consideration, but the bigger variety of sources you can look at the better.

"Great Resource for Documentation & Research"

What do you like best?

The ease of finding research, and documents created by experts or other professionals that provide you insight into new technologies or products.

What do you dislike?

Perusing through the copious amounts of data can be daunting. It can be very difficult to find exactly what you are looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Gartner or Forrester, they are truly 1 in the same. Gartner will provide you a lot of good research material, but so will Google.
