If you’re participating in a Magic Quadrant or Wave assessment for the first time, where should you start? What’s expected and how should you be preparing?

Key things are:

  • Get on the analyst’s radar screen
  • Focus on the specific criteria and weighting for that assessment
  • Understand the analyst’s vision for the market place
  • Express who you are, why you are different and why you are better in this context
  • Do this all via evidence versus claim
