The Evaluator Group EvaluScale Comparison Matrices™ are the fastest most accurate way to compare products. Whether it is SANs, Backup-as-a-Service, NAS, Hyperconverged or more, once a year we conduct a major review of all of the products to add new, relevant functionality and ensure all data is accurate.
EvaluScale Comparison Matrices and product reviews are modified with announcements throughout the year. These comparisons are the only independent, up-to-date analysis available in the market.
Evaluator Group does not rely on vendor data sheets or self-reporting data; rather they dig into the products and thoroughly vet the vendor’s claims. The results are product comparisons that are accurate and reliable.
“Deciphering “technology speak” and marketing terms is laborious and frustrating (take it from us, we’ve done the work)! And the easy part is the original creation of the matrices. Keeping these up to date and relevant is where our clients rely on us for the best, most accurate information available in the market,” said Camberley Bates, Managing Director, Evaluator Group.
In addition to the downloadable product comparisons, in each technology area, Evaluator Group defines the top 10 list of decision-making criteria and ranks the product as either “meets requirements”, “exceeds requirements” or is an “area for development” for each criterion. Customers can view their selected products side by side in a “heat map”, then dig deeper in the the analysis in the product reviews.
The EvaluScale matrices require no special software or downloads and combine side-by-side product comparison features with the EvaluScale product review methodology.
Evaluator Group consults with IT end users to help them evaluate architectural and technical options for approaching problems such as evolving the data center into a modern IT platform or how to prepare for Ransomware’s threats. There are many approaches and options, and Evaluator Group provides the expertise to streamline the decision-making process.
